Scent DiscriminateTrained K9's
Scent Evidence K9 provides scent-discriminate AKC bloodhounds. Bloodhounds are used because they are the preferred breed for older trails, and they present a non-threatening image. Emergency response entities and persons can purchase K9s that have been socialized and trained to trail one to twenty-four hour aged trails.
M77® K9 Trailing Program
Our 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.
Scent Evidence K9's new training facility is located on 1000-acres in Bolivar, TN. Our training team produces world-class scent discriminate AKC bloodhounds and scent detection K9's specializing in Electronic Communication Device (ECD) detection for law enforcement agencies and emergency responders. The facility also serves as a training hub for K9 handler teams across the country.

Seek and You Shall Find. Matthew 7:7
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.
