With the rise in organised crime and drug funded terrorism, ScentPro have experienced a noted increase in the demand for our professionally trained, high drive, Drug Detection Dogs (DD’s).
All our Drug Detection Dogs are trained to a minimum of ACPO standard (Association of Chief Police Officers). Our Drug Detection Dogs undergo an intense training program. The program consists of environmental training, agility and obedience training and of course scent imprint and recognition training.
At ScentPro, we only ever use “live Drugs” to train our dogs. We do not believe in the use of pseudo odours as used by other detection dog trainers.
Every ScentPro trained DD is conditioned to display a solid freeze indication upon discovery of a target odour. Some clients prefer an alternative indication type. ScentPro are able to train any desired indication type including a bark, scratch, stand /stare or down indication.
As well as being assessed initially for environmental soundness, ScentPro’s Drug Detection Dogs are routinely exposed to new and challenging environments throughout their detection training. We aim to ensure that our clients are supplied with a dog which is “fit for purpose” and one which is immediately able to undertake operational taskings in a variety of given environments. As part of our basic training, Our DD’s are trained to operate within transport hubs, office buildings, shopping and town centres. They are also introduced to aircraft, trains, trams, various vehicles and vessels where required.
Our Drugs Detection Dogs are trained to conduct the following search types.
- Vehicle Search
- Venue Search
- Open Area Search
Our Drugs Detection dogs are trained as standard on a variety of Class A and class C drugs which can include
- Crack Cocaine
- Cannabis Resin
- Cannabis Herbal
- Canabis Oil
We are happy to add to the basic target odour spectrum at the request of our clients. Please contact our office to discuss alternative odour sets and target odours.
