Why is a detection dog so efficient?
Man’s best friend at your service!
Dogs have a very developed sense of smell, and are able to isolate (to discriminate) particular odors (as weak as 1 part by trillion) from others. This sense allows them not only to detect the presence of a target odor but also to determine exactly where it is located.
The dog is an effective and reliable detector of smell which exceeds very often the highest technologies invented by man. Dogs are also ecological and less expensive than the repetitive use of chemicals.
Why choose PK-9 dogs?

Besides the numerous hours of training, hours made in inspection, our dogs receive additional daily training; ensuring they are in touch with bed bugs every day. As the bed bugs have a particular smell, they are easily located, quickly and effectively, by our detection dogs.
Rate of success for a unit diagnostic: 95%
PK-9 inspection dogs are far quicker than a human. Within one hour, a dog can inspect:
- 30 rooms plus in a hotel, hospital or studio or;
- 16 to 22, 3 ½ – 4 ½ apartments, or;
- 3000 to 4000 sq ft office spaces
It would take about 25 people to achieve these same results, with an efficiency rate of just 35%.
The PK-9 team routinely have two dogs to do an inspection. Residential customers always benefit from this double verification. For commercial sectors, our dogs are used in alternation to ensure each dog discreetly inspects the premises. The second dog is brought in to verify positive findings.
Prevention is the best way to avoid bed bugs infestations. When an inspection is completed by a detection dog, clients get immediate confirmation if their premises are clear, or precise information on locations of bed bugs should they be found.
Prevention is always better than the cure. Our PK-9 Detection Dogs ensure you rest with peace of mind.
