Arbus is a beagle with a little touch of basset hound. He is specially trained to detect the presence of odor from even a single bed bug, or viable eggs. With over 200 million scent receptors, this hound can see with his nose what is invisible to the human eye even on close professional inspection.
Arbus will pinpoint the exact location of bed bugs, but will ignore dead bugs or skin casts. Human inspectors can never be sure if visible indicators remain from a resolved infestation. Arbus is particularly qualified to let you know if a problem persists or if you are in the clear.
Rescued from a shelter, Arbus received intense training from the internationally recognized J&K Academy. He is certified to work with his handlers by the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association (NESDCA), an independent certification agency that uses the same stringent criteria applied to law enforcement and bomb detection canines.
Arbus loves his job and trains hard every day to maintain his distinguished scent skills. If you fear you have a bed bug issue or may be at risk for one, Arbus is your dog.
