Servicemen-cynologists of the tank and motorized rifle formations of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, are preparing for the all-army stage of the “Faithful Friend” competition, which is part of the program of the International Army Games “Army-2021”.

During the competition, dog handlers, together with their pets, will have to overcome the Dog Biathlon track, show their skill in shooting from a Kalashnikov assault rifle at the Sharp Shooter stage.

In addition, the competitors as part of the teams will run the “Dog Biathlon Relay”, during which each participant will pass a 1600-meter section of the track and execute five shots from a small-bore biathlon rifle BI-7-2 at a target from a distance of 50 meters.

The most spectacular exercise of the competition is overcoming a three-hundred-meter obstacle course.

To prepare for the competition, a training plan has been developed for the participants of the national team, which includes physical and fire training classes, as well as daily training of service dogs.

It is worth noting that the BBO team became the leaders of the all-army stage of the competition for two years in a row.
