Guardia Civil dog trainer joins Frontex panel



For the first time, a Guardia Civil officer will hold the post as Frontex advisor for dog training, due to the excellence shown in the field as an expert trainer.

The officer, Iván García, is assigned to the Guardia Civil Dog Training Centre, located in El Pardo (Madrid).

Until now, Frontex had only the support of four police experts to direct and organise these tasks for the benefit of all of Europe: one Finnish, one Austrian and two Swedes. Together with the newly incorporated Guardia Civil, they are in charge of deciding and defining the European standards that are then applied at the different levels and certifications.

This appointment has been approved within the framework of the course started in February to certify new European canine instructors, specifically during the exam module that is being developed at the headquarters of the National Republican Guard in Quelúz (Portugal).

Since 2008, the European Coastal and Border Agency (Frontex) has been developing numerous activities within the canine field with great involvement of the Guardia Civil with the aim of establishing high common standards in operational and training procedures for the use of dogs in police units.

Among others, dog guide certification courses and dog guide instructor certification courses from most European countries are held, as well as monographic sessions with specific objectives in order to improve operational or training procedures.

In each evaluation, a board made up of advisors is in charge of evaluating the new European Instructors. This “advisor” position is the highest of recognised technical knowledge and allows for the greatest autonomy and capacity in the exercise of management and instructional functions in the canine field.
