Medical Detection Dogs

Early Alert Canines is honored to collaborate with the California Department of Public Health on an innovative pilot program aimed at training and deploying COVID-19 Medical Detection Dogs.


As part of this program, the goal was to demonstrate a canine's ability to detect potential COVID-19 infections with accuracy equal to or better than lab-based rapid tests, thereby reducing the burden on the testing system. COVID-19 Medical Detection Dogs are utilized as a screening tool, thereby exponentially screening more individuals than laboratory-based tests can within the same timeframe. 

As the program evolves, we are eager to proceed to the next phase of this program and explore the full potential of these Medical Detection Dogs in the fight against infectious diseases and the protection of our communities.

This independently funded program is currently focused on serving vulnerable populations like skilled nursing facilities and people with disabilities. The program provides effective surveillance and outbreak response at no cost to the facilities!
