K-9 Drug Detection Enhancement Course

Registration

Registration is restricted to US military and sworn law enforcement personnel.

Course Description

The K-9 Drug Detection Enhancement course is designed for the advanced training of Drug Detector Dog and Handler Teams, which will improve the teams' search ability and help them become both more effective and efficient. Practical exercises will include a variety of buildings and vehicles.

Supervisors (without dogs) are welcome to attend. This will help supervisors without prior handling experience to better understand the ability of the narcotic dog team and what is and is not possible. If you are a student attending without a K-9, please notify the MCTC staff so they can allow the maximum number of K-9 teams to enroll.

Topics Included

  • Selection and training of drug detecting dogs
  • Search strategies and patterns
  • Theory of odor dispersion
  • Setting up training aid containers
  • Vehicular contraband concealment
  • Training records
  • Canine drives and communication
  • Case law

K-9 Drug Detection Enhancement is a 4 Day (32 Hour) course.
