Talisman Sabre – military working dogs

Australian Army Private Jordon Williams, Military Police Dog Element, 1st Military Police Battalion, conducts military-police-dog training during Exercise Talisman Sabre.

Private Williams’ unit is providing protection for a brigade maintenance area – BMA.

Private Williams said most of the training they conducted at the military police dog element was bite work, muzzle attacks and basic obedience, with extras in tracking and building searches and clearances.

“Our primary job on the Talisman Sabre will be to protect the BMA, patrolling and anything else that’s required for dog work,” he said.

The police dogs in training are Jax and Kazan.
