How does a dog find evidence of drugs, alcohol, or gun powder?

  • A dog’s nose is 1000’s times more powerful than a human.

  • Detection dogs undergo weeks of specialized training to hunt for a wide band of drugs, alcohol, and gun powder.

  • The dogs do not bring contraband to the handlers.

  • They are trained to sit/and or bark (called an “alert”) by a suspicious area. 

  • Handlers mark and log that area.

How often should a school/home/business conduct a dog search?

  • There are no established guidelines for the effectiveness of random searches.

  • The frequency is determined in collaboration with the clients based on perceived need, findings of past searches, and the current cultural environment.
  • Regularly scheduled visits act as a deterrent to further illicit behaviors and it is important to ensure the intervention is successful.

 How often should I use this type of service?

  • Frequency will depend on the individual needs of the client.
  • Some clients may want only one search to rid the problem, while others may want to schedule regular visits to provide a consistent deterrent.
  • Research shows when drug sweeps are performed regularly, it is often enough to deter illegal behaviors.

How long does a search take?

  • This will depend on a number of factors.
  • Factors that affect the time of search are: the size of the area to be searched; if vehicles, parking lots, multiple buildings need to be checked; and the number of dogs that used to conduct the searches.
