For a number of years NASDU has run its National Working Dog Trials for Security Dog Handlers. The Trials are open to NASDU Members and attract both the experienced and the novice new comer. Competitors compete in the morning session on search procedures and handler protection with the afternoon session concentrated in the central area on obedience and agility.
Prizes are awarded for Overall Trials Winner, Handler Protection, Obedience, Agility, Best Newcomer, Best Turned Out Handler and Dog, Best Turned Out Patrol Vehicle, Best Bite and Happiest Dog.
The Trials have previously been sponsored by Purina who commented “that the standard of competitors was equal to that seen within the Police and Prison Services and that they were proud to be associated with NASDU as we raise the bar for private security services”.
We are very proud to have supported our very own dog handler team who entered into the 2014 trials and achieved 3rd place in both 'Obedience' and 'Agility'. See Latest News for more details.
