How To Get the Best Results From an Accelerant-Detection Canine Team. A Pocket Guide To Evidence Collection. pp. 16-17.

Abstract: The article is a short summary of reminders to an investigator when using a canine team. A canine handler should always be informed of any hazardous chemicals (i.e. insecticides, chlorine, etc.) that may be in the building. The investigator should keep track of any tools used requiring gasoline (i.e. an electric saw or a generator) and advise the canine handler where they were used and set down.

Collapsed walls or ceiling structures must be cleared to allow the canine team access to the area. Removal of sharp objects is necessary because they present a threat to the dogs. Drywall, plaster, and other ceiling finishing materials provide excellent samples and should be left for canine examination.
