Scheduled classes are held with service dogs, in which German and Belgian shepherds perform exercises to overcome the track and field barrier, trenches and fords, “destroyed bridge”. The most difficult of the exercises are the “blank fence” up to one and a half meters high and the “folding ladder” up to two meters high.

The personnel, together with the dogs, work out a set of training sessions for overcoming obstacle courses, searching for camouflaged mines and detecting explosives in various objects.

Also, servicemen study the basic safety requirements during the engineering reconnaissance of the area, the procedure for detecting explosive objects by the dog and their further neutralization.

The first stage of the cynological competition will be held at the end of this year among servicemen-cynologists of formations and military units of the army corps of the Black Sea Fleet.
