Special K-9s can provide expertise in the location of human remains and evidence. We are skilled in crime scene preservation. Our cadaver/forensic canines are trained to locate and alert on the scent of human decomposition: tissue, blood, bones etc. These dogs are trained not to alert on animal remains, only human remains.
