What 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 human remains detection training course will include training the canine to detect, human blood (fresh and old) human decomposition material (tissue, adipocere, wet and dry bone, body fluids), burned human tissue and other substances as required to meet the agency’s mission, regional and operational deployment needs. Training will include varying quantities and depth of hidden human remains 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.
