Explosives Certification Test To The Evaluators

  1. During the test, only the handler/dog team and the evaluators will be allowed in the test area.
  2. In each of these searches, enticement articles such as balls, food, spoiled clothing, plastic baggies etc. will be used to thoroughly test the dog's ability.
  3. The dog must make the alert obvious to the evaluators and as close to the hides as possible.
  4. There will be a total of twenty (20) possible indications during this test. The dog must be able to locate at least nineteen (19) of the twenty odors.
  5. One false alert and/or any aggressive response will be evaluated as a failure to locate and will result in the failure of the entire explosive detection certification for that team. The k9 is allowed one missed odor per test. Any two (2) missed odors will result in a failure of the entire explosive certification.
