Abstract:

The abuse of hard narcotics heroin and cocaine has risen sharply in recent years, and coping with this problem has become an important responsibility of law enforcement agencies. In order to assist these agencies in adequately carrying out this increasingly important responsibility, methods have been developed for the training and use of narcotic detector dogs. Considering these advantages it is obvious that a good detector dog and a well trained handler can search for narcotics rapidly and efficiently. A detector dog can be a valuable asset in narcotic detector work and this manual is designed to describe, in a step by step fashion, how to train dogs to effectively search out and respond to hard narcotics.
