All training is carried out at The K9 Centre and other venues relevant to the particular type of detection dog training.
Your dog must pass several critical tests to ascertain if it is suitable for detection training. Each dog is assessed individually regardless of breed, sex and age, but is assessed by our head trainer.
Each Dog is also medically assessed before its training starts and must fit and healthy.
You are required to spend time with us at handover stage to ensure you understand how a detection dog is used in its required job. For larger dog and handler teams is it usually more cost effective if we have a trainer travel to you or travel can be arranged.
We assess your dog on its ability to do this type of work not its breed, although some breeds such as Labradors, 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.
