Mobile Odor Detection Dog Certification

This DLE Mobile Odor Detection Dog Certification is a two (2) part certification designed to determine the proficiency and reliability of the dog team in the detection of explosives. The first part of the certification is the Odor Recognition Test. This test is designed to evaluate the canines’ ability to recognize the target odor and respond to the target odor and must be passed prior to moving onto the second part of the certification; the Practical Test. The Practical test will test the handler’s ability to recognize the canine’s response or non-responses in the search areas.

The purpose of this Test is the screening of people in an operational environment for the detection of hand carried and / or body worn explosives, otherwise referred to as “Mobile Odor Detection Dog”, M.O.D.D. This testing is to only test the proficiency of this specific type of canine utilization. Canines specifically trained in M.O.D.D. detection should only attempt this certification. The M.O.D.D. Test will be conducted in conjunction with an Odor Recognition test prior to the practical application.
