Bomb Dogs and Bomb Dog Training

Realistic explosive detection dog training.

  • At Southern Coast K9, we put our bomb dogs through realistic explosive detection training — we use real explosive materials in training, not simulated scents.
  • Each dog learns to detect the unique scent of different explosive materials. By the end of their training, bomb dogs are able to detect approximately 15 different combinations of explosive materials — in trace samples and in bulk samples.
  • As ‘passive-alert’ dogs, our bomb dogs learn to signal the presence of anything suspicious by assuming an unassisted ‘sit’ position near a suspected explosive device.
  • During our explosive detection dog training, we painstakingly recreate the scenarios and situations bomb dogs are likely to encounter when they go to work for real.
  • A Southern Coast K9 bomb dog will confidently work in airports, public facilities, ports of call, campuses, shopping centers, and combat zones.
  • Southern Coast K9 explosive detection dogs are prepared for the job, and have been successfully put to the test throughout the nation, and across the globe.
