The Auburn University Canine Detection Training Center, part of the College of Veterinary Medicine, will hold a team graduation ceremony July 6 at 1 p.m. to honor handlers and dogs graduating from the Vapor Wake Detection training program. During the 13-week course handlers are paired with dogs bred and trained specifically for the program.
The ceremony will be held on the veterinary campus at 1120 Wire Road in the new Overton Educational Wing. Pete R. Garcia, division director of compliance programs within the Office of Security Operations at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is the keynote speaker.
Auburn’s Canine Detection Training Center is one of the largest canine detection training programs outside the federal government. Established in 1989, the Canine Detection Research Institute has over 20 years of directed research activities encompassing canine detection and the process of canine olfaction.
