Afghan Dog Team Open for Buisness

Expert bomb sniffer dogs are now helping to protect G4S customers in Afghanistan as part of a brand-new service.

The Risk Management team recently took on the four explosive detection dogs, two handlers and two Afghan kennel hands, who are now protecting the British Embassy.

Shortly after the launch of the canine team, they were also awarded their first commercial contract – a one-day sweep of the Serena Hotel prior to a VIP visit.

“It came about after RONCO wound down their operations and gave us notice of their contract at the Embassy – and we decided to buy the dogs and employ the handlers directly,” said Chris Pook, Afghanistan Programme Director.

“Purely by coincidence we were asked at the same time by another security firm to provide an explosive dog team, and they were very happy with the service provided at the Serena Hotel. It’s definitely an area that we would like to grow.”

The dogs work a two-week rotation at the Embassy, afterwards returning to the Anjuman base for a fortnight.

“While they are here they are used for occasional work on our main gate, but we also take some time out for training and to let them have some fun as well,” Chris added.
