"When I was given the task of finding a dog provider for our nation wide K9 
Assisted Bed Bug Inspection program, I wanted to find someone that would be
there through all aspects of the program. The Bed Bug K-9s team helped with
everything from the training of the dogs, handler interviews, handler training
and continuing education. Stephanie and the team were able to provide us with a
personalized experience that fit perfectly for our company. I would recommend
Bed Bug K-9s to anyone looking for a dog provider."
