Our mobile drug detection dog units are an effective measure against narcotics and it’s illegal distribution.

Drugs can and do come in various forms and can only be positively identified when subjected to chemical analysis.

However, no piece of equipment can match a dogs nose so you can be rest assured of a safe, drugs-free environment.

Dogs will continue to play an important role in search. They can be used in a variety of situations and are highly adaptive.

Our Dogs will play an important role searching in two ways


  • Operated on lead under full control of handler at all times
  • Ideal for the searching of civilians
  • The dog is trained to search in a passive manner (non-intrusive)
  • The dogs are training having minimum contact with the persons as they screen them


  • Operated off-leash where safety permits
  • Under full control of handler at all times
  • This method is ideal for covering large areas in a short time
  • The dog is trained to search in a pro-active manner (intrusive).
  • Allows the dog to search spaces where drugs might be concealed or used
