Auburn University Researching and Training Vapor Wake Dogs
Vapor Wake dogs are the elite of bomb sniffing dogs.
They are specifically trained to detect body worn explosives on a moving target.
These dogs are trained right here at Auburn University.
But, there’s a lot that goes into creating the perfect Vapor Wake dog from a puppy to an adult. And that includes their genetic makeup.
We talk with Auburn University researchers who study the puppies to determine which ones might perform best to detect explosives.
And then we talk to the head K9 trainer about the extensive training and what it takes to be one.
