Cheshire Police are looking for dog lovers to look after their police dogs

Cheshire and North Wales Police Dogs

Cheshire Police are looking for volunteers to visit their kennels and care for their police dogs.

It's all part of the Police Dog Welfare Scheme in which volunteers will visit the kennels to spend time with the dogs – which also includes attending specialised training sessions.

You will observe, comment and report on the conditions of both the dogs and the kennels they are housed in and you will even get a chance to accompany dog handlers on patrol.

Speaking about the scheme, Cheshire police and crime commissioner David Keane said: "Police dog welfare visitors act as 'critical friends' providing me with independent and invaluable feedback to ensure our police dogs are properly cared for, happy and their working conditions are acceptable."

The aim is to keep standards high, therefore volunteers will make monthly unannounced visits to the kennels and report back to Cheshire Constabulary and North Wales Police.

The force is looking for volunteers with real experience in animal welfare and big dogs. These woofers are by no means cuddly, docile pups – and you'll need to know what you are doing.

Anyone interested in applying should contact Sarah Tilling in the commissioner's office, either by calling 01606 364000 or emailing pcc@cheshire.pnn.police.uk.
