In the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in Primorye, classes were held with the leaders of the mine detection service dogs. The servicemen, together with their pets, will ensure safety at the celebrations dedicated to the 76th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War in Ussuriysk.

For keeping dogs in the engineering regiment of the association, spacious open-air cages and cynological camps are equipped. Classes are also held in other locations – a change in the situation makes it possible to complicate the tasks of searching for explosive objects in the adjacent territory of a military unit, in crowded places and on vehicles.

In addition, the events serve as preparation for the upcoming third (district) stage of the International Army Games-2021 “Find and Disarm” competition. The passed tests confirmed the high level of professionalism among the crews of the mine-search service.

The main task to which the dogs of the mine detection service are involved is to check the territory and objects for the presence of explosive objects. Despite the high-tech means of engineering weapons, the natural skills of animals still remain indispensable in various situations. When demining objects containing metal structures and fragments, no mine detector can replace the sensitive sense of smell of a service dog.
