Ball not included.

In this photo you can see a ball has been left inside the scratch box. When there are no drugs in the box the dog is expected to ignore the ball (or other distraction).

The top view shows the PVC chute where a ball or drug toy can be dropped into the box when the dog offers the correct behavior (IE a sit or scratch at the front).

This photo shows the washer that holds the shoot up. The PVC chute can either be up or down. When it is up, a toy can be dropped into the box and the dog can see it. When the shoot is down the toy can be inside the PVC and the dog cannot see it but he can smell it. The scratch boxes are also transported with the chute down.

This image shows the chute in the down position.

Tube drops down into the box for storage & shipping. This photo also shows the small holes that allow the drug odor to come out the front of the box.

The front panel is reversible so that when the box gets scratched up badly from training, you can unscrew the panel and flip it around and have a virtually new box.

Hooks on the back allow the drug box to be hung on a 2' by 4' or on a wall.

Back panel unscrews to reveal where drugs go. This is a secure location fore the narcotics. The dogs are not going to accidentally get into the drugs when this box is used.


This scratch box can be used for narcotics dog training, explosive dog training, or accelerant dog training. It is designed after scratch boxes that are used in the federal police dog schools in Holland. The boxes are 20" tall and 12" wide.

This design has been successfully used by many trainers in North America. It is an excellent training tool that can be used to proof ogs off of odors and to train dogs to lock onto odors.

The best application for these boxes is to have five to seven boxes hung on walls or on 2' by 4' racks mounted in a room.
