These dogs can be trained in either narcotics or explosives detection in addition to the patrol work.
As a student in this program you will develop handler skills in both detection and patrol work while gaining valuable experience running real world detection and patrol problems.
This course would be ideal for those civilians interested in pursuing a career in the quickly expanding private security industry or a company wanting to add in-house K9 security to their existing program.
