I've searched and not found this anywhere else, sorry if I'm just a mong and it's already been done to death. If you need ideas for "My mrs is a dog" or "i've slept with a few in my time" then feel free to steal ideas from the countless other posts that've been made of similar nature The serious part: What is the chance of being deployed to sandy places as a dog trainer? I'm thinking a bit about moving to it from being a STAB (infantry). I understand that I will have to go through phase 1 all over again etc. etc.. I'd quite like to get on ops with the job, where I imagine dog handlers would have quite an active role (?). I don't want to be stuck in the UK/Germany all the time. Is a dog trainer someone who then handles the dog on ops, or do they just train the dog and then pass them on down the line to handlers? Ideally what I'd like to do is see active service doing the bomb/porn searching duties. I hold no accountability for any lack of sense in the above post as I really have no idea what I'm talking about here, as it's just an idea at present. Cheers.
