Dogs

In the Republic of Croatia a handler and dog team is used as a second method in demining activities, i.e. as a follow up method after manual search or after mechanical treatment of the area.

A term "team" means a dog handler and a dog, or a dog handler and two dogs.

In order to be used in demining activities in the Republic of Croatia, every dog has to be certified by HCR-CTRO. According to the number of points achieved in the testing procedure, the teams are awarded certificates of conformity valid for 6, 9 or 12 months. A team which does not satisfy the test criteria has to repeat the testing.

All dogs that are used in demining activities in the Republic of Croatia are marked with a microchip.
