    Pyrotechnic detection training for dogs often begins at the puppy stage. By starting from a young age, trainers and handlers can quickly identify which dogs would excel in detection. Obedience training is required, as well as agility and protection training before a dog can be used in the field. Positive reinforcement through the use of treats and toys encourage a dog to search for these substances, learning to communicate with the handler once pyrotechnics have been identified. 

    They are trained to associate the smell of pyrotechnics with a reward, creating a positive link between the two.

    The accuracy of pyrotechnic detection dogs Kent has reached 100% in some circumstances. Sniffer dogs are expertly trained to produce accurate results when detecting pyrotechnics, and their keen sense of smell has proved more effective than the use of pyrotechnic detection technology. Our handlers are also trained to work with the dogs, increasing levels of accuracy when searching for explosives. Whilst all dogs are not 100% reliable, they have a high success rate and work to protect society against the dangers of explosives.

    The most common breeds of dog used for pyrotechnic detection are: English Springer Spaniels, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Border Collies and Labrador Retrievers. These dogs are in high demand for police forces and security firms, and are also effective in detecting drugs and other substances.

    Pyrotechnic detection dogs Kent can be hired by individuals, companies or firms for the purpose of detecting certain substances. They are highly trained dogs who know what to search for and how to alert the presence of pyrotechnics. Using their senses, they are able to locate a variety of substances that pose a danger or threat to the public.

    Once a sniffer dog has detected pyrotechnics, it would’ve been trained to sit next to the discovery. Alert signals differ depending on what the dog is searching for, but the most common practice is to train dogs to sit down once a substance has been detected.

    Pyrotechnic detection dogs Kent are used for increased security measures in airports, festivals, and other areas of potential criminal activity. They are trained to detect explosives as well as identify drugs, weapons, cash, mobiles phones and human diseases. If you are concerned about the potential threat of harmful devices on your site, hiring pyrotechnic detection dogs in Kent can catch those in possession of explosives before they are activated.

    If you’ve attended a festival before, or been to an airport, or anywhere else with a large crowd, chances are you will have encountered a pyrotechnic detection dog Kent at some point before. They might have made you nervous if you aren’t confident around animals, or if they sniffed you and you didn’t know how to act.

    If you are approached by a pyrotechnic detection dog Kent, the best thing you can do is stand still and wait patiently until the dog has done its job. As long as you’re not holding anything that you shouldn’t be, the pyrotechnic detection dog will not bother you and you can continue happily with your day.

    If the pyrotechnic detection dog Kent sits down next to you, there may be an indication that it has smelt explosives. This does not mean that you should immediately panic – Wait for further instruction by the dog handler as they may want to search you. Again, as long as you have nothing to hide, you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

    From puppy age, most pyrotechnic detection dogs Kent can take between 6 and 8 months to train to a high-quality standard, all depending on the dog. Once they have passed the initial sniff test, usually after 6 weeks, dogs will be matched with a handler to work on their process and build them up to a professional level. Pyrotechnic detection dogs Kent will often be trained four days a week, for short periods of time before they are used in the field. In some cases, pyrotechnic detection dogs Kent can be trained in 2-3 months.
