SOKKS K9 Detection Training Aids
Questions and Answers
“Can a SOKKS™ dog still find large amounts of explosives and drugs? Why is that possible?”
SOKKS® dogs will find large quantities. Currently the largest find for an explosive K-9 trained on SOKKS® is over 500 pounds and up to 15 pounds of drugs. The reason is that the SOKKS® K-9 is trained to prosecute isolated molecules of the target odor, not the entire molecular scent spectrum of each individual explosive or drug. That means that even when there is a total presence of hundreds of pounds of substance, the actual portion of the target that exudes the PURE odor is usually less than half of the total substance. Since we are no longer forcing the K-9 to find all the odors of the target substance (including contaminants) the large quantity question becomes much less difficult to train for. SOKKS® K-9’s can be exposed to large quantities if you have the opportunity to do so.
“How many different odours are there?”
How many different SOKKS® odours are there?
There is a SOKKS-MPTS® training aid for the following odours: Drugs, Explosives, Currency, Arson, Cadaver, Bed Bug and Mold. Each SOKKS® Training Aid contains particles of the actual target odour. A proprietary product developed by the brilliant Prof.Dr. Wolf Kafka. You can have a special odour developed on request
“SOKKS® Drugs What odours are in a SOKKS® Drug Tube and what will my dog be able to find?”
SOKKS®-Drugs™ will condition the dog to find:
• Cocaine and Crack Cocaine
• Morphine and Opium Derivatives
• Hashish and Marijuana
• Amphetamine based drugs, LSD and Ecstasy
• Meth- and Crytalmethamphetime
It has also been proven successful on kronic
“SOKKS® Explosives – What odours is the dog trained to detect and what odours are in one SOKKS® tube?
SOKKS®-Explosives™ will condition the K-9 to find all military and commercial explosives. Dogs have been tested on:
• Hexogen (RDX)
• All Dynamites
• Various Watergels
• Oktogen (HMX)
• Smokeless Powder
• Various Chlorates
• Nitropenta (PETN)
• Nitro-Cellulose (NC)
• Handgrenades, weapons, artillery shells, etc. • and many more including TATP and HMTD
“How do I order SOKKS® and what do I get?”
SOKKS® comes in a bottle of 200 tubes. You order your required odour. For example if you order SOKKS® Explosives you will get 200 tubes which contains every odour to train dogs to detect Explosives listed here. This product has a 3 year shelf life if kept in ideal conditions and not contaminated. you can go here for pricing and ordering. We ship globally.”What are the storage requirements? Do I need a safe or a bunker”
If you have a dark and cool place, you can store SOKKS®. SOKKS® Tubes stored properly has a shelf life of 3 years. Training aids should be stored in the original container in a dark, cool place. SOKKS® should not be frozen, nor should it be exposed to bright light and high temperatures for long periods of time.
“Can I still train with conventional “real“ training aids or pseudo?”
“Real”, or conventional training aids, can be used for certification purposes. If the SOKKS® trained K-9 is repeatedly exposed to these old training aids, the dog will become conditioned to locate the inherent contaminants in these aids. There is no need for handlers to even have access to old training aids.
“But what about the DEA and ATF or other government regulations?”
The SOKKS® system is exempt from all DEA and ATF regulations for training aids. That means no investigations in case of loss, no logs to keep, no need to weigh training aids, no safes or bunkers, and no need for armed guards. No other real odour training system enjoys these exemptions.
“What if my dog swallows a SOKKS® tube training aid?”
A SOKKS® tube is completely non-toxic. It is absolutely safe for both the handler and the dog. If your dog swallows a training aid, he is still in some danger of intestinal injury and should be seen by a veterinarian. Normally it should pass without any trouble.
“How long does 1 SOKKS® Tube last”
Each SOKKS® tube can be used up to ten times, allowing you to do up to 2000 trials per bottle of SOKKS®. Once the training aid has been used ten times, it is replaced with a new aid. Having this many training aids per dog allows you to take obviously contaminated training aids out of service immediately and still be able to train without having to wait weeks for a replacement. This is keeping in mind that your tubes are kept in a reasonable condition.
“What is the cost for SOKKS™? What about technical support?”
SOKKS® is the most value for money method of training detector dogs on the market. The sets include all the material to allow you to start training immediately when you receive your training aids. We are committed to follow on support for its products and we are available via phone or email should you have any questions. SOKKS® does not require you to change the manner in which you train the K-9, it merely replaces the training aids. Detailed, easy to understand, user instructions are included with each set. Costs are on the website.
“What about legal issues? Will this be acceptable in court?”
SOKKS® K-9’s are trained on pure odour. We believe that in short order judicial notice will be taken of SOKKS®. Each dog can still be certified using current state standards by using real products. However, since SOKKS® uses the PURE ODOR of for example REAL DRUG all current court decisions regarding the validity of training with real substances still apply.
Before trying and purchasing any product – K9 Training Aids for Detection Dogs:
Despite the technology and knowledge available by human today, it’s still difficult to understand and analyze the olfactory capabilities of dogs because they are outside standards.
Field experience associated with science proved that: it’s not possible or serious to shape an operational detection dog without having real materials (explosives, drugs, blood, etc …) identical to those he will find during his career.
On this, the history and manufacture of SOKKS-MPTS® micro-particles are:
The German neuro-physicist, Prof. Wolf A.KAFKA, and colleagues, studied the different effective way in detection dogs services (explosives, drugs corpses, fire accelerators …). For each specialty, all materials that must be detected by dogs have been identified and studied in laboratory; to determine their chemical composition.
The SOKKS-MPTS® team has selected the fundamental particles that allow the dog to detect the material, and this regardless of their origin, age and molecules that are added or their associates (binders, phlegmatic etc.). The amount of particles was decisive for each product because the goal is to create dogs as odor source detectors. This means that when the dog locates a smell in the air, it goes back to the source that emanates continuously.
At this point, it remained to find the perfect tool to fix the micro-particles. The SOKKS-MPTS® tube was selected for:
- Composition: resistant, stable, pure and olfactory neutral
- Its cylindrical and flexible shape that permit circulation and distribution of microparticles in the air
- Small in size
This support also allows that only a tiny part of the tube is in contact with the surface on which it is placed, the effect is a non-contamination.
SOKKS-MPTS® is the best K9 detection training aid system. The SOKKS-MPTS® tube contains all the necessary micro-particles allowing simultaneous storage of all odors by specialty. It’s the ideal system to sustain your workouts. You have real micro-particles, NO PSEUDO, NO COPY OF ODORS, only real and pure molecules.
In everyday life, the work that follows becomes simply and logic: You juggle between your materials and your SOKKS-MPTS® that so the dog make a permanent brain gymnastic. This allows the dog to understand that SOKKS-MPTS® is the basis of information and this throughout his career.
The frequency presentation of your SOKKS-MPTS® and your materials just depend on the step of learning, experience and work rate of your dog. By doing this you increase of 30% olfactory abilities of the animal compared to any other conventional training system. You create dogs that have complete information that they need and particularly focused.
Other benefits of SOKKS-MPTS® are:
– The low cost,
– no regulatory constraints related to transportation and storage,
– The opportunity to work different dogs in a same training place by changing tubes positions with no contamination.
