Servicemen of the unit of guard dog leaders of the engineering unit of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), as part of testing the skills of pets, conducted a set of special trainings with them to protect especially important objects.

On the territory of the military camp, during one-day events, cynologists with dogs performed more than 10 functional elements, including neutralizing conditional saboteurs who entered the territory, arresting and escorting the offender, patrolling and bypassing the perimeter of the guarded object. Instructors in special protective suits acted as violators.

Also, control tests were carried out on the execution of service commands by dogs, overcoming obstacles by them at the canine camp, guarding the counselor, refusing food thrown by strangers.

Such trainings and exams help counselors to consolidate the necessary skills in their four-legged friends, as well as to determine the most prepared pets for duty on guard.

For keeping dogs in the compound, a dog training camp has been equipped, spacious enclosures have been built.

Service dogs of the military unit are represented by various breeds, including the Central Asian and Caucasian Shepherd Dogs. A counselor is assigned to each of them, who is engaged in their maintenance and systematic training.
