Gah! Spent the last half hour trying to find it. Seen it earlier when i was looking up an answer for someone else. It was in the search results but i didn't open it so it's not in my History folder.

There was some experiment conducted (some time last century) involving wolves and dogs. They were police or military dogs of some such... Anyhow the wolves or wolf dogs (i forget) found the desired hidden object in seconds where as it took the trained dogs three to four minutes! (It still would have had to rely on commands or hand signals so i figure this is probably related.) (the study was done in one of the Eastern countries.)
