Why employ canines to detect Bed Bugs?
Bed Bug sniffing dogs are trained to work for food and love, not profits. Bed bug detecting canine teams can "sweep" a standard hotel room in 2-3 minutes with pin-point accuracy. A dog's "odor image" is significantly more complex than a human's perception of photographs. For example, from a single drop of urine one canine can identify another K-9's sex, diet, health and even determine whether this dog is dominant or submissive! Dog's can easily distinguish between ten different odor types. They have been employed successfully to detect mold, termites, drugs and arson components. Use of Bed Bug detecting canines has been acknowledged in the court system as an effective tool. A bed bug team is twice as accurate as a human inspector alone. Bed Bug detection canine teams can identify bed bug harborage in walls, under carpeting and baseboards and other inaccessible areas. Humans are traditionally limited to visual inspections rearing accurate results 30% of the time. Humans can take up to one hour per room to perform a thorough visual examination. Not good.
are the smart choice!
All of our canines at K-9 Sweeps LLC are trained for 600-800 hours, by master trainer Bill Whitstine, from the Florida Canine Academy. Our handlers are simultaneously put through a rigorous exercise with carefully selected breeds. Any competitor can claim the above statement as truth. Separation occurs when the Bed Bug dogs actually arrive at our business location. Our unique training regime is performed daily without fail. Cage training insures the K9's remain quiet and discreet during inspections and examinations. Our bed bug canine scent detection teams are tested and 3rd party certified on a yearly basis by the World Detector Dog Organization (WDDO).
Scent discrimination wheel tests
the canine every day to stay sharp
A scent discrimination wheel is employed to keep the
Bed Bug dog accurate at distinguishing between Bed Bugs, plaster, carpet
fibers and other competing odors. Our Bed Bug canines engage in fitness
training every day to insure they maintain a high energy level and can
work with diligence. Bed Bug “hides” are performed to enable the canine
to seek out Bed Bug activity in a real life setting. Our dog’s teeth
are brushed regularly because gum disease can affect a canine’s nasal
