Made up of handler and dog teams, the Rhino Dog Squad plays a vital role in protecting rhinos across four wildlife conservancies in Kenya; Ol Jogi, Ol Pejeta, Lewa and Borana Conservancies. Rhino Dog Squad logo

The Rhino Dog Squad needs your help. With the rhino poaching threat increasing, it is important that the rhino conservancies have well equipped and well-trained dog units needed to stay one step ahead of the poachers.


The two breeds used are Bloodhounds and Belgian Malinois because of their track, scent and attack stills.

Rhino Dog Squad logo- Tracker dogs have an incredible sense of smell and can cover huge distances over difficult terrain. Handlers can find one footprint, obtain a scent and give it to the dog, which then follows the scent for up to 24-28 hours

- Scent dogs can be trained to detect illegal substances such as rhino horn, guns or ammunition. They can be deployed at checkpoints or roadblocks and can search vehicles and property

-Attack dogs are trained to bite and hold would-be or actual poachers, in order to disable the gun-holding arm so that handlers can safely apprehend and arrest suspects. These dogs help protect handlers and are a good deterrent to illegal activity

    Hi I have a safari company taking tourists on game drives. I would like to use some of your information to talk to them about around the fire. And will send donations for each safari I conduct. Would I be able to put your logo on my business website?
