Bomb Threat Management

DDA detection services are about searching for a given target odour. We offer a cost effective service in carrying out the search for a target odour.

There are many ways in which people and dogs are similar, but an area in which dogs are much superior is in their olfactory ability, or their sense of smell. Dogs can smell 100,000 times better than humans. In tests, dogs have been able to detect a chemical in a solution diluted to 1 to 2 parts per trillion.

The human brain has a large area devoted to vision, while dogs have a large portion dedicated to olfaction, in fact, 40% more of a dog’s brain than a human’s is committed to smell. The average person has 5 million smell receptors, while the average dog, depending on breed, has 125 to 250 million smell receptors. The Bloodhound has an incredible 300 million smell receptors! Dogs can smell things up to 40 feet underground. Dogs can even smell human fingerprints that are a week old!

Some of the more unusual target odours we train and search for are: Truffles’, Termites, Bed bugs, Scat, Keys, Telephones, Lost pets, Cadaver (dead bodies or body parts), Skin cancer, Fruit, Reptiles, and so on. So if you have a particular item you want to find give us a call today and we will start training on your target odour.
