Training Narcotics Detection Dogs

Length: 1 Hour, 38 Minutes, 30 Seconds • Released 01-01-2008

Rating: 3/5 Stars

This photo is of a local Narcotics Officer with Ed Frawley. They are holding 1 lb. of meth found by Ed's K-9, Gabby. The drugs were found hidden in the trunk of a car during a normal vehicle search. These drugs would never have been located without the dog, there had been no intelligence that this car had dope in it.

Using a Narcotics detection dog (drug dogs) is "the most unobtrusive method available to search a suspects vehicle, house, or belongings." The goal of every narcotics dog handler should be to eliminate false indications by his dog (an intentional false indication could lead to violation of a persons constitutional rights). This video emphasizes training techniques that will provide you with a dog that not only finds drugs but also a dog that will not false hit on cutting agents and other odors.

Ed Frawley (the producer of this video and owner of Leerburg) was a reserve officer with the Dunn County Sheriff's Department in Wisconsin. He and his dog, Gabby, have been involved in hundreds of narcotics arrests and they have seized over $200,000 in cash while working as a part time reserve officer. Ed has testified many times in local courts and 4 times in Federal Court on narcotics cases that he was involved with.

This tape details selection testing dogs for narcotics work. We demonstrate selection testing with several breeds of dogs. The video discusses the types of narcotics to train with and the safety measures a handler is required to take with the different types of drugs.

We demonstrate how to start a dog in training and how to advance him through his training in a step by step manner until he is ready to work the street.

Training sections also include: leash handling, building the dogs indications, training the dog to indicate more than one type of drug, training the dog OFF of cutting agents and other scents. We discuss when to use corrections and when not to, we discuss how to deal with handler errors in training. We discuss how to organize a search how to read your dog during a search and how to proof a dog.

Dated but still holds some valuable information in NDD work. The content didn't blow my mind but provided a valuable contrast to my department's training methods and I took a few gems of information away from it.

Should have read prior comments. Completely outdated, only shows active alerts. OLD SCHOOL methods. Ed, do your business a favor and pull these outdated videos from the lineup. I suspect they'll do your business far more damage than good. Customers don't expect these outdated videos. Disappointed.

Very out dated video (1980's?). Needs to be updated to show current 2016 training including passive alerts.

Very old video and very old methods, nothing on passive alerts. All around disappointed.
