Comments in Response to TSWG Report T-3388
Entered October 2007/
After over two years of diligent effort and deliberations, the Scientific
Working Group on Dog and Orthogonal detector Guidelines, otherwise known as
SWGDOG, has published a series
of guidelines, which include a book of definitions that unifies terminology
commonly used within the detector-K9 working dog community, and definitive
guidelines for detector-K9 training, certification, and maintenance.
SWGDOG is a forum aimed at
addressing the broadly expressed need to improve the performance, reliability,
and courtroom defensibility of detector dog teams. It is also charged with
recommending best approaches to the use of detector dogs in conjunction with
electronic detection devices, or so-called orthogonal detectors.
