MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Servicemen-leaders of service guard and mine-search dogs of the Russian military base of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in Abkhazia have begun the first complex of general training of their pets. Military dog handlers train dogs in service commands, overcoming obstacles, as well as guarding the owner.
The next stage of training will be separate special training in mine search and guard service. The four-legged friends will be trained in the detention and escort of the offender, refusal of food offered or thrown by strangers, the protection of military facilities, as well as work in the exploration of minefields, demining settlements and individual objects.
Pets are regularly delivered to the military base of the Southern Military District at the end of each year from the 470th Service Dog Breeding Center of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the Moscow Region.
A modern kennel town has been erected on the territory of the military base for keeping service dogs. On the fenced area with a perimeter of 150 by 100 m, comfortable enclosures are equipped, as well as more than 10 different simulators for training pets, such as a ladder, a narrow bridge, a high fence and a patrolling rope.
Upon completion of the training course, service dogs will help servicemen of the Southern Military District in the search for explosives and at guard posts while protecting the facilities of the compound.
