our k9’s

Pit-Track is a K-9 conservation unit.  Through our extensive experience in working K9s and Anti-Poaching operations in the field, the K-9 function in an anti-poaching unit is irreplaceable by man or machine, as we patrol and lie in ambush in some of the most dangerous territories in the world, in pitch darkness our K9’s are able to perform the following functions:

  • Our K9s are our eyes, ears, noses, and companions in the bush
  • The K9s ability to follow the scent, rather than spoor (footprints), allow the operators to sprint on the follow-ups and release apprehension dogs on suspects, this has proven to bring results and is more effective than conventional methods
  • The K9s locates poachers and apprehend the suspects for our APU
  • Through this, we have also created a better purpose for the K9s themselves, the protection of our natural heritage.
