Our Bed Bug Removal K-9's

RVA THERMAL HEAT of Richmond VA currently has 4 trained bed bug scent detection dogs. Each of these dogs are trained for months by a world renowned scent detection training facility in Alabama known as FSI Academy. The last part of each K9’s training involves our handler to go to Alabama and finish the training as a team. The entire staff prides ourselves in the fact that each of our K9s are rescued from area shelters and given a better life. Our dogs names are Pink, Blue, Cordy, and Roger.

RVA Thermal Heat did a great job in a troubling situation. They were discreet and respectful of how we felt during the whole process. I highly recommend their services. They helped me out tremendously
