CONSERVATION DETECTION DOGS NORTHERN IRELAND
Founded in 2019 our team has vast experience working in conservation projects throughout Northern Ireland. We have expertise in not only dog training and handling, but also research, so can help you in all parts of your project design and conception. We think dogs can add a definite benefit to any conservation project, please get in touch with us to find out how our dogs can help you!
WIND TURBINE SURVEYS
Dogs are the ultimate tool in discovering the effect wind turbines have on bird and bat populations. We have trained our dogs on both bird and bat identification and can help ecologists measure the effect wind turbines have on these populations with increased accuracy and speed.
DETECTION DOG TRAINING
Doing Scentwork with your dog, even just for fun, can really benefit both dog and handler. Please get in touch with us if you would be interested in classes and check out our facebook page for future training opportunities.
VOLUNTEER CONSERVATION WORK
We are passionate about our volunteer work with local red squirrel groups. Currently we run a rapid response team for Ulster Wildlife and various red squirrel groups in NI to locate dead red squirrels and prevent the spread of squirrel pox. Please get in touch with us if you are part of a charity that could benefit from having a dog in your team.
If you have a project that you think could benefit from having a dog and handler involved please get in touch and we can advise you on how we can assist. Our dogs can be given specialised training for your project.
"Scent-detection dogs make a significant contribution to the conservation
programmes of many endangered species.... The major restriction to the use of trained scent-detection dogs appears
to be human imagination."
