"At cdi, we train Ireland’s best conservation dogs. We do it to protect Ireland’s native wildlife, the dogs do it to hang out with us - and for the love of a tennis ball.
Our dogs are fast, portable, and endlessly trainable. They are a cost-effective, highly sensitive and non-invasive way to detect protected and invasive species, and wildlife disease. At present, they can be trained to detect plants, animals and illness.
Conservation dogs generally find targets up to 40 times faster than is possible with any other method. They give results instantly, with near-perfect accuracy. They can search for multiple targets simultaneously, with no reduction in efficacy."
