Using Police K-9 to smell bedbugs in apartment.

My sister lives in an apartment complex that has routine maintenance checks. She informed me that tomorrow they will be coming through everyones apartments to check filters etc etc. She also told me that they bring a police and their K-9 unit with them to check for bedbugs. I was shocked when she told me this and can't believe that this is even legal to do. How are they able to use the police and their dogs to search for bedbugs? How is this legal?

Search warrant in Indiana

In the State of Indiana, is it legal for the police to stop you from entering your house while they are waiting to obtain a search warrant? Can you point me to any statutes or literature that addresses this issue?

Probable cause vs consent in speeding stop

I was pulled over for speeding and the state trooper claimed he smelled marijuana and was going to call out the K9 unit. Ultimately nothing happened, but I have questions about the situation and procedures. [more inside]

But what if I don't want to?

This video clip from the TLC leaves me wondering what should be done. I know to never allow the police to search anything and to not answer questions. But what if the request is not a question but a demand rationalized by the officer as a safety issue. Bonus question: does the door being opened count as consent to search? YANML YANAL TINLA apply [more inside]
