Interview about working with Ebony the Mold Detection Dog
Our beloved Ebony the mold dog passed away. She spent over 1000 hours of training from the Florida Canine Academy near Tampa, Florida. She performed over 1500 mold inspections since she began her career. Her training helped aide our Council Certified Residential Microbial Inspectors (CRMI) in locating and confirming mold growth in the indoor environment.
Ebony was a very special dog for many reasons. First off she was a terrific family pet. She was loyal to a fault and she loved every member of our family. She was more than just a pet however, she was my friend and my partner for 12 years. She was a fighter. That fact was never more evident to me than it was after she fought toe cancer and won the battle. She had to have a toe removed but that never slowed her down. Over the years that we were together I developed a very deep admiration for her. I think it was even stronger because I knew that she helped me every day to make a living and provide for my family. What an amazing experience to have worked with such a great dog.
Ebony the Mold Dog accomplished so much in her lifetime. She traveled, she was written about in a book called Dogs of Courage by Lisa Rogak but most of all she helped hundreds of people by identifying problem areas of mold growth in their indoor environments. Since her passing I have grown to appreciate her even more. I am thankful for the many memories and the joy that she brought to our lives. She may be gone but she will never be forgotten.
Ivory the Mold Dog is an 8 year old Standard Schnauzer. She completed over 1000 hours of training at the Florida Canine Academy near Clearwater, Florida. She was trained by Master Dog Trainer Bill Whitstine to detect 18 different types of molds that are most commonly found in indoor environments.
Ivory the Mold Detection Dog performs hundreds of mold inspections every year. She has a remarkable ability to detect mold growth and loves working and helping people with their mold related issues.
Panda the Mold Dog is the newest member of our family. Panda is a one year old Toy Schnauzer. She is a total bundle of energy and loves to interact with people. It is hard to believe that much energy can be stored up in such a small package. Panda is a very smart puppy. She loves learning new things and is very quick to learn new tricks. She will be attending the Florida Canine Academy near Clearwater, Florida later this year. She will be being trained by Master Dog Trainer Bill Whitstine and will undergo over 1000 hours of Mold Detection Dog training. Once her training is complete we will start the transition of having her perform field work with our mold inspection team. We are excited to have Panda as a family pet and even more excited to see her utilize her energy, love for people and intelligence as a Mold Detection Dog.
