The dogs are trained to work in crowded, noisy environments, to track and detect suspicious odours on a moving target or in a hidden location. The dogs are trained to:

  • Display a passive response to indicate explosives by sitting/lying or in an active way of barking.
  • Detect explosive compounds, including ammunition and firearms (inc. people carrying explosives) on buses, trains, planes.
  • Display non – aggressive behaviour to strangers and behave passively in populated areas such as train stations, airports.
