Burlington’s Buster, the beagle dog, is one of the “partners” – along with his human business partner Paddy Reagan – in Vermont Bed Bug Dog, says the Burlington Free Press. He does not eradicate the little pests, but rather pinpoints where the little buggers are hiding. His modus operandi is to sniff them out, point them out by scratching on the object, wolf down his goodie reward, and bask in the praise of his partner. His talents are sharpened through training sessions using captive bed bugs planted by Reagan. Beagles are bred for this kind of work according to Reagan, helping to simplify the eradication process that is done after Buster has discovered their hideouts. “They say that finding bedbugs without a dog is like searching for a needle moving through a haystack,” says Reagan. Buster had no comment.
