Service dogs and their important contribution

Sniffer dogs or rescue dogs in service play an important role in the search and rescue operations, be it during an earthquake or for combing operations.

The dogs in the Indian Army are highly trained and contribute in a number of ways.

During any natural calamity like earthquake or during combing operations in sensitive zones to find terrorists or militants, service dogs are pressed into action as their accuracy in such fields are unmatched.

After the devastating earthquake in Turkey this year in February that killed thousands, Army dogs Julie, Romio, Honey and Rambo were part of the four-member Indian dog squad engaged in rescue operations. They had reportedly also helped in detecting life from inside the debris, according to reports.
