Bomb Dogs

The IronHeart Training Center prides itself in producing some of the finest explosive detector dog teams in the world. The staff at IronHeart pride themselves in selling bomb dogs that exceed industry standards. 

Objectives related to tactics, directional obedience, people borne, and low threshold objectives set our bomb dog teams apart from the rest.

A bomb dog must be the finest working dog in existence due to the safety of the public for which they serve. -Matt Skogen 

Numerous federal, state, local law enforcement, and private companies are enjoying the benefits of a quality dog and a quality handler course from the IronHeart Training Center. All of our dogs are extremely focused, intense and determined.

A quality explosives detector dog must be teamed with a quality handler course to ensure the proficiency and safety of the canine team and those that could be affected by deficiencies caused by a lack of training.

Quality bomb dog training should include training objectives accentuating the many differences between a bomb dog and any other detector dog. – Matt Skogen

It is very important each handler become familiar with the components of explosives, trends in explosives worldwide, and the individual composition of these explosives.

A bomb dog must be handled like a bomb dog and not a drug dog. It is imperative that each handler truly understand the operational differences that exist between other detector dog disciplines. We stress the prioritization of sweeps, a systematic, tactical approach that should be ingrained in each handler throughout the entire handler course.

The IronHeart Training Center uses several different training locations to ensure quality training and varying environments are experienced. Please contact us for more information about any of our dogs, training, or lodging options.
