Who is this course for?

The Adlerhorst Patrol Detection Dog (APDD) course has been designed to train canines to detect narcotics, explosives, firearms, accelerants, human remains and other substances as required to meet the mission, regional and operational deployment needs of each agency. During the course the canines will be trained to use a systematic pressure search to discriminate undesired odors and passively alert to the source of desired odors.

The focus of detection training is also with the K9 Handler to assist them in becoming valuable and successful partners to their canines. Detection Handler development will provide the skills and knowledge necessary to maintain basic detection proficiency and increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the K9 Team.

Course Description:

Initial Training will be conducted by a competent, qualified detector canine trainer using a structured curriculum with specific training and learning objectives. The firearm detection training course will include training the canine to detect firearms both cleaned and recently fired, magazines (both loaded and empty), loaded shells (both brass and shotgun), gun powders- both black & smokeless and shell casings (which are empty and have been previously discharged). Training will include varying quantities and depth of hidden firearm odors. It will include exposing the canine to a variety of different types of searches and locations, utilizing open areas, vehicles, buildings, parcels, luggage, etc. to conceal the target odor.
