Cali and Asher came to me from Arkansas via California where they lived, trained and worked since they were puppies as bed bug scent detection dogs. They have been certified as such since their careers began. They have been hunting down bed bugs all over Alberta since September 2013.
California “Cali” is a 6-year-old blonde 20 pound (mini) Labradoodle. She likes long walks in the river valley and LOVES to hunt. Asher is a 4-year-old black with white markings 35 pound (mini) Labradoodle. He. Loves. Fetch.
Cali and Asher are both toy-reward trained, the fun of the “work” comes from the reward playing fetch/tug of war with a ball/toy.
Our K9s are dependably accurate and very rarely false alert - all alerts must be verified by handler.
These dogs are smart, so focused yet playful and they love their job. Nevertheless, they are different in personality and attitude. It is my responsibility, as their handler, to read them, train them and make sure they are happy doing their job to the best of their abilities, which, incidentally, are mind-blowing.
Both K9s are hypoallergenic, fixed and very polite. They are groomed and bathed regularly with nails trimmed. They go for regular vet checkups and are current with all their shots.

Concerned you may be affected? ... We encourage a pro-active approach to prevention, ultimately saving you money.
Seek and Find Experts Inc (SAFE) is an innovative and growth-oriented company specializing in the use of canines for the detection, and proactive prevention of bed bugs and narcotics. We have been certified for access to restricted camps, OSSA, and CSTS with all drug and alcohol testing having been completed. Our dogs and handlers are all certified and have experience working in remote workforce accommodations in Northern Alberta.
Our goal is to work closely with our clients to customize a program to detect, prevent and deter specified pests, and/or illicit drugs.
Bed bugs: the preferred approach to this potential problem is an assertive and proactive approach of using canines for early detection. The practice of continuously inspecting rooms is the only safe way to ensure these pests are found prior to spreading, become a costly problem and even damaging a reputation. If bugs are found, the canine can quickly identify how far the problem has spread to adjoining rooms, hallways, common rooms etc. This preemptive practice will save not only time, but also the cost of treating areas that have not been affected. Once the specific area has been treated, the canines return to ensure the insects have been eradicated. Bed bugs are resilient and can travel quickly; it is important to ensure that there are no survivors.
Narcotics: canine narcotics detection is a straightforward practice. SAFE can customize any program designed to detect, deter, or a combination of both. This can be done for guests’ rooms and common areas, staff rooms and common areas or both. A detection strategy can be deployed throughout any part of a facility (guest rooms, common areas, etc) and can focus on inbound guests and luggage or staff. Once the goal of the search has been identified we can develop a schedule that is highly visible (having a deterring affect) or is discreet (ideal for covert detection), depending on individual client needs. SAFE has been working with Northern Alberta lodges/camps since June 2013 with our detection dogs. From the outset, we have worked closely with their directors and staff to develop a schedule, price and an education program. The purpose of the education program is to inform and empower the on-site staff to enable their role in the lodges/camp’s effective and proactive approach.
SAFE is a company that sets itself apart with customized programs, competitive pricing and an emphasis on customer service. Identifying with and understanding our client’s needs is of utmost importance.
