Starting the K-9 on the right scent is paramount to finding missing and endangered persons. Scent collection and preservation is often overlooked in the investigation of these life or death situations. Giving the first responders the right tools and training makes all the difference.”

“As any k9 handler can attest, one of the most important aspects to a successful trail is a good start. With the Find’em system, the k9 team is assured a viable  uncontaminated scent article to start the trail. The Find’em system also allows the the scent article to be picked up from the missing person’s residence and brought to another location without having to worry about cross contamination or getting the wrong scent article. This saves valuable time and allows the k9 team to get to work faster with a reliable scent article. With the Find’em system a key element of the “good start” is assured.”

“As a former K9 officer and trainer, I can’t stress enough the importance of an good start when time is of the essence and your deploying a K9 team to get the job done. There is no single better way to increase their chance of success, but to provide them with a uncontaminated scent article of the individual you want to find!”

“My name is Jim Pacetti. I have been a Police Officer for the past 24 years with a Sheriff’s Department in the Chicago Metropolitan area and a Canine handler for the past 17 years. I have been extremely privileged to travel throughout the county and receive some of the best canine training this field has to offer.

Reflecting back on the countless positive searches and finds my partners and I have done, is something I could never forget. However, the searches that have been performed with no success are the ones I try to learn from the most. One thing I can truly attest to is the importance of a good sound start using a scent article with a little contamination as possible.

Presenting a quality scent article to the K-9 is the foundation and core of any successful trail. Having the ability to present a quality scent article gives the K-9 team a higher percentage of accomplishing our goal, finding the person we are looking for and bringing them home. The Find’em Scent Kit is a tool that offers a K-9 team a chance to get that successful start when time is of the essence.”

“As an instructor with the National Police Bloodhound Association, and a member since 1995, I know and stress the importance of introducing a good scent article to your dog when minutes or even seconds count. This product helps the handler with that uncontaminated article to give his dog the best chance at a good start to a successful trail conclusion. It’s like a smoke detector. You don’t need it until you need it. Then it’s the best investment you ever made.”
