Send in the Dogs Australia, the show that follows man’s best friend in their fight against crime, returns on Wednesday, September 28 at 7.30pm on Channel Nine.
The observational documentary series highlights the extraordinary work of Aussie police dogs and their handlers as they track down criminals and missing people, uncover illegal drugs and weapons, and keep our streets safe.
Police forces in Australia use a vast range of high-tech devices in their fight against crime, yet these advanced technologies have failed to match the natural instincts of police dogs. With a skill set designed for police work, the abilities of these dogs will amaze you.
Following these canine detectives day and night as they help to keep the peace and uphold justice, Send in the Dogs Australia explores the special relationship between Aussie police dogs and their handlers. The intriguing series highlights the intense bond between dogs and handlers as they team up to do a job that no one else can.
In week one we meet police dog Zac who has not long returned to the force after a near fatal stab wound in the line of duty. Decked out in a custom-made armored vest, he is back and on the trail of three armed fugitives. Plus we see young drug detector Jazz in action at a weekend music festival. With hundreds of people to search, you will be shocked by what she finds.
