...lab results from both indications returned positive for accelerants.

Our Accelerant Detection Beagles have a phenomenal sense of smell.  Trained by Dale Stavroff, Owner/Master Trainer at Precision Dogs, our ADK9‘s work meticulously to detect liquid accelerants and indicate evidence not always visible to the eye or evident from burn patterns.

Their talent helps investigators confirm the presence (or absence) of liquid accelerants and pinpoint the location, ensuring a significantly higher percentage of positive results with fewer samples sent to the lab.

They readily detect:  Petroleum Distillates, Naphthenic Products, Medium Isoparaffinic Products, Vehicle Fuels & more.
