Detection Dog Training:

Our detection dog training service is carried out in-house by our highly experienced trainers.  The dogs are trained to understand target odours and be proficient in searching in relevant workplace environments. We can imprint the dogs here and then train them along with the handlers or alternatively send fully trained canines to be paired with handlers and deliver a handlers course onsite as is the case with our international projects.

Available Dogs, Training Times and Prices:

All dogs are selected after completing a throrogh assessment process overseen by our Head Trainer, Martin Dominick. The dog or dogs are then exclusively assigned to the most appropriate client requirement. One dog or ten doesn’t matter, each dog will undergo this assessment process before being accepted into the program .
The minimum training time that is required for each dog is generally 3 months depending on personal training requirements for the type of detection dog required. Prices are on application with a 50% deposit required on placement of your order and balance on completion. If more than one dog is required, or you require a team and handler training please contact us directly for a quote. For more information or to place an order email or call us on + 61 7 411 530 861

Suitable Breeds for Detection Dog Training:

We assess your dog on its ability to do this type of work not its breed, although some breeds such as Labradors, Spaniels, Kelpies, Belgian Malinois, Beagles or German Shepherds are much more suited when it comes to detection work. There are a lot of Cross Bred dogs that also make the best Detection Dogs and have great work ethics. If you have a preference of breed please discuss this with our trainer before any training begins.
