My Hartpury experience

"The facilities and standard of teaching at Hartpury were extremely good. I have no doubt the qualifications and skills I gained helped me to get my job.

I always wanted to work with animals. That was my drive and that’s why I’m here doing what I am today. I’ve travelled to places like Afghanistan, America, and Lebanon, helping to search vehicles for arms and explosives. I carry out all the training for arms and explosives search dog training for the dogs and their handlers posted with our squadron. I teach them to look for ammunition, weapons and explosives in buildings, venues and outdoor areas across the UK and abroad."
