TRAINING & Development

From 12-week-old puppies through to adulthood, our HeroDOGs follow a strict training program to ensure they become experts in surveying minefields to confirm the presence of landmines and other explosives. Socialisation, play, and reward-based training play a vital role in making them field-ready.
