The Science Dogs

Our canine field partners don't just work alongside us, they live alongside us. When they're not in the field, their days are filled with training, physical conditioning, rest, companionship and everything else they need.

We pride ourselves on our dog training program. We use modern, reward-based training methods, and are frequently adapting our program to reflect emerging training and behavior science. The result? Accurate, hard-working dogs that truly love their jobs.
