A Peanut Detector Dog is a valuable tool for a person with an allergy to peanuts. Since a dog’s sense of smell far surpasses that of humans, detection of odors is a perfect job for these dogs. Our Peanut Dogs, undergo extensive training, are easily able to detect minute quantities of peanuts in any form; raw, cooked, oil, butter, dust, etc.

The Peanut Dog, although a pioneer, has already proven to be an incomparable and diligent assistant, devoted to preventing contact with peanut residue and thereby, a severe allergic reaction.

Trainee candidates are carefully selected, tested and screened for temperament and characteristics that will allow them to be both a working dog and a family companion.

The breeds of dogs most commonly used for peanut detection are Poodles, Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds, as well as dogs of mixed breeds. Poodles can often be owned by people whom otherwise cannot have a dog, as they do not shed and are relatively dander free.
