Canine Person-borne Explosive Detection Training Guideline


This interactive tool is designed to allow federal, state, and local law enforcement units to uptrain their dogs on Person-borne Explosive Detection Training Guidelines (PBEDs). The main body of the guideline includes preparatory training to ready the canine for more complex tasks, a discussion of the methodology of the “scent cone,” and a progressive training program from static through dynamic training.

The PBED Guideline file comes in HTML format, including example videos and pictures, with no requirement for internet access. If you are interested in obtaining the PBED training guideline, please contact us at STK9@hq.dhs.gov.
