CPCA Trials - Detector Dogs

During the CPCA trials four separate search scenarios are set up for the dogs. This ensures the winner of the trials has consistently performed well on all four scenarios. During the competition both specialty dogs as well as general service dogs with a detection profile compete against each other. Both Explosive detector dogs and Drug detector dogs are scored in the same event to increase the amount of teams competing.
At the 2013 CPCA Trials that were held in Saanich, British Columbia, the TOP DETECTOR Dog award was Awarded to Toban Tisdale and "Holly" from the Canada Border Services for the 3rd year in a row.
