The Difference in ACES Bed Bug Dogs
In addition to the training you receive, your ACES bed bug dog is going to be a toy trained canine, ready to work for you. The aspect of being toy driven, rather than a food driven dog, is a point of differentiation you will find with all of ACES’ bed bug dogs. Food driven dogs are the common way people train in today’s pest control industry, however, at ACES we believe you get better work from a dog that is not depending on working to be able to eat.
In food driven dogs, the handler leads the dog around the room, pointing out the various places for the dog to seek the presence of bed bugs. With an ACES lab, the dog does all the work – we train them to work on their own, not being led to the suspected areas and told where to search – it lowers the chances of missing live bed bugs.
Because of the way a food driven dog works, many times clients may think that the handler is simply leading the dog around – and this is actually pretty accurate. Food driven dogs only get to eat when they work, so they tend to be very hungry, and the effectiveness of their work depends almost fully on the skills of the handler knowing how to lead the dog around the room. If the handler misses a spot, so does the food driven bed bug dog – and this can leave you with problems.
ACES bed bug dogs will search a room by themselves, and the handler is there to help point out any missed areas. When the dog finds live bed bugs, it is rewarded with a toy – so their drive and ability to work is not hampered or affected by feelings of hunger.
The difference, and effectiveness in using toy drive training, is clear to see: check out Lucky happily going to work in this video. This is a bed bug dog that truly loves his work!
