Trained Dogs for Bedbug Detection
Most of our clients suspect they have a problem with bed bugs, but are not certain. Before calling an exterminator, make sure there really is an infestation, and know exactly where the bed bugs are hiding.
Harlem River Hounds dogs are highly trained NESDCA certified working dogs — and part of the Pepe Dog network trained using the same protocols that law enforcement uses to train narcotic, explosive, tracking & search and rescue dogs. Our bedbug dogs come from what is considered the “Gold Standard” bedbug dog training academy and they go through a well defined and scientifically documented effective program to ensure the highest efficacy.
Harlem River Hounds uses Pepe dogs trained exclusively by J & K Canine Academy, a NESDCA certified facility. Harlem River Hounds dogs are recognized as the “Gold Standard” in the entomology canine detection field and have gone through the only bedbug training program in the world with scientifically proven results. Our dogs meet the highest industry training standards.
The bedbug epidemic has generated fear and anxiety throughout the country. Harlem River Hounds is answering the call to arms with the most highly trained bedbug scent detection canine-handler teams in the industry. Our dog-handler teams are all certified by NESDCA, the only organization with the scientific testing and proven results in bedbug scent detection. Without NESDCA certification other companies lack the credentials and science needed to claim expertise.
Bedbugs may run but they cannot hide from our highly trained bed bug dogs.

Our highly trained bedbug scent detection dogs are capable of finding a single live bedbug and bedbug eggs. We want you to sleep in peace knowing that there are no bedbugs.
Bedbugs are notorious hitchhikers. People are on the go and so are bedbugs. They get into your home in a variety of ways including while traveling for business or for pleasure, to and from college, sleep away camp, having guests stay with you who unknowingly bring them in, repurposing furniture…you get the idea. They are inadvertently brought into your home attached to your clothing, in luggage, in furniture, or other personal items. Regardless of how they come in, they are difficult to spot at first and they quickly set up residence – in your residence.
If you are suspicious that you may have a bedbug probem, don’t wait until you have an infestation. They are not always visible to the human eye. If bedbugs are there, one of our NESDCA certified dog teams can locate them quickly and accurately. It is the most efficient and economical way to get instant peace of mind.

A bedbug infestation can be extremely costly. Bedbug extermination costs are very high and the damage to your business brand can be devastating. Either way, bedbugs affect your bottom line!
HOTELS AND HOSPITALITY
In this industry time and money involved when forced to take bedbug affected and surrounding areas offline results in lost revenue. Bedbug treatment costs are extremely expensive. Comps paid to customers are costly and the damage to your business brand via blogs and word of mouth is almost impossible to undo.
Don’t let your customers be the ones to alert you to a bedbug problem. Routine preemptive bedbug searches in your hotel are key to refuting or verifying customer complaints…usually before checkout. Routine searches provide your customers with peace of mind regarding the quality services your hotel provides. Be proactive not reactive!
Our bedbug detection teams give your business a true picture of what is going on behind the visible scene. Harlem River Hounds helps keep extermination costs down while helping you realize an overall ROI.
Routine baseline searches in your properties are essential to attracting and maintaining a strong tenant base. Protect your business from the potential legal and financial burden of a bedbug infestation. Baseline and preemptive bedbug searches are a strategic way to keep your property running smoothly and free from bedbug infestation. Residential sweeps can be done before leases are signed and a tenant takes occupancy to protect both landlord and tenant. Commercial spaces with many people coming and going benefit from knowing about a bedbug problem before a potential infestation occurs.
Proactive bedbug searches can locate bedbugs before the problem becomes a widespread infestation – reducing the likelihood of subsequent treatment and legal costs.
PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS
Hospitals, colleges, schools, daycare centers, assisted living centers, camps and other similar facilities usually become aware of a bedbug problem after the problem has become an infestation. There is often no avoiding a potential bedbug infestation with people coming and going on a constant basis.
The well being of your clients and staff depend on a preventative bedbug approach.
