K-9 Handler Hannah Introduces Herself!

We need the selection of working dogs for multiple reasons: firstly, as a foundation for service use in various authorities. Equally important is the fulfillment of our working dogs, which live in families, ensuring they are appropriately challenged and engaged.

VIKA BEZUS, Ukrainian National Guard, Breeder: 'Our working dogs are important for our society.'

Our working dogs are important for our society. Dog sports ensure that there are enough well-trained dogs available.

The primary goal is the control and humane treatment of dogs. Therefore, I find it incomprehensible that our sport is being questioned, especially considering that bite incidents overwhelmingly occur with dogs owned by non-affiliated individuals.
