The facility at the Defence Animal Training Regiment (DATR) will be 96% self-sustaining and is scheduled for completion by October.
The Canine Training Squadron benefitting from the new build is the largest Squadron within DATR. Home to around 200 working dogs at any one time, it employs 50 Army personnel and 20 RAF Police personnel supported by a team of civilians. Together they train the highly skilled military dogs and their handlers for a variety of roles ranging from operations in the UK to deployment overseas.
A self-sustainable training facility is being built for our Military Working Dogs and their handlers at the Defence Animal Training Regiment in Leicestershire. @Official_DATR
