Dog sniffs out bed bugs


BURLINGTON, Vt. (CNN) -- A Beagle named Buster and his master, Paddy Reagan, are the first certified canine pest detection team in Vermont.

The career was born from a personal nightmare for Reagan, when he and his family got bedbugs six years ago. They hired specially trained dogs from Connecticut to inspect their home. The experience led Reagan to found an entomology scent detection canine program in Florida. J&K Canines trained buster for the first four months, and then Reagan took over.

A few months later the duo's business, Vermont Bed Bug Dog, was born.
