The report describes the performance evaluation of three dogs trained to detect heroin and explosives. The dogs, a German Shepherd, a Golden Labrador Retriever, and a Royal Standard Poodle, were evaluated by MERDC personnel during the time period July 1972 through September 1972. Two objectives were accomplished First, to determine whether dogs could detect explosives buried up to 8 inches deep in dry sand and second, to determine the capabilities and limitations of dogs to search out explosive samples concealed in a variety of scenarios such as office areas, and residences. For completeness, the results of the heroin- and weapon-detection evaluaton conducted by contractor personnel in San Antonio, Texas, is included in the test results. Author
