Scent discriminate bloodhounds are the cornerstone of successful K9 trailing teams. Scent Evidence K9 dogs are trained with the M77® Human Scent Discriminate K9 Training Plan, utilizing registered and standardized Trailing processes for training our AKC registered K9’s. Each Trained K9 has been socialized and trained to trail one to twenty-four-hour aged trails.

M77® K9 Trailing 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.

We offer initial and ongoing scent-discriminate canine trailing training for canine teams upon request and through semi-annual workshops. On-call coaching services are also available for canine handlers. Our training services include a handler-friendly spreadsheet and the innovative SEK9 field trailing app that allows handlers to document data throughout the training process for each canine. The Trailing app tracks progress, logs results, and meets SWGDOG record keeping requirements. Collected data can then be downloaded and analyzed to measure success. This ensures important documentation for court cases.

New advancements in scent-discriminate K9 training provide operational resources for searches related to missing or endangered persons, as well as investigation of violent crimes.  Utilization of scent-discriminate K9 teams in response agency daily operations is an innovative, effective, and efficient practice.
