ARVADA, Colo. (AP) - Police dogs from around the country are being trained to sniff out homemade explosives at an Arvada high school.

Members of the Denver division of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Tuesday are training the dogs to detect peroxide-based bombs. The dogs and their handlers will also be trained to become nationally certified in odor detection during the three-day program at Arvada West High School.

Denver ATF agents will also introduce their own new bomb-sniffing dog, Randi. The ATF says the dog, which once helped the blind, can detect as many as 19,000 explosive combinations.
