    It could just be my old age but didn't we have this thread a week or 2 ago??

    I can recall most of the ruff comments had little pedigree & most of them were just barking up the wrong tree.

    OH NO I`m off again. :roll:

  7. May want to check out the most famous of this site's posts. You'll need refreshments, somewhere to calm down, and about six hours to get through it. Nevertheless, I can't think of somedog more qualified to educate you than Stumpy

  9. A "shaggy" dog story if ever I heard one!

    At least you were able to check your own swabs :)
  10. Following basic military training at ATR Winchester, you will commence Corps training at the Defence Animal Centre, and will initially train up to Class 3 standard, handling protection dogs.

    You will also be taught how to act as an intruder wearing a padded arm!

    You will, following a suitable period, progress through to Class 2, and then Class 1.

    During this period you will have been instructed at each stage and taught all there is to know about dog training and kennel management. A a Dog Trainer you will able to qualify to Level 3 NVQ.

    Is there something special about being trained as an intruder with a padded arm? I would have thought it would have been quite straightforward to intrude with or without the arm thing. Unless of course the padding was used to break a window without risking personal harm - to your arm.

    Is there also a risk that protection dogs will only attack people with padded arms (or those unfortunate to have arms which are naturally big and merely look padded). I have big arms and now feel potentially discriminated against!
