Search dogs, also known as ‘sniffer dogs’ are associated with a high sense of smell to locate specific items or substances. A search dog is trained to not only locate, but also taught to alert the dog handler to any banned substances.

Search dogs are useful and offer a unique perspective when used for security purposes. As humans, we perceive life predominantly through sight, whereas dogs rely on their sense of smell to interpret their environment. A search dog’s sense of smell can be up to forty times greater than the average human, opening up opportunities for searching and tracking. Not only this, but security dogs have better hearing, often locking onto sounds from a greater distance.

Commonly used to locate and find specific items or substances, search dogs are useful in niche scenarios. We work with our clients to ensure they receive the best search dog or detection dog based on their criteria. This can include drug, explosive as well as pyrotechnic detection.
