Dog & PipeSherlock Hounds Detection Canines—The Power of a Drug Dog’s Nose
Can coffee really stop a dog from finding drugs? How potent is a dog’s nose? Are all narcotics dogs German Shepherd’s or Malinois… or police dogs for that matter? How are they trained? Bring all your questions about narcotics K-9s as we bust common myths and introduce the realities of K-9’s working side-by-side with their human partners. See our four-legged friends in action and find out more about how these special dogs are helping to keep schools and communities safe.

Web_Kthln_SH_2041Kathleen Mayger has been training animals professionally for over twenty years, but honed her skills as a drug dog handler when she began work with Sherlock Hounds in 2005. Now co-owner of the company, Kathleen works with multiple narcotics dogs to help make schools and communities safer. She also uses her experience for her current work in progress which stars a female K-9 handler for the National Forest Service.
