Mine Detection Dogs

  • AT and AP mines of newer productions contain less to none metallic parts; detection with handheld metal detectors is almost impossible, very dangerous and therefore irresponsible.
  • Manual detection with metal detectors can be carried out in limited areas only; in „after battle" grounds, too many metallic parts remain and will cause false alarms and the soil is often calciferous.
  • MDDs search primary for explosive substances (even UXOs).
  • MDDs are able to detect while working in a team the given UN standard of 99.6% (or higher) for humanitarian demining.
  • MDDs are faster and much more efficient than any other demining systems.
  • There are no alternatives to well trained mine dogs so far.
  • All scientific studies  (UN, ICRC, Handicap International, HELP, etc.) confirm the necessity of MDDs.

  • MDDs are advantageous to other demining/detecting systems and tools.
  • MDDs can be used in pathless, impracticable and difficult terrain.
  • MDDs can be trained relatively easy.
  • All plant mines hinder refugees to return home, even the war is over.
  • Mine detector dogs TODAY are better than prosthesis TOMORROW!
  • MDD is our reply to humanitarian co-operation and charitable help.
