We, the students of Grade X, were taken to Nepal Police Canine division, which is located at Maharajgunj. We were taken by the school bus to the location. We departed from school at 10 am and we reached there at around 10:30 am. We were guided by DSP Ram Chandra Satyal. He described to us about the dog breeds and its services. We noted down all the important details he gave.
The term 'canine’ refers to the dogs. The Nepal Police Canine division was established in 2032 BS. Out of 300 dog breeds in the world, 20 are used for police agencies. There are 8 different dog breeds there. We were informed that the dogs were used for crime investigations, they are also employed to find out narcotics and other drugs, they are applicable in a murder cases and to rescue people. The dogs usually work due to their very strong smelling power. We were also shown some demonstrations about how the dogs perform. We saw German Shepherd, Malinois dogs, Bloodhound, Dutch Shepherd, Labrador. These dogs are advantageous in police agencies. These dogs are also used before VVIP moment to ensure that the place is secured and we came to know that the dogs were bought from other countries paying 4 lakhs to 7 lakhs. The dogs had more capacity and efficiency than humans.
Lastly, I'd like to thank the school department for planning a wonderful visit. We acquired a lot of knowledge about the dogs and their breeds, we came to know more about how efficient dogs are. Hence, this trip was very informative.
