Explosive Detection

The use of canines for explosive detection is a necessity for the safety of your business, industrial operation, government facility, event, or venue! MDDS K9 Teams have been deployed across the Nation, the Caribbean, and Afghanistan. Our canine teams undergo extensive one-on-one training, hold National Certifications equivalent to those of Law Enforcement canines, and routinely partake in on-the-job training over the course of several duty periods prior to being placed in service. We also pride ourselves on the fact that our canines are exceptionally well socialized. Our teams are routinely working and training in environments that include crowds of all sizes and ages, various sports facilities and events, numerous resorts and tourist attractions to ensure we can meet the needs of a wide range of clients.
