Dog Handler Courses in Northamptonshire

Complementing our canine security is our dedicated centre for dog handling courses. All our staff undergo rigorous training, as do the dogs in their charge, at our ICTS Canine Operations and Training Centre.

Our dog handler courses in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, and the Midlands (administered from our Canine Operations and Training Centre in Northamptonshire) are demanding and complete, producing handlers and dogs that operate with diligence and discipline. Our dogs can carry out the detection of explosives, drugs, tobacco, weapons, electronics and pyrotechnics, as well as criminals in hiding, rendering venues secure and minds at peace. Please see our calendar for details of future dog handler courses in the Midlands.
