  1. Hello there,
    I'm in need of some info on the T.A's as a protection dog handler. Has anyone out there done it or know anyone who has?

    Would I get to go on a three to six month tour?

    Is leistershire the only place where the RAVC get trained.

    Look forward to your replys

    T.A. Dog handler ?
    Who feeds it?
    Do you let the dog pig out for two hours on a Tuesday and then again on Sat & Sun?
    Or do you leave him 5 tins of chum and a tin opener till you come back in?
  3. You want to handle a TA dog? What, is it a cat for five days of the week?
  4. My mucker is a dog handler.

    Every Saturday we went down town - 2 babyshams and he was off "handling" some old dog.

    Angus 1 join the TA and do your best to be a part time imitation of a regular soldier. Forget the walter mitty job descriptions, unless yu really want to be a dog handler and then its the Regs or Plod for you.
  5. Its the TA, not the TA's!
  6. Gold, sir, pure gold! :worship:
  7. :D
  8. I've got a staffie you can borrow for tuesday nights and the odd weekend :twisted:
  9. Ok fair enough I didn't think look for a T.A forum,
    as for a bone request I originally and still find it hard to see how someone could be a dog handler in the T.A but from reading a post on this site from a thread a couple of years ago by someone stating that they served in Bosnia who was in the T.A, I thought best investigate further along with the fact that the careers office told me that T.A soilders are going on six month tours now. What am I supposed to think. That goes for all of you, thank you for your help, made me laugh
  10. Thank you, this is what I have thought all along, originally enquired about the regular Army but seems a big risk to whether I end up as a dog handler, have to think again.
  11. Ain't that the truth...
  12. Who let the dogs out!! :D
