On March 20, 21 & 22, 2015 Green Dog Pest Service hosted our second annual World Detector Dog Organization certification testing and Handler's Clinic. WDDO Master Trainer, David Latimer presented us with an outstanding and informative handler's seminar and worked with us to push our dogs to their fullest potential.
Green Dog Pest Service was able to certify two new teams! Sadie, a 3-year-old Plott Hound who was adopted from the Southern California based rescue organization, Retrievers and Friends (http://www.retrieversandfriends.com) passed on her very first attempt! Sadie is going to be an outstanding addition to our team.
Hunter has also joined the Green Dog team by passing his certification test! He is an American Brittany, just shy of 10-months-old. Hunter is a pleasure to work and he loves everyone. He'll be on inspections today!
Over the 3 days of testing a total of 14 teams passed the extremely difficult double-blind test. To learn more about the requirements of WDDO, the independent third-party organization who conducted the testing please visit their website: www.wddo.org.
Green Dog Pest Service would like to thank all the handler's and companies who spent the time and money to attend. We strongly believe in annual, independent, double-blind testing and only putting out teams that can truly find bed bugs and do it in a professional manner. Networking with other professional K-9 teams who believe in the same high standards as we do makes this event even more enjoyable! We look forward to making this event bigger and better in 2016!
