What services does 3DK9 provide?

3DK9 offers a variety of K9 Team narcotic and explosive services to fit the security needs of your specific facility or existing treatment program. We realize that each location, facility, and treatment program is different. Our expert leadership can advise and tailor working dog services to fit the needs of your specific organization.

Why should I use a private Drug Detecting Dog company over the Police?

The primary reason to use a private detection team is that you can only rely on a Police K-9 team if you receive a direct threat. Local police departments just don’t have enough resources to commit to the ever-increasing demands within the public domain; therefore, they cannot be proactive and attend the thousands of public events and venues unless they receive a credible threat.

How does 3DK9 keep the search findings confidential?

In all treatment facilities, safety is crucial to the success of the institution, and the discretion and confidentiality that 3DK9 provides is the ideal way to avoid any messy, unnecessary publicity. The results of our drug search are strictly for your treatment facility use only. We have no affiliation with law enforcement or any government organization.

What are the benefits of using drug dogs to search my facility when I have staff that can do it themselves?

All 3DK9 narcotic detection K9 teams are proven to effectively provide a versatile, efficient and real-time search and detection capability that can offer significant benefits to your treatment facility, including:

  • Detection of concealed drugs 100,000 times more effective than a human, cutting your search time by hours, allowing your staff to efficiently continue their day to day operations.  
  • Assist in the prevention and deterrence of drug abuse within your treatment facility, providing an additional piece of mind for all clients to ensure a safe and sober living environment throughout all stages of their sobriety for a continuous successful and sustainable recovery.
  • Potential for liability reduction associated with various offered treatment programs.


What narcotic substances are 3DK9 dogs able to detect?

All of our drug detecting K9’s is trained to find most illegal and legal narcotics, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine, meth, ecstasy, LSD, as well as commonly abused medications such as Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Xanax, Vicodin, as well as some over the counter medications.

What training is provided to the dogs to ensure a successful narcotic search in my facility?

At 3DK9, we take great care in training our canines and always treat every dog with respect and dignity. We believe K9 safety, security, comfort, and well-being are paramount. 3DK9 working dogs are trained using Operant Conditioning or positive reinforcement, where the dog is incentivized to perform during a simulated scenario. This method has been proven to be the most efficient training technique in the industry, ensuring peak performance in the field.

Where is it legal to use a dog drug search?

Virtually any place we are contracted to search. That includes homes, schools, businesses, event facilities, cars, boats, and airplanes.

What happens if a K9 finds drugs during the search?

When our dogs indicate a drug find, we mark the location and allow for the staff member to search the area. We will show you what and where the find was indicated. If the substance is not easily identified, our handlers have a drug pamphlet on hand to help identify the nature of the drug.

What frequency should I have my treatment center searched?

With all treatment centers, prevention is always key to ensure a safe and secure environment for all clients and staff. We suggest bi weekly or monthly K9 searches to successfully maintain the safety of your clients, visitors, and community members.

What if my facility has specific search requests?

At 3DK9, we strive to meet the needs of each individual client. Before your search, each client is given an option of how they would like the search to be conducted; whether you would like full discretion, or additional exposure for further deterrence, 3DK9 will follow all instructions given by our clients to ensure a successful client experience.  

How long does a search take?

This will depend on several factors. Factors that affect how long a search will take can include the size of the area to be searched, how many rooms, the type of contents in the area and if vehicles will be searched as well. A typical residential house with 2500 square feet or less takes approximately one hour.
