A Wisbech based dog trainer is appealing for people around the Fenland area to become human sniffing-posts for his newly trained sniffer dogs.

Phil Bowyer runs Crown Canine Security Solutions, which trains ‘course ready’ detection dogs for the police service.

The dogs are used to sniff out illegal substances, explosives and other devices at airports, festivals and public events.

Mr Bowyer has trained hundreds of dogs during his career, and wants to put his dogs to the test by having them sniff members of the public before they graduate and begin their stints in the police force.

He said: “I’ve been working with dogs all my life since my days as a prison guard so training dogs for the police is a real passion of mine.

Anyone can come and get sniffed - the dogs are very friendly.”

Those willing to become human sniffing-posts can do so by visiting the Queen Mary Centre in Queen’s Road, Wisbech until the end of next week.
