- Lost family
- Lost pet
As new drugs enter the market, our dogs will be trained to also detect them; however, it is safe to assume that our dogs will detect on any substance that we train them to go after.
Are the dog searches confidential?
All of the searches, finds, and test results are held in strict confidence. Even our company vehicles can be unmarked, in order to provide the highest level of discretion.
Are all your vehicles unmarked?
No, we have both; unmarked and well labeled vehicles for our searches. We will send which ever vehicle fits the client's needs best. Some clients need the visibility of a search team on their premises, such as schools, games, and events; while others need to maintain secrecy with search activities due to VIP traffic.
It is the client's decision, although we will advise what other clients are doing in the industry.
Why does anyone need this service?
Any person who has children (school age or not) that wants the assurance that their children are not involved with drugs will profit from a scan of their house, automobiles, garage, etc... It will give you the peace of mind that, as a parent, you need.
If you suspect another member in the family of using drugs, a discreet search will give you the assurance you need.
In some cases, homes that have live-in caregivers, teachers, or nannies should also be suspected since they play such an important role in your children's lives.
In addition, in some domestic disputes, if alleged drugs are present, custody matters may be easier to solve if a clean house is detected.
What happens if the dogs find drugs?
If our dogs detect and find drugs, we will mark the spot, and find the contraband with you present. We are not allowed to take the drugs with us, but we can test it for you to ensure you know what was found without question.
We will give you our K9 University Drug Help packet filled with local and national organizations and anti-drug groups, rehabs, etc... This will be a resource packet that will tell you what to do next to properly help the family member.
Once you have given the family member the help needed, it is recommended that you schedule a follow-up visit with us to ensure that the child and area remain clean.
What occurs during a dog search?
We will never search your business, house, or building totally unsupervised. We do insist however, on having only one person with us, to minimize the opportunity for drugs to be moved from room to room by the user. It is best that the potentially suspected person not be present at all, as that will reduce friction with family members. We will never perform a dog search without a signed contract that states expectations, as well as confidentiality.
Our search dogs are taken from room to room, if they pick up a scent, the dog is trained to passively alert to the spot (our handler will then mark the spot for further testing).
What kind of dogs do you use for searches?
Although it is not important the type of dog used for great search results, but rather the quality of their search and tracking, we at K9 University use dogs that have ONLY been trained by us, and are at their highest training peak. Currently our search staff includes German Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers and Blood Hounds.
Is K9 University affiliated with law enforcement?
No, we are not. Although we do hold licenses with several state and federal law enforcement agencies (this is only required to be able to carry, store, and train with dangerous substances), we are not, however, affiliated with law enforcement or other government agencies. These are truly confidential, discreet drug-dog searches that will allow parents an opportunity to intervene and get help for the family member.
If these questions and answers do not address your concerns and clearly help you with your decision, please contact us, and receive discreet care.
K9 University is a family owned business that cares and understands what it means to help children get back on their feet through proper help.
What are the benefits of using a K9 University detection dog?
There are many reasons for using dogs over other methods, and equally as many for using K9 University's services:
- Effective and efficient
- A highly confidential service
- We tailor our programs by your search needs
- We are licensed by the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics,
and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations.
- We provide the most sophisticated and effective system available for drug search(es)
- Dog searches provide a strong deterrent to discourage drugs
- The most cost effective system to incorporate
- Nothing needs to be unlocked or open to detect the presence of the substance
- There are no installation expenses (hidden cameras, etc...)
- There is no need to pre-screen or hire additional security personnel
- We train law enforcement canines to detect substances
- Noninvasive, non-confrontational
How often should an employer or school conduct dog searches to be effective?
We truly believe that it is best that the details of your searches be understood and discussed individually, since they will vary by size of location, geography, and contraband sought. Some industries allow more random searches than others.
One of the greatest benefits of a canine detection process is that it is a deterrent to students and employees, and therefore should be done on a random basis to continue to discourage the drug users.
How often should a home owner conduct dog searches to be effective?
Again, one of the biggest benefits of a canine detection process is that it is a deterrent to the family members that may have a drug problem.
If we had a positive find once, it will be beneficial to do a few more on a random basis to ensure the child no longer has a problem.
As your children mature, their friends will change, and their ability to reject influential peer pressure may diminish.
My child has never experimented with drugs, do I need this service?
Research shows that parents are typically the last to know about drug or alcohol use; further, kids can be influenced by new friends they meet every day. Most drug and alcohol use starts with recreational purposes, and from a trusted source where the substance is believed to not be dangerous.
