Wherever possible we offer our facilities to the local community, and one of the great ways is when the Dorset Police dog handlers visit to train their search dogs. Great for us because we love dogs!
The dogs need to get used to commercial environments and our premises are ideal… so they visit every few months for a training session. The sniffer dogs are trained in searching for drugs, cash and firearms. They receive specialist training to develop their sense of smell – already said to be 200 times more sensitive than the human version.
Here’s dog handler Andy Warbridge with one of the Force’s springer spaniels, Deefor.
