Although most of our business is in well known sports like car and motor racing, active sports like running, cycling and GPS tracking of events, we do like it when there are events that are different. Today’s feature is an event for army and police dogs in the Netherlands.


Timed with ChampionChip, the dogs have to follow a course. And not just the dogs: their human police colleagues accompany them along the same course, even if that means going into the water.


The movie is in Dutch, but the pictures tell all: http://bit.ly/a89G45
