Helping Paw For Bhutan

This news is a first for India, involving both dog training and diplomatic relations.

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police will be training five sniffer and tracker dogs for the Royal Bhutan Police, purely as a token of generosity, after a request made by the authorities in Bhutan. The dogs will be trained to help the Royal Bhutan Police in specific counter-narcotics and anti-sabotage tasks, says a report by The Freepress Journal. The breeds trained will be German Shepherds and Labradors who will become Bhutan’s first elite sniffer dog squad.  

These five dogs will be trained for 2-3 months before being handed over to the Royal Bhutan Police. The ITBP’s canine training centre in Chandigarh is considered to be the best dog training centre in the country. It has successfully trained the first Malinois dogs to aid troops in patrolling the Naxal-controlled areas.

The success of ITBP can be seen from the fact that it was their dog squad that was called in for the swearing-in ceremony of the new cabinet at Rashtrapati Bhavan and to sniff out the hotels and venues where leaders from SAARC countries were staying before meeting PM Narendra Modi.

Sniffer dogs are used extensively by Indian forces to sniff out explosives, narcotics, trapped humans during natural disasters, crime evidence, firearms, currency, etc. Read more about the specific roles that dogs play here.
