An explosive detection dog’s scent is unbeatable

As humans, we rely on our sight, which isn’t so helpful when life-threatening substances are hidden. This is why explosive detection dogs Kent are so important, not only as a man’s best friend but also to ensure everyone’s health isn’t at risk. A bomb dog’s Kent sense of smell can detect many different particular scents due to their highly advanced olfactory system. As a result, this makes them perfect for detection in highly charged and confusing environments, where there are endless possibilities of where a particular explosive could be hidden. A bomb dog possesses up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses compared to humans that only have 6 million. This combined with the dog’s calculated brain is able to detect even the faintest scents.

    Detection Dogs Kent FAQs

    Once a detection dog Kent has identified the scent of explosives, they will alert the handler of their findings. Explosive detection dogs Kent are taught two kinds of alerts, a passive alert and an aggressive alert. Passive alerts are where the dog either sits down next to the odour source or locks in place and stares. Aggressive alerts consist of the dog pawing at the ground or at the item in question, without damaging personal property. 

    When dealing with explosives, handlers will train their dogs to alert in a passive manner, as aggressive alerts could be dangerous. Handlers should easily spot when their explosive detection dog has alerted to the presence of explosives, before dealing with the situation in Kent.

    Dogs are used for threats from explosives in Kent through rigorous detection training that begins at the puppy stage. These dogs are taught to find the scent of explosives and alert once that odour has been identified. If a bomb threat has been made in Kent, or someone has reported a potential presence of explosives, detection dogs Kent will be sent to the scene to sniff out any explosives before they cause harm. With a dog’s scent of smell up to 100,000 stronger than that of humans, they are perfect for detecting dangerous substances. 

    Detection dogs Kent are extremely useful when it comes to identifying explosives, which is why they are frequently used across many industries such as the police force, the military and border control. They accurately and efficiently prevent bomb threats and explosives from making their way into the UK, both of which could potentially harm hundreds or even thousands of UK citizens. 

    Explosive detection dogs Kent can be up to 100% reliable when it comes to detecting certain odours but mostly detect between 60% and 85% of explosives. Whilst they are highly trained and skilled in their work, detection dogs Kent do still make mistakes and can’t be relied on 100% of the time. 

    The reliability of an explosive detection dog Kent may also depend on its level of experience, with older dogs more skilled in detection than recently trained canines. The relationship between a detection dog and its handler may also impact its reliability, especially if a handler can’t recognise an alert.

    The most common dog breeds used to detect explosives in Kent are German Shepherds, German Wirehaired Pointers, Labrador Retrievers, Belgian Malinois and Vizslas. These dogs will be assessed from birth and trained up to serve as explosive detection canines. 

    Canines are used for the detection of explosives in Kent due to their sense of smell, which is believed to be up to 100,000 times stronger than humans. This immense ability has been utilised by security industries, training dogs to detect the faintest of odours in order to protect the general public. It is in a dog’s nature to hunt, search and detect, which is why they thrive in mentally stimulating environments such as drug detection. 

    Police forces, the military and border control are just some of the industries that utilise the skills of explosive detection dogs Kent. Security companies may also have their own team of detection dogs that can be hired out when needed, protecting certain premises from the threat of explosives.
