MSA Security Canine Detection Teams consistently meet the highest certification standards that are specific and unique to multiple government agency clients.
Using live explosives during imprinting and training is the single most effective way of teaching canines to sniff out today's threats.
The MSA Canine Detection Program imprints on all five families of explosives and HMEs with a strong commitment to counter contamination.
All Canine Detection Teams are trained solely for explosive detection work to ensure peak olfactory conditioning and single-handler teams enhance the working bond.
MSA's Canine Detection teams are a rare combination of experienced bomb technicians, dog training professionals and an industry-recognized forensic explosives chemist.
MSA's comprehensive operational training phase focuses on specialty modules that directly reflect specific field utilization.
MSA voluntarily administers the Department of Justice National Odor Recognition Test (DOJ NORT) and provides ongoing training for EDC teams including explosive identification classes to address the evolution of HMEs.
MSA’s Explosive Detection Canine services are Department of Homeland Security (DHS) SAFETY Act designated. This provides clients with catastrophic liability protection in the
event a terrorist incident occurs while MSA’s Canine Detection Teams are deployed.
World-class bomb dogs aren’t born, they’re made.
From our canines to our handlers to our training facilities, MSA consistently meets the highest level of performance standards. As a result, you’ll find MSA Canine Detection Teams deployed in some of the world’s most targeted areas.
When it comes to bomb dogs, not all breeds are the same. MSA dogs are carefully-vetted sporting breeds, selected for their keen sense of smell, drive, intelligence, stable temperament and eagerness to please. By selecting only the best of the best, MSA canines have longer and more successful explosive detecting careers.
MSA’s full-time team of EDC handlers carries both military and law enforcement backgrounds. Before they begin working with MSA dogs, they undergo extensive training in Explosive Detection, Counter Surveillance and Behavior Pattern Recognition. They receive continuing education and training to successfully address the ever-evolving threat of IEDs.
