Arson Dogs: The State Farm Arson Dog Program & 2014 Hero Dog Award finalists for the Arson Dog category K-9 Amber and trainer/handler Nicole Dyer. Heather Paul joined State Farm in 2001 and manages the State Farm Arson Dog Program, a program that trains accelerant detection dogs and handlers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Arson dogs are trained to sniff out minute traces of accelerants (gasoline, lighter fluid, etc.) that may have been used to start a fire. An arson dogs’ nose can smell in parts per quintillion – more than 100 times better than a human nose. Arson dogs are trained to sniff out more than 60 different ignitable petroleum based hydrocarbons. 2014 Hero Dog Award finalist for the Arson Dog category; K-9 Amber and her partner will also be on with us to share each of their amazing stories that made them heroes!
