All the students at DLC were lucky enough to be visited by PC Mike and his dogs Blade (German Shepherd) and Fuzz (Springer X Pointer) from The Dorset Police Dog Unit.
Paul took questions from the students and staff and explained how police dogs are trained, what they search for and the dangers that they face. He also mentioned that the onlookers were not to pet the dogs whilst they were working so as not to distract them.
Blade demonstrated the skills it had by locating a secreted item that was hidden in the playground. A task that took no time at all for it’s well-trained nose. All the students and staff enjoyed the event with many saying the only negative was that they wished that they could have stroked the dogs, but added that they understood the importance of not doing so.
