October 10, 2011, Toms River, New Jersey: Action Termite and Pest Control is pleased to announce the certification of 6 Bed Bug Dogs and Handlers by Hanlons K-9.

Actions Bed Bug Dogs have been nationally recognized as experts by: Animal Planet, Forbes, The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, NBCs Today Show, CBSs Early Show, Fox Philly, and many more.

The ongoing training of our bed bug dogs is vitally important in keeping them at the top of their abilities and by having this official certification it gives our teams and dogs the added credibility of a 3rd party certification commented John Russell, President. Hanlons K-9 is a great company and we have worked hard to make sure our dogs meet all the criteria of certification and we are very proud of our 6 dogs(Sarah, Rex, Cassie, Boomer, Titan and Duke) and their handlers for proving yet again they are the best in the industry.

Actions Bed Bug Dogs are used through out the entire bed bug inspection process and treatment process to ensure the best possible results. No job is too big or too small, our customers deserve the best and when they call Action they know that they are getting certified bed bug dogs that have proven themselves time and time again continued John Russell.

The certification process was rigorous, however, we have complete confidence in the abilities of our dogs commented Rich Wilbert, Certified Dog Handler. Duke (the bed bug dog) is not only a great working dog that is now certified, he is loved and well taken care of by Action Termite and Pest Control.

About Hanlons K-9

Rob Hanlon got his start in training for a very personal reason; he owned a difficult dog. He contacted many different trainers who employed many different methods. He finally found Louise Auger of Augers K9 and started his dog in Basic Obedience located in Oakland , New Jersey . He continued the training through the Advanced Competition level. He was so impressed by the quality of the training school that he enrolled in the Professional Dog Training Instructor Program and received his Master Dog Trainer certificate. His certifications include: Behavior Modification, Basic through Advanced Obedience, Competition Level Obedience, Agility, Police K9, Narcotics, Bomb Detection Search and Rescue, Personal Protection, Schutzhund Training, Therapy and several other specialty types of training. He is also certified in Kennel Management and Dog First Aid. After spending 7 years training at Augers K9, Rob moved to Ocean County in 2002 to attend the Police Academy .
In 2004, he decided to open his own training business in response to the growing needs of his friends and family. While the business started small, with just a few clients, word of mouth guaranteed that his clientele would soon expand. In just 3 years, his business has grown from a backyard venture to a full time training school. He has started his own Professional Dog Training Instructors course and currently has 5 trainers enrolled in the program
