Vapour Detection an Art Form of Training

Vapour Detection

Advanced Canine Technologies in conjunction with Scent Detection Academy are offering a unique opportunity to participate in 3 modules on how to learn and understand the technical aspects of vapour detection using dogs

Eric Burchell was involved for 7 years with the UK, USA and South African government's to formulate what was a great concept into a workable and acceptable recognized technology

The system works using suction to take air samples which are then analysed by dogs possibly in a different location so can be used in a covert way where dogs are not visible, it is already used by the security industry in air and sea ports, the medical profession and has many other applications to take samples in a quick and efficient way

This training is not available anywhere else in the world 

Vapour detection is at the cutting edge of dog training disciplines and requires skill and dedication from any participants interested in learning about this fascinating way of training

The modules will cover many aspects including, dog selection, sample preparation/storage, equipment usage, understanding air flow statistics, imprinting the dogs, process of sample analysis and understanding behavioral issues whilst progressing through the training process

Learn this fascinating technology using operant conditioning training principles and proven and tested lecturers with decades of training experience

There are limited places available for this rare educational opportunity!!

Module 1 dates are October 8th -14th 2018 Netherlands
