Canine scent detection is a proven and critical asset in today's society. From detecting human illnesses, aiding search and rescue efforts, sniffing out invasives, or assisting law enforcement, the canine nose is an invaluable tool.

 

The MCDI canines are experts in scent detection for environmental science and conservation efforts and can learn any detectable scent in as little as a few hours. Our dogs have the ability to learn over 20 target odors and can detect multiple scents simultaneously. Canine scent detection is a non-invasive method of data collection that is typically be less labor intensive and more reliable than traditional methods.
