Samaritan Detection Dogs 

We can provide handler/canine teams trained to locate historical human remains, adding another layer of confidence to your archaeology surveys

Our canines are trained to recognize the full spectrum of human decomposition odor; from a few days ago to a few decades ago, to abandoned pioneer graves in the mid-1800's, to native-American burial mounds which may be hundreds or thousands of years old.


It's not magic - scientific research on the decomposition of the human body points to a number of organic and inorganic compounds that remain in the soil long after the body has skeletonized. 


Our detection capabilities take less time than traditional Phase 1 methods and can verify the presence or absence of human remains, adding another layer of confidence to your surveysThink of it as a pedestrian survey with a hunting dog; a hunting dog that's sniffing for graves that may be right under your feet. Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they aren't there.


Our handler/canine teams are non-invasive and non-destructive. Depending on the weather conditions, the ground cover, and the terrain, we can effectively and efficiently cover a few acres in less than an hour, and considerably more in less than a day.
