Owner and CEO Pepe Peruyero

“In 1998 I was asked to train a termite detection canine by a local pest-control company. I quickly realized that the training methods being used, which are still being utilized today could not reach the level of proficiency and accuracy to satisfy the scientific researchers.  As a result I developed a proprietary method that has consistently proven to produce dogs with high level of accuracy, low levels of false indication regardless of their breed or target odor.  This training methodology simplifies the learning process for the dog allowing them to develop the skills as needed in a positive self discovery environment, thus reducing the levels of stress commonly reached during standard cognitive shaping and recognition training.  It also removes a significant part of the human element during deployment, which in our experience is the most negatively impacting factor  of a canine team.  Since that time this program has been tested thoroughly by the University of Florida during two scientific papers and the USDA in the most recent research involving the detection of canker in orange groves. During this application canines were deployed from a vehicle and allowed to work autonomously in a grove while searching for the citrus disease that in some cases resulted in the identification of lesions as small as a pinhead on a leaf 14 feet high in a tree.  Imagine this same application in any urban area where a vehicle with a canine handler and his dog arrive to a potential IED or HME on the road.”
