Bomb Dogs

Bomb Dogs

We provide realistic explosive detection training for both our dogs and our handlers.

At AMK9 we have a selection of thoroughly trained bomb dogs for sale. We put our bomb dogs through realistic explosive detection training using real explosive materials in training, not simulated scents. 

Each dog learns to detect the unique scent of different explosive materials. By the end of their training, bomb dogs are able to detect approximately 15 different combinations of explosive materials — in trace samples and in bulk samples.
As ‘passive-alert’ dogs, our bomb dogs learn to signal the presence of anything suspicious by assuming an unassisted ‘sit’ position near a suspected explosive device. During our explosive detection dog training, we painstakingly recreate the scenarios and situations bomb dogs are likely to encounter when they are working in the real world.

An AMK9 bomb detection dog will confidently work in any location, regardless of distractions, such as:

  • Airports and Public
  • Transportation Hubs
  • Ports of Call
  • College Campuses and Public Schools
  • Shopping Centers
  • Combat Zones
  • Large Event Venues

AMK9 bomb detection dogs are prepared for the job, and have been successfully put to the test throughout the nation, and across the globe.

Nationally Recognized Explosive Vendor

Tripwire Operations Group is our preferred vendor for Explosives Products & Training.


Because AMK9 is highly involved in explosives detection and risk mitigation, it made perfect sense to enlist the knowledge and experience of Ryan Morris and Tripwire Operations Group, LLC. Morris is nationally recognized for his explosives education and training, and has an immense understanding of both commercially produced and homemade explosives. Tripwire Operations Group is owned and operated by first responders including Police Bomb Technicians, Canine Handlers, Explosive Breachers, and SWAT and SRT Operators.


Technically speaking, Tripwire Operations Group is an ATF licensed importer, exporter, manufacturer, and dealer of explosive materials. However, if you asked them, they would say they are a group of “First Responders dedicated to First Responders”. They believe that “the most highly trained create a safer America”, and in response to that belief, they prepare military and first responders to protect our country and cities by providing unique products in training and services. Tripwire is rapidly expanding, alongside AMK9, in both government and commercial markets as a leading provider of training, security solutions, and explosive products.

VaporWake® Detection

VaporWake Detection Dog

Developed by Auburn University, Vapor Wake® Detection Canines (VWDC) are the latest technology in the global war on terror. VWDC are specifically trained to detect hand-carried and body-worn explosives on a moving target. Unlike traditional bomb detection dogs, trained to view static objects or people as their “productive area”, Vapor Wake® canines are obedient to the odor of the explosive material itself. This is what enables VWDC to consistently and effectively do what others cannot: follow an explosive target to its source in real time, while the target is in motion.


Vapor Wake® dogs can integrate directly into established security programs and enhance your current EDD team. Working seamlessly in large crowds, Vapor Wake® K9 Teams provide an additional level of security during high volume pedestrian flow events.
