TORONTO (Reuters) - A Canadian couple has launched a business offering worried parents or concerned employers private drug-detection services that will search homes and offices for everything from marijuana to heroin.

Russ Rathy of Pense, Saskatchewan, started the home-based business, Crusader Resources, along with his wife, after buying a young German shepherd trained to sniff out drugs.

The dog, named Alis Vicona, cost C$20,000 ($16,000) and can detect drugs or the residue of drugs in buildings or on clothing, even after 30 days.

"If you suspect your kids of drug use, this is one way to make sure there's no drugs in the house," Russ Rathy, 39, told Reuters from his home near the western province's capital of Regina.

"Obviously it gives you a little more leeway rather than waiting for them to become an addict and put them in rehabilitation -- or being picked up by the police and now they have a criminal record and their future is pretty much shot with that."

Once the dog detects drugs, Rathy said it is up to the client to decide what the consequences should be.

"Whether they contact police or flush it down the toilet, it's left up to them," he said. "We'll obviously make recommendations to call authorities."

Rathy, who says they started the business more out of parental concerns than a bid to make money, charges only C$20 ($16) for the search of a private home or vehicle.

For businesses it costs a bit more, depending on the frequency of searches and the length of the contract.

He uses a portion of the business income to fund free drug awareness presentations at schools and non-profit organizations.

I think this is a good idea, they should also have drug dogs as regulars in schools so that any kid who comes in with substances that will harm others can be identified and dealt with quickly.

How will a kid with some MJ harm others?

Kids who smoke marijuana are more likely to have unsafe sex, drop out of school and get into fights. Anything to stop the spread of this menace is A-OK with me :thumbup:

I always loved that "get into fights" b/s.  The LAST thing I want to do after smokin' is get into a fight.

When your kid has some 'problems' with drugs, always call the police, they'll help you :thumbup:

Are kids allowed to hire the dog to search their parent's stuff?
