Detection Dog Training

Synapse Canine Learning Center offers premium detection dog training services for working dogs and their handlers. We offer complete detection training programs for novice or green dogs, foundational programs for detection puppy candidates and solution programs for active detection K9 teams. We possess years of experience working with a variety of detection types, and will prepare you and your K9 to succeed in your discipline.

Our innovative detection dog training programs are science based and built around optimizing a dog’s working capabilities through environmental training, highly effective associative target odor pairing, drive development, search strategy and stamina development,  behavioral generalization and more. We strive to develop dog-handler teams who are confident and effective working in any environment they may find themselves having to work. 

From the initial evaluation to teaching your dog to locate target odor, proofing, problem-solving and deployments, our goal is to ensure that you get the best possible tool to get the job done as smoothly and accurately as possible – every time. 

Our detection dog services are highly comprehensive and also include the development of effective handler skills. We teach handlers to effectively read their dog’s behavior during searches, how to understand canine olfaction and odor theory, how to keep training records, how to keep their dog’s working motivation high, how to navigate potential issues and training plateaus and more. Ultimately, we want you to leave feeling confident that you are the best possible handler that you can be.
