Welcome to Wagtail International, leading specialists in detection dogs and dog handler training.


Specialist Dog Detection Courses for 2017 to be announced soon

Next event: 7th Dec





We provide expertly trained dogs and dog teams for the detection of explosives and firearms, drugs, cash, tobacco, illegal immigrants, cadaver and hydrocarbons as well as rescue dogs (mountain and urban disaster) and personal protection.

Dogs are the most reliable and consistent factor in the detection of illegal substances and firearms, and are effective in searches of people, transport and property. With the rise in the drugs trade and an escalation in terrorism, we provide specialist detection dogs globally.

Typical clients include the Police, Immigration and Customs (the UK Border Force), the Ministry of Defence, high profile blue-chip companies and UK sporting venues. We provide services internationally across the Middle East, Africa, the Far East, Mainland Europe and North America.

Wagtail International is one of the few companies to hold a Home Office Licence to store and keep explosives and drugs for detection dog training. All our detection dog handlers and detection dog training is to British Military and Police standards.
