The advantages of using sniffer and search dogs Kent

The benefits of using sniffer dogs are numerous: they are fast, efficient, and non-intrusive. They can also cover large areas quickly and effectively. In addition, dogs are less likely than humans to miss something that they are looking for as they are trained to ignore distractions and focus their attention on tracking their target. Police forces use sniffer dogs in a variety of situations, such as search and rescue operations, drug raids, and missing persons cases. The dogs have helped to find many people who would otherwise not have been found. In recent years, they have also started using sniffer dogs to detect fake ID cards. The dogs are able to smell the difference between a real ID card and a fake one. This is a valuable tool in combating crime, as fake ID cards are often used by criminals to obtain products or services that they would not be able to get otherwise.
