About the Course

This is an intensive, hands-on course, designed to teach individuals the necessary skills to select, imprint, shape search behavior and advance the detection performance of explosive detection dogs. The four blocks of instruction will include classroom lecture, practical training, independent study and video review.  Completion of the course is dependent upon passing weekly written and practical examinations as well as a final performance test with selected canines.


Terminal Objective:  Given a group of untrained canines, identify and train the suitable canine candidates to search for and detect hidden explosives in various environments.

Equipment Needed

AMK9 Vapor Wake® Division will provide canines for the course. Please bring your own leash.

Before the seminar, reserve your hotel stay.


AMK9 is pleased to partner with “service dog friendly” hotels at both of our locations. To make reservations, please contact the hotel, and be sure to let them know you are a student at AMK9! We will loan you a Vari-Kennel for your hotel room.
