Earlier this month our three newest recruits visited the Big Cat Sanctuary as part of their training for Big Cat Familiarisation. It is a crucial part of their training as they will regularly encounter these animals and will need to remain steady whilst on operational work in Africa. As part of this experience the dogs go into the lion enclosures and carry out tracking exercises.