A search of your dwelling, auto, and garage is recommended, if for no other reason than to set your mind at ease. Since it is confidential, there is no harm done if the results show that the house is clean. However, you would not want to miss the opportunity to intervene and help your child if the results show that there is a drug problem.
How reliable are your dogs?
Our K9 University detection dogs are extremely reliable in finding contraband or scent leading to contraband. Dogs have been used for their incredible scenting abilities for years. There is no better method in the drug industry to properly detect the presence of contraband (illegal or prescription) than a detection dog.
If we find your area clean, it simply means that it was clean of drugs or residue the day of the search, but it does not speak to a future contamination of the area. Our dogs are able to detect a past cross-contamination or residual exposure (drugs that may have been there, but were moved prior to the search).
What is the cost for a K9 University Detection Dog visit?
The price for the service depends on whether it's residential, school, or commercial. We are able to offer much better pricing to commercial and school entities due to contractually agreed terms.
Otherwise, a typical residential sweep costs $200.
This is a very reasonable price to pay to either clear your mind of drug concerns, or to identify a drug user in the household. The earlier you positively identify a drug user, the higher the probability that you'll be able to successfully intervene.
The average cost to litigate an arrest, recover loss property, court fees, and drug treatment costs Americans approximately $10,000 per incident.
YOU are your kid's strongest defender and advocate. It is important that you get them help if needed, or gain peace of mind if the child is clean --- priceless!!!
Who trains K9 University detection dogs?
Our dogs have been imported, bred, selected, and trained by our own training staff. We are experienced dog trainers that have been training since 1985, and supplying service dogs for years. Many detection agencies come to us for training.
Our dogs are trained using positive reward methods that guarantee their reliable performance.
Similar to an athlete, a drug-dog requires continued maintenance, training and conditioning. Once certified, our dogs receive daily training to maintain their skill levels.
Are there other testing methods?
Yes, there are many different methods of getting drug usage results:
- Blood testing
- Urine sample testing
- Hair follicle analysis
- Detection dog search
Using a detection dog is non-invasive, non-confrontational, and does not have to be known to the rest of the family (in the event that the dwelling is clean from narcotics).
Are there specific hiding spots that children, students, or employees use to hide their drugs?
Yes, there are many different locations in your home, work, and schools that users have learned to hide their 'stash'. However, it is not recommended that you try to figure out where the drugs might be, since these hiding spots change fairly often. There are also many internet resources that cater to drug use, and actually sell drug storing devices that keep the drugs in plain sight (such as fake light bulbs and power receptacles). Lots of "head-shops" also carry paraphernalia that is designed to store contraband. It is simply too hard to try to figure out where the next hiding place might be. A rule to remember is that drugs are never too far from the users.
A good search dog will scent out the presence of drugs without discrimination of location.
Is addiction a matter of willpower?
Prolonged exposure to drugs alters the brain in ways that result in powerful cravings and a compulsion to use. These brain changes make it extremely difficult to quit by sheer force of will.
NO, addiction is NOT simply a matter of willpower.
Can you force someone into treatment?
Treatment does not have to be voluntary to be successful. According to drug treatment experts, people who are pressured into treatment by their family, school, employer, or the legal system are just as likely to benefit as those who choose to enter treatment on their own. As they sober up and their thinking clears, many formerly resistant addicts decide they want to change.
Is addiction a disease?
Most experts agree that addiction is a brain disease, but that does not mean that you are a helpless victim. The brain changes associated with addiction can be treated and reversed through therapy, medication, exercise, and many other complex treatments.
Does an addict have to hit rock bottom before they can get better?
NO, absolutely NOT. Recovery can begin at any point in the addiction process; the earlier, the better. The longer drug abuse continues, the stronger the addiction becomes and the harder it is to treat. Do not wait to intervene until the addict has lost it all, as brain damage is permanent and irreversible.
What are K9 University's detection certifications?
We are licensed through the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs agency (OBNDD); we're also listed with Dun and Bradstreet. We have a DUNNS' certification number, Cage code, and NAICS codes.
Upon request, we will make our certifications available to our clients:
Can you recommend drug resources?
Yes, there are so many excellent drug resources available in the country; however, we have just listed our recommendations.
Can a school receive government help to administer a drug-dog sniffing program?
Yes, in some cases. A school may qualify for Federal Grant funding to ensure the safety of their students. It is important that you seek this information out, as in some cases it may save the district precious financial resources. It is important to apply early in the Federal budgeting cycle, as there is much demand for these funds.
