About the show

Dog Squad follows the integral role that working dogs and their handlers play in the protection of our streets, prisons, mountains, airports and borders.

The series follows the real events these dogs are involved in with aviation security, Police and correction services.

Dog Squad also looks at the relationship that develops between the canine and its handler while in the field, how they mutually perform their jobs and each dog's individual style of work. 

The results of their hard work and many hours of training are displayed when the teams uncover drugs and track down criminals and these intelligent animals are rewarded with a rolled up tea-towel or toy to play with.
