Each dog upon successful completion of the course will have the following:
- Full training records are available, detailing the daily training the dog received while on course. These records provide a way of proving the work that the dog has done so if the dog’s ability is ever questioned the records and dogs will speak for themselves.
- Copy of Certification showing the exercises carried out to determine that the dog is competent to be employed as a detection dog.
- Certificate of Completion.
Your dog must pass several critical tests to ascertain if it is suitable for detection training. Each dog is assessed individually regardless of breed, sex and age.
A good dog is a natural super soldier: strong yet acrobatic, fierce yet obedient. It can leap higher than most men and run twice as fast. Its eyes are equipped for night vision, its ears for supersonic hearing, its mouth for subduing the most fractious prey. But its true glory is its nose. In the nineteen-seventies, researchers found that dogs could detect even a few particles per million of a substance; in the nineties, more subtle instruments lowered the threshold to particles per billion; the most recent tests have brought it down to particles per trillion.
