  1. 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.
  2. Good characteristics. It’s easier if the dog is eager to learn, intelligent, energetic, and most importantly, friendly.
  3. 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!
