Why should parents use this service?
Asking or confronting your child will only get you an excuse or a lie. The younger a child begins using drugs, the more difficult it is for them to stop. In today’s society, there is an almost lax attitude towards drug use. Many do not see it as dangerous. Statistics tell a very different story.  By using our service, you, as the parent, will be taking a pro-active stance rather than waiting for something dangerous to occur or have law enforcement involved.  The consequences of children doing drugs are very far-reaching, from physical danger to being arrested.  Needless to say, their schooling options, employment options and general future will be at risk as well.

What drugs can the Drug Dog Services, LLC detect?
Our Dogs can detect Heroin, Marijuana, Cocaine, Meth-amphetamines, Ecstasy, Oxycontin, and many derivatives like Opana.

I think my child may have only experimented with marijuana? Do I really need to go to this extreme?
The answer is yes. While many parents may remember smoking marijuana as youngsters themselves, the marijuana of “today” is much more potent. It is also known as the “gateway” drug and can lead to further and much more serious drug use.

Are there other individuals I need to consider?
Absolutely.  Should you have a care-giver or nanny whether they live in the household or not, you should know if drugs are being brought into your home. Your child(ren)’s friends is another concern.

Where are my kids getting drugs?
Drugs may be as close as your medicine cabinet. Many kids are using prescription and over the counter (OTC) drugs as they have a false sense of “safety” associated with a drug that is prescribed by a doctor and the fact that mom and dad use them.  60 % of kinds said that they have an awareness of drugs being present at their school.

My kid and I are best friends and talk about everything? Why do I need to worry?
If you child is using drugs with a perception that smoking marijuana is a harmless drug, they still wouldn’t share this with their parents. Kids will share many things, but almost never drug use.  Almost 20% of 10th graders have used illicit drugs within the past month (childstats.gov).
