About Vapor Wake
Vapor Wake is the industry leader in weapons detection canine training. Our patented training methods produce K9 units that survey massive crowds with unrestricted movement, increasing security with minimal impact on the guest experience. A Vapor Wake K9 screens non-obtrusively by sampling the air around people. They are obedient to the odor itself, do not see people as searchable objects and follow explosive odors to their source. A Vapor Wake Labrador is scientifically bred by Auburn University and typically undergoes a Patented18 month environmental & detection training process, each step is deliberate and essential to achieving the results that earn the canine the coveted title of Vapor Wake® and be representative of the VWK9 team, that holds the highest industry standard of proficiency for body-worn explosive detection.
Our courses range in scope and specialty and allow handlers and their canine partner to receive the industry’s best training in narcotics detection, explosive detection, and more. Vapor Wake training courses are held regularly throughout the year and are open to all canine handlers, including police, search and rescue, military, and private security.
