Our dogs can detect at the earliest introduction – way sooner than the naked eye. The chart shows how quickly a bed bug introduction can become a full-blown infestation. It also shows how few bed bugs there needs to be for our bed bug dogs to detect them. That can save you a lot of money in the long run. With recurring services, our canine teams can help identify new introductions before they turn into full-blown infestations, saving your brand and allowing for treatment early on in the infestation cycle.

Meet the Dogs

All of our dogs were rescued from kill shelters. These pups received 600 hours of training before entering into the field, and our handlers have extensive field experience working with and managing canine behavior under real-life working conditions and in many different environments. They also continue to train almost every day to keep their noses up to snuff. But they are more than that. They are our trusted employees, and we love them. Meet the dogs:

Raven

Raven has been with Western since 2017. Although she's small in stature, she has super high endurance and energy. Her favorite activity is wrestling with her best buds, Tess and Dixie.

Tess

Tess started with Western in 2015. She's actually a celebrity having rung the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Although she didn't enjoy the actual ringing of the bell.

Dixie

Dixie was hired in 2011 and retired in 2017. Her favorite treats are pizza crust and carrots. She knows it's all about balance. Nowadays, she enjoys catching up on her sleep.

Luke

Luke has been "working" for Western since 2016. He enjoys chasing his tail until he is so dizzy he walks into walls. We should all try it.

Fidget

Fidget was hired in 2018, and his favorite treat is crispy bacon. Fidget is all of us. He loves kids and other dogs but is NOT a fan of squirrels. He could use our exclusion services.

Lex

Lex has been with Western since 2018. When he's not sniffing out bed bugs, his favorite thing to do is swimming, but if you throw any type of ball… he's on it.
