In addition, 52 percent teens surveyed said there are places in or near their school where teens can drink, smoke, or use drugs during the school day.

What To Expect

The Contract
Before the search begins, we will have an initial consultation with the Principal or administrator discussing the details of the search: areas, time frame, frequency, etc. Once details have been discussed each client must sign a contract that outlines the details of the process, expectations and confidentiality. Most searches are conducted before or after lunch or while students are in classes or out of the building. This minimizes distractions during the search.
The Walk Through
Upon our arrival the handler will meet with the contact person to review details of the search and discuss any additional questions or concerns about the search process. They will then start a walk-through overview, where the handler only and the contact person will walk the property discussing the search areas. Our goal is to make sure everyone understands the process prior to starting.
The Search
Once the search begins, the dog, along with their handler, is taken from room-to-room covering discuss areas. If the dog picks up a scent, the dog will passively alert the handler of the spot. The handler will then mark the spot for further testing/searching.  The search will continue until all agreed areas are searched. Our trained dog can pick up the scent of marijuana, fentanyl, cocaine and its derivatives, heroin, and methamphetamines.
The Wrap Up
Before the exiting the property, the handler will review any of the spots the dog had marked during the search. If drugs are found, it is up to the client to dispose of them. Handlers are not allowed to take the drugs with them under any circumstances. If necessary, we offer drug identification guides and drug testing kits onsite for purchase so clients can verify substance. We can also provide contact information for local rehab facilities.
