Title: Ships having dogs
Post by: Jean paul on March 20, 2018, 09:36:31 PM
If Airport has a K9 for bomb inspection, so is a train station. How come ships don't have dogs for protection? If there will be a dog on the ship they should have a protection. Just like this dog life jacket (, which will help them in times of danger o matter if you’re on a boat, by the pool or taking a trip near the ocean.

Both airports and train stations generally don't move, and are a hotspot in terms of risk for bombs and such.

Ships, on the other hand, tend to move.
The german Wasserschutzpolizei has a K9 unit, and they're sometimes used along with the Zoll K9 units to inspect incoming cargoships in the german high seas ports. This is within legal bounds.
Out of experience i can tell you that the cruise terminal in Hamburg also gets a Zoll K9 unit sometimes, when boats arrive from cruises in the caribbean.
You'll not see K9s onboard of cruiseships, as the police or customs or whatever would need a courts order to even be allowed onto the boat to search it.
