Annie is our bedbug sniffing dog and is trained to quickly identify bed bugs. She is 3 years old and a NKC brown brindle mountain feist. She was born in Tennessee and trained at Ironheart Training Center in Kansas.
The best way to prevent bed bug outbreaks and spreading infestations is by performing routine proactive Canine inspections. Our inspections are highly accurate, fast and significantly less invasive then visual inspections. Human inspections, even when performed by highly trained professionals can only detect an infestation after taking a room apart piece by piece, Canine inspections leave a room intact. By using their sense of smell a dog can detect bed bugs even if they're hiding inside places that can't be seen without breaking or ripping them to gain access. The human eye cannot see inside a mattress, behind an outlet or anywhere that is not exposed. This makes our inspections significantly more thorough, more efficient and less invasive.
