While Animalcouriers were waiting for the ferry at Calais, we met Mitzy, a sniffer dog, and Gary, her owner and handler.

Gary and the other dog handlers at Calais took a look inside our van and were very impressed at how well behaved our passengers were, and commented on how relaxed and friendly they all seemed. Naturally there was an exchange of biscuits and nose tickles.

Mitzy and her doggy colleagues had already sniffed out 12 ‘illegals’ that day, and more than 7,000 over the past six months.
