About me

I am a dog handler whose area of expertise is Handling and Training of Explosive Detection Dogs
(EDD) as well as Handling and Training of Mine Detection Dogs (MDD). I am a mature EDD
Handler with 17 years of work experience. Dependability, Responsibility and Hardworking are some
of my inherent characteristics that have stood the test of time. Apart from that I am able to
communicate effectively at any level both orally and in writing. I adapt effortlessly to any new
environment and have an excellent ability to work with people of different nationalities and people of
all religious persuasions.
I would be an asset to an employer who is looking for more than an employee but also a member and
representative of the company for responsibilities of all EDD teams on the ground.
