Currency Detector Dog

Another aspect of the specialist trained dog is its ability to search for and locate currency.

Currency detector dogs are trained to give a passive or pro-active indication to the location of currency. The monetary value of the currency is not a motivating or limiting factor in the adroitness of the dog. Dogs used for currency detection are introduced to the target odour. There are an established number of ways to introduce dogs to the identity of ink used in the printing of currency notes.

Karenswood (International) Ltd validated studies regarding the ability of the dog to detect and identify many different odiferous signatures. The dog has the ability to locate a particular target odour whilst simultaneously ignoring intrusive non-targeted odours.
