Protection Dogs UK have been supplying tobacco detection dogs for over 8 years.
We provide a service throughout the whole of the United Kingdom while operating
from the Central Belt in Scotland .
We provide assistance to the private and professional sector alike. Our clients include organisations such as Trading Standards Officers, HMRC and Police Scotland all of whom we have assisted in the recovery of counterfeit and illegally imported cigarettes or tobacco.
With regard to the Private sector our passive detection dogs can support employers to enforce the Smoking, Health and Social care (Scotland ) Act 2005 . The dogs are capable of screening staff in the workplace to ensure no tobacco products are being carried onto sites where smoking products are strictly prohibited. We can also carryout covert or overt searches of premises with the view of detecting concealed items of tobacco or cigarettes.
Over the past few years our dogs have recovered millions of cigarettes and kilos of contraband smoking products and some of these recoveries can be viewed in our gallery page.
