M77® Scent Discriminate Training Program

Our registered training plan was designed to develop fundamental skills in dogs and handlers for human scent discriminate trailing. Handlers are taught to use the standardized processes contained in the plan for training canines to indicate the presence, absence, and path of a targeted person utilizing the scent of the identified individual. Our innovative trailing app gives handlers the ability to measure the success of each exercise from their phone and meets all SWGDOG requirements.

Electronic Communication Device (ECD) Scent Detection

As a former FBI Forensic Canine Operations Specialist, Paul Coley has worked many cases using K9's to successfully locate cell phones and other devices. Finding a target's phone can give law enforcement a significant edge in locating the person who used it.
