When a dog locates drugs, it will signal the find with a passive alert – an unassisted sit position. When training drug dogs we never allow them physical contact with the drugs; the dogs are trained only to detect the scent of the drugs. We build each dog’s confidence with positive reward-based training. This ensures our drug dogs are always confident and eager in unfamiliar surroundings.
