WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

Your bloodlines and puppies are wanted for this important work.

Experts recognize that there is no better or more efficient way to detect explosives than using high quality, specially trained scent detector dogs.

 Since the terrorist attacks on 9-11, and subsequent attacks worldwide, global demand for high quality explosives detection dogs has skyrocketed.

AKC’s Vice President of Government Relations, Sheila Goffe, stated that. A shortage of appropriate, domestically-bred dogs available for work as explosive detection dogs presents a significant threat to U.S. security.”
