Leak detection with sniffing dogs

Our sniffing dogs detect gas and oil leaks or illegal tappings fast and accurately


The goal of the pipeline industry remains zero leakage. Leaks need to be detected at the earliest stage possible to prevent soil contamination.

Our dogs locate gas and oil leaks, illegal tappings and electrical short circuits fast, accurately and efficiently. They pinpoint the exact leak locations, even in rural environments and hard-to-reach areas where it can be challenging to use measurement equipment. Our dogs have proven their capabilities many times and were the reason The Sniffers was founded in 1991.

Capabilities of our dogs

Gas and oil leaks

Locating leaks with equipment is expensive, time-consuming and often impossible in remote areas. Our dogs locate these leaks accurately, even in rural environments or challenging conditions.

Illegal tappings

Oil, ethylene, propane,... regardless of which valuable substance is flowing through your pipelines, illegal pipeline tapping is a major problem. Our sniffing dogs are specialized in locating illegal tapping.

Electrical short circuits

Detecting electrical short circuits is a labour-intensive and time-consuming process. By using sniffing dogs, short circuits can be located quickly and accurately in low and medium tension underground circuits. The ideal solution for minimizing downtime and optimizing repairs.

Benefits of leak detection with sniffing dogs

More accurate measurements

Compared to measurement equipment, dogs detect the smallest leaks on PPB level and also the exact leak location.

Easy access to rural environments

Your pipeline infrastructure is easy to reach for sniffing dogs. Difficult weather conditions and dense vegetation are no longer issues.

Cost effective detection method

Detect leaks earlier with fewer dog handlers and dogs compared and choose for a proactive detection method.
