We are saving lives at
both ends of the leash!

Sense Of Smell

A dog’s sense of smell is so keen and accurate that they can identify the chemical traces of cancer in the range of parts per trillion. (Equivalent to being able to detect a drop of blood in an Olympic sized swimming pool!) This means that a dog can detect the presence of cancer in humans

Cancer Detection

Imagine going to your doctor for your yearly check-up and simply breathing into a special tube to later be screened by a trained cancer detection dog. Your sample is analyzed for the presence of chemical traces of cancer.

Peace Of Mind

An accurate way to alert you of the possible presence of cancer early enough to help you and your doctor save your life and put your mind at ease.


A dog’s nose always knows that cancer stinks!

dogs cancerAny breed of dog can successfully be trained to “sniff” for cancer. We teach this highly effective skill by training dogs to identify a very distinctive scent, or biochemical marker,
that is emitted by the human body when cancer is present. A dog’s sense of smell is so keen and accurate the they detect the presence of cancer months before it will show up on any current medical test we have today.
