Sniffer dogs and their handlers spent the morning training at London’s Paddington Station earlier this week to demonstrate their skills at detecting Covid-19.
Having been trained in a lab environment, this was the first time at a location similar to their intended role and environment. The dogs could be on duty at busy stations and airports as soon as April next year, if not before.
You can support Norman, Digby, Storm, Star, Jasper and Asher and volunteer in the study. Visit the website for more information.
Apart from Paddington Square, bio detection dogs have started work at Helsinki airport to detect coronavirus. Although this was just part of a trial, it seems as if sniffer dogs are here to stay as it is cheap, fast and effective!
