Research on Narcotics (Drugs) Detection Dog Training

Braveheart Bio-Dog Academy trains Narcotics (Drugs) Detection Dogs are exposed to a variety of environments simulating real life situations as closely as possible.

The Secret lies in Research and Training

Braveheart Bio-Dog Academy is an undisputed world leader in training dogs for Narcotics (drugs) detection, because we believe in Leadership through Research. The most advanced training aids in the world for Narcotics Detection, Braveheart Bio-strips were researched and developed in our own laboratory, situated on the Braveheart Bio-Dog Academy campus near Pretoria, the Capital City of South Africa. Braveheart Bio-strips enable Narcotics Detection Dogs to get a clear, uncontaminated scent, without any risk of potential harm to the dog, its trainer or handler. Aids containing the raw narcotics can shorten the active life of a Narcotics Detection Dog, because repeated exposure to the raw product can destroy the dogs smelling (olfactory) cells. The Braveheart Bio-strips can also not be abused by anybody getting hold of it.


Cracking the Code

Braveheart Bio-Dog Academy cracked the code to identify specific substances irrespective of what they are combined with. This is of the utmost importance, as many current street drugs contain a mixture of different Narcotic Substances. False identification of Narcotics (drugs) is also minimized, & accuracy enhanced.

Illegal Narcotic Substances include: Cocaine, Ecstasy, Heroin, Mandrax, Cannabis, Methamphetamine, Tik, CAT, Nyaope and Whoonga.

Footnote: A popular misconception is that (a) specific dog breed(s) is/are most suited to be used as Substance Detection Dogs. This is not true. It is about the suitability of the specific dog for its area of application, not the breed.
