Canine Detection Certification Council

Demands for conservation detection dogs are increasing so it is imperative to establish a minimum standard at which a detection dog is expected to deliver. 

The Canine Detection Certification Council has been created to establish a benchmark of a performance minimum so that government departments, private organisations, and handlers can be readily identified as being assessed and highly proficient in their target odour(s). 

By having a very high standard of control when the detection dog is working in the field increases efficiency but more importantly adds to the protection of our endangered species.     Get more info at here: CDCC 

Steve is one of several certified Assessors for the Canine Detection Certification Council.  The five videos below show a recent assessment Steve conducted for a new handler and dog. As long as your dog can perform the minimum assessments, it does not matter where your dog was trained.
