TORONTO - Purity Pest Control Limited and Common Scents Solutions introduced it’s newest four-legged employee, “Inspector Luke”, a pure fox red retriever acquired from Action Canine Institute, Manistee, Mich.

Luke has been teamed up with her new handler Angelique de Roode. Angelique and Luke are the third certified K-9 bed bug detection team employed by Purity Pest Control Limited.

“The response we have received has been overwhelming and we must look to the future if we are to keep up with the demand for K-9 bed bug inspections” said Michael Goldman, president of Purity Pest Control Ltd. and Common Scents Solutions, who now owns Kody, Alexa and Heidi, all of which are certified bed bug detection dogs. “The bed bug problem in North America is only going to get worse before it gets better.”

She was a K-9 officer with the Dutch military and has for the past 22 years been training dogs for bomb and drug detection as well as police patrol dogs.
