BMC Veterinary Research Section Editor, Prof Holger Volk and his team at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, identify in a pilot RCT that trained detection dogs can discriminate between samples from SARS-CoV-2 infected humans and control samples.
We encourage our authors to adhere to appropriate reporting standards when planning, conducting and writing about their research. Therefore, it's important to note that the ARRIVE guidelines have recently been updated to help facilitate their use in practice. The new ARRIVE 2.0 guidelines can be found here.

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time. Thank you.
