Working Trials

Working Trials are based on the training that police dogs are given. They are physically demanding and as such require a fit dog and handler. The trials include:

  • ‘Search and track’ exercises, in which the dog follows tracks and finds

    objects using scent alone.

  • Agility tests, i.e. clearing hurdles and obstacles

  • Control exercises, including heelwork and general ‘response to command’ tasks.
