- Hunting breeds. A good trainer can train any breed of dog, but one of the best bed bug detectors are hunters like labs, border collies, beagles and other combinations of this breed.
- Good characteristics. It’s easier if the dog is eager to learn, intelligent, energetic, and most importantly, friendly.
- Age. The best time to train a dog to detect bed bugs is from 10 months to 3 years of age, plus, that means they can work for almost a decade if they start that young!
