1st Military Working Dog Regiment

This is a holding page. Once we have a contact from this group of people we will hope to find someone that would like to add information that will assist the newcomers to our village thereby allowing them to settle in faster.

Welcome

In the meantime here is a link to something that will tell a small part of the story

The 1st Military Working Dog Regiment's mission is to deliver Military Working Dog and Veterinary capability in support of Field Army outputs.

Delivering a wide range of Military Working Dog capabilities, the Regiment plays a pivotal role in supporting a number of key activities including; counter insurgency operations, the detection of Improvised Explosive Devices, assistance in the searching of routes, buildings and vehicles, enhancing security and patrolling key installations. The military effects the Regiment provides in support of operations range from that of deterrence and detection, right through to the use of sub-lethal force.

The 1st Military Working Dog Regiment consists of three Regular and two Reserve Military Working Dog Squadrons, comprising 299 Regular soldiers and officers with the ability to surge to a maximum capacity of 384 Military Working Dogs. The recent creation of a Reserve component also provides an exciting opportunity to generate, train and fully integrate an additional 350 Army Reservists into the Regiment. Reserve roles include Dog Handlers, Veterinary Nurses and Veterinary Officers.

Continuing to support operations both at home and abroad, the Regiment is on track to meet its rebasing commitments, consolidating within St. George's Barracks, North Luffenham by late 2017. Until then, the Unit will continue to operate from bases in Sennelager, Germany, North Luffenham and Cyprus.
