K2 Canine’s remarkable Stand-Off Detection Dog (SODD) help keep their handlers out of harms way by performing off-leash searches for target odor at distances of up to 300 meters away from its handler. This off-leash detection capability allows for a more efficient, thorough and safe search of any required area.
The Stand-Off Detection Dog’s unmatched detection capabilities, superior directional control and obedience are the ultimate tool for the most dangerous situations. These off-leash canines search buildings, roadways, vehicles, objects, culverts or anywhere else they are deployed to detect explosives, weapons, narcotics and other substances as required.
Because of the military drawdown in Afghanistan, the Marine Corps has placed many of these highly trained dogs with Law Enforcement agencies around the United States. Unfortunately, Handler Training was not part of the hand-off. That’s where K2 comes in. We are currently offering Stand-Off Detection Handler Courses to men and women who have an Improvised Explosive Device Detector Dog but have not been trained in how to best utilize them in a Law Enforcement Setting.
