I thought it was a judge  (in the documentary) who rule that the dogs were unreliable evidence.

That's correct, Rob. The cadaver dogs' alerts were ruled inadmissible in Zapata's first trial.

OK the prosecution could have tried to use the cadaver dog evidence, and the defence objected , and the judge made a ruling.  There would be a bit more to it than just the judge making a ruling from the start IMO.

I believe it was as the result of the dogs' high rate of failure in a series of tests.
The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

That was mentioned as well, but not in the documentary in the OP.  "No more reliable than a toss of a coin"  I recall those words.  Even though I disagreed with the judge on this point, for a coin toss is 50 50 not 70 - 30.  A 70% reliability is better than a coin toss.

In my opinion they were concerned that they might be taken back to Portugal. It was the lawyers who advised them to get out quickly.

Which came out in 2008.  What evidence of this in Sept 2007?

Of course I have but we were discussing why the McCanns got out of Portugal.  I don't think you can use arguments that only become apparent later.
