NASDU Champion 2013
The National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU) was contacted by Roger Kember of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals (WCoSP) last year. WCoSP presents an annual award to a police, and military, dog and handler; and for 2013 the Company sought to include a dog and handler from the private sector. NASDU received confirmation from Don Randall MBE of the Dog of the Year Award Committee that the Company wanted to inaugurate the award and present it to the NASDU Trials Champion of its annual security dog trials. The awards were presented to the handlers and dogs by Brian Hughes, the Company Master, pictured right, and the Sheriff of London, Adrian Waddingham, at their Common Hall Meeting in the City of London, at Saddlers’ Hall on November 27. The civil division award went to Stefan Leca and his dog Yuko; the police and military winners were the Dog Section of the Police Service of Northern Ireland; and 4 Squadron RAF Police.
