Canine Services

Chilport (UK)'s canine services division is amongst the best in the world. It excels in training dogs and handlers to meet the ever increasing demands in the war against terrorism, with it's arsenal of explosives and weapons. Together with the increasing fight against narcotics and illegal immigrants.

The canine services division is headed by a former RAF Police specialist who was formerly responsible for training of explosive and drug dog teams for the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, HM Customs, Hong Kong Customs and the United States Air Force in Europe.

The canine services division is situated at the headquarters of Chilport (UK) at Portland, Dorset where there is a transit kennel compound and canine husbandry centre. Most UK-based dog training takes place at Portland. Clients are welcome to visit our facility by prior appointment only.

Chilport (UK) uses an updated version of the 'Systems Approach to Training' which was so successfully pioneered by the Royal Air Force and which has now been implemented by both government and industry.

Chilport (UK) provides teams of trained dogs and handlers to undertake specific disciplines. In addition, Chilport (UK) will also supply trained dogs and train your handlers. Chilport (UK) also offers a comprehensive linked handler training package which includes training conducted at the clients location.

Chilport (UK) encourages use of both its post-graduation continuation programme and regular inspections by Chilport (UK) officers to ensure the standards of both the dogs and handlers are being maintained.

Chilport (UK) selects all its dogs from quality stock. These dogs are evaluated to ensure they display the qualities necessary for their proposed tasks.
