Explosive Detection Canine (EDC)
These dogs are specifically trained to detect odors for unauthorized explosives, incendiaries, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), or other destructive substances. All of these dogs are working breeds that are imprinted on real explosives, not synthetic substances. Each dog is hard working, have tremendous hunt drives and want to please their handler. An EDC is a single purpose canine for the Air Cargo and Freight industries or other civilian needs. However, for Military or Police duties a dual or multi-purpose Canine can be an Explosive Detection Canine as well.
Single Purpose K-9
Single Purpose canines are trained to perform one task, be it detection, tracking, patrol work or protection. The single purpose canine has a limited role but excels in its trained area. These dogs are superbly trained for the specific tasks desired and are provided to the client along with Handler training to familiarize the team and get them working together for specific mission support.
Dual Purpose K-9
A Dual-Purpose canine is a canine trained to perform multiple tasks but excels at two, usually patrol work and detection. Explosives and narcotics are the two most common but it can also be Arson or contraband which is a mixture of detection odors based on a specific need. Although called “Dual Purpose” many canines are also trained to track and conduct article searches for sensitive evidence-based items. These dogs are superbly trained for the specific tasks desired and are provided to the client along with Handler training to familiarize the team and get them working together for specific mission support.
