Ward is delighted to share that dog handler Aaron Page-Baldwin has become a NASDU certified Instructor in Explosive Detection and Drugs Detection.
During the seven years Aaron has worked at Ward, he has maintained an interest in all aspects of dog training, achieving excellent standards with his own dogs and passing this knowledge on to other team members.
Aaron passed the NASDU General Purpose Dog Trainers module approximately a year ago. From this, he has honed his instructional skill, becoming a confident and competent instructor.
Over the past three months, Aaron has developed his instructional portfolio in both Explosive Search and Drug Detection Dogs. He has worked closely with Ward’s Canine Director, Ali Tod, and Canine Training Manager, John Nicholls, to broaden his knowledge.
On the 17th of April, Aaron was assessed by two established Search Dog Instructors who both sit on the NASDU Committee. Aaron passed the assessment and is now accredited to instruct all disciplines of Security Dog work.
