Hire K9 Explosive Detector Dog (EDD) teams EDD teams are each comprised of a dog and handler, and conduct searches for clients worldwide for a variety of explosive materials.
Trained Explosive Detection K9s
We start by selecting dogs with a high search drive and strong passive alert. Based on their natural characteristics and proven success as detection dogs, Hire K9 Teams prefers to use Labrador Retrievers, Springer Spaniels, German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, and other qualified dog breeds for all our explosive detection dogs’ contracts. We only choose dogs from proven working dog bloodlines with an impressive level of socialization and a superior sense of smell, strong drive, intelligence, stable temperament and eagerness to please.
We prepare our explosive detection dogs by using actual explosives materials in training, and not simulated scents. Our explosive detection training is thorough; we recreate the scenarios and situations bomb detection dogs will likely encounter when they are deployed in the work field.
DETECTING 15 DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS
Our explosive detection dogs are trained to detect the specific scent of a variety of explosive materials. When training is complete our dogs are able to detect approximately 15 different combinations of explosive materials, and they can detect both trace samples and bulk samples.
OUR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION DOGS EMPLOY THE
Our dogs are trained to give a ‘passive-alert’ signal when they detect anything suspicious—they assume an unassisted ‘sit’ position near a suspected explosive device.
off-leash explosives detection dogs
