Drug/Controlled Substances Detection

It is rapidly becoming more common to use privately trained and handled Detector Dogs to support organizational drug or substance use policies in the workplace and publicly accessed areas. To be effective, minimize potential exposure to legal liability and provide value for dollars spent, private detector dog teams must possess several important characteristics.  Properly trained handlers and dogs is just the starting point.  Law enforcement dog handler experience, police service dog and handler training experience and recognized detector dog legal expertise is essential.

Service Oriented

We are specializing in offering quality canine search and evaluation capabilities. Sniff It Out K9 Services Ltd. and Fast K9 Services personnel possess extensive backgrounds as both operational RCMP Police Service Dog Handlers as well as extensive experience as RCMP Police Dog Trainers. Sniff It Out K9 Services Ltd and Fast K9 Services’ working dogs are either former qualified police service dogs or have been individually trained by Sniff It Out K9 Services and Fast K9 Services to the same standards as operational police service dogs.

About US

Capabilities, Standards and Licensing

Sniff It Out K9 Services Ltd. and Fast K9 Services’ detector dogs are trained to work in many environments and situations which make them suitable for work in oilfield, commercial, industrial and residential applications. Dogs are trained to indicate a target odour through passive sit confirmation and are guaranteed to be reliable (No false or handler induced confirmations).  

Controlled substance imprinted odours include:

All dogs and handlers have undergone a validation/certification procedure administered by an internationally recognized Police Service Dog Expert (supporting documentation available upon request) which mirrors the standard used by the RCMP Police Dog Service.  Additionally, handlers are licensed under the new Alberta Security Services and Investigators Act, British Columbia Security Services Act and Manitoba Criminal Justice Private Investigators and Security Guards.

Legal Expertise

Sniff It Out K9 Services Ltd. and Fast K9 Services are able to fully back up any positive detector dog indication with years of law enforcement related experience and investigative ability.   We have been officially recognized as experts in the handling, deployment and training of Police Service Dogs by the Criminal Courts of Alberta.  We have extensive experience within the civil litigation legal process and we are able to effectively articulate both our actions as handlers as well as the actions of our detector dogs.  This experience and ability is an essential component of any professionally deployed detector dog service in today’s litigation conscious world.  It is also critical when interacting with Union Representatives in the workplace and is an essential component of properly articulating actions taken in supporting a Client’s Alcohol and Drug in the Workplace Policies.
