Did you know: most detection dogs were originally trained to become guide dogs. However, they were better suited to becoming detection dogs because they were always getting distracted by smells and they have super high energy levels.


K9 detection dogs don’t need to prove their skills to know their worth. For most people, just simply being around these extraordinary creatures gives them a sense of security. And for criminals, their presence is enough to deter them from committing a crime as they know what detection dogs are capable of.
