KYK9 Scent for Safety™ Program:
Pre-collect and store a person's unique scent. If person goes missing, search dogs can use collected scent to start searching immediately to find your loved one.
Quick, efficient K9 deployment increases chance of finding a missing or lost person unharmed.
This is only safety program that can reduce the length of time a person is missing.
The Program uses a proprietary forensic Scent for Safety™ Kit created by the KYK9 forensic team.
