Training a drug dog, you would again, choose a dog who would make your job easier. A dog who’s very active, and interested and motivated, by food or toys, and willing to work with you. Then, you would work with scent training, to train your dog to discriminate a specific scent, and then work at targeting that scent, when they see it, in smaller and smaller quantities. This is a really great area to work with a professional.Drug dogs are generally strongly toy motivated, and are working for play with a specific item, in many cases, a towel.You can go and see drug dogs at work, in cities, at concerts,and airports, and places like that, so you get an idea of what it entails. .
