"Police dogs on the front lines of fight against fentanyl"
David Burke · CBC News October 18, 2017
Jake is a Labrador retriever and uses his powerful sense of smell to hunt down illegal drugs.
Calgary Police services 2017 Calendar in January 2017 features Trailrunners Sully. Sully has done essential police work in both Alberta and Saskatchewan and was Western Canada's first Cadaver detection dog. He works to find missing person remains and helps solve crimes by finding the evidence (however gruesome) needed. His age, still in service at 9, shows the excellent health and soundness of Trailrunners Working Labrador Retrievers. His success rate in "finds" shows the excellence in ability bred into these dogs.
Trailrunner’s Labradors and trainers have been involved in research under a major medical foundation and University of Calgary research team. This multi-year endeavor saw Trailrunners trainers travel to Japan and England to learn from the best in the world, as well as visits to Trailrunners from overseas trainers and doctors to evaluate and test our dogs. This video clip from a TV show reveals a bit about how the training worked and what the dogs were doing to detect cancer in “patient breath samples.

Trailrunners Labs as cancer detecting canines >> www.cancerdogs.com
Chris and Fran were on a Japanese television program in 2011 about our cancer detecting dog training and association with Japanese trainer and cancer researchers. The dog in the second screenshot (Marine) was actually CLONED! She was such an excellent cancer detection dog they wanted a duplicate !!!! We had the chance to work with her (and "her clone" offspring Esper) who is identical in looks and ability to MARINE!" Later we had the Clone's brother (Cruise) work alongside our dogs in Canada. To learn more about our involvement with cancer detection using Trailrunners Labs, (on another TV show in ENGLISH) see our website http://cancerdogs.com/wp/. It's easy to see why at Trailrunners we have a passion to keep the working dog bloodlines strong. We are no longer involved in the very time intensive work of cancer detecting dogs. In addition to continuing breeding working Labrador Retrievers, we are focusing on other aspects of the working and companion dog world, including the growing field of service dog work.
We train ALL BREEDS for all issues including aggression, anxiety, "hyperness", and general disobedience.
Your dog gets expert training, and once the training is complete, we then teach the dog owner how to handle their "new" highly trained dog.
