Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh), Nov 12 (ANI): Trained dogs today took part in an inter-frontier dog squad competition organized by the SSB (Armed Border Force).
The three-day contest will end today.
The dogs exhibited their canine abilities during the competition and their performance will be assessed on the basis of marching, searching for their handler, scent discrimination, detection of explosives and narcotics.
"The instructors present here are all qualified. Except for one day, the dogs are put to practice the whole week. We train them in new locations where we keep them with humans, which makes the training much more easier," said Anil Pawar, a dog trainer.
Selected on pure bred basis, dogs like the Doberman and the German Shepherd have been brought from Patna, Lucknow and Guwahati for the event.
P Sahu, Public Relation Officer, SSB, Paramilitary Border Force, said trained dogs were most useful in the present scenario where there are a lot of security related risks. (ANI)
