UK's MWD lead by a nose

A team of 4 military working dog handlers put their dogs – Otis (pictured), Chox, Ali and Benson – through their paces in unfamiliar surroundings onboard HMS Dragon. The ladders, sounds and smells that are all second nature to the crew of the warship presented a new experience to the highly efficient team based at Episkopi Garrison in Cyprus. Otis and Chox – specialist arms explosive search dogs – found a mock suspicious device hidden in 1 of the destroyer’s bunk spaces within minutes, ably assisted by handlers Corporal Morris and Lance Corporal Jones.
