The international training is being held in Aruba for the fourth consecutive year.
From Monday to Friday, Aruba is the setting for varied training sessions, in which cooperation and exchange of knowledge and experience are central. In addition to training scenarios on land and on the water, where dog teams will climb and descend and have to perform arrests in difficult situations, the participants will also receive a presentation about heatstroke and other climate-related dangers for dogs. The whole provides an intensive and challenging training week for both Aruban and foreign leaders and their dogs.
Before the training week, Aruba BOT-K9 will give a presentation / demonstration on Saturday March 201930, around 6 p.m., during the Dog Show 2019 at Rancho Villa Floralina.
The Aruban special support team - dog brigade (BOT-K9) provides specialist support and support with dogs to the KIA and security partners at home and abroad and is highly regarded internationally. It regularly practices with other units in the Caribbean, such as the dog brigade of the St. Maarten police and renowned units such as the American Army Rangers and the Dutch Special Interventions Service (DSI).
