Throughout August, Royal Albert Dock is welcoming demonstrations from Boarder Force and their detector dogs as part of Maritime Museum’s SIEZED! The Border & Customs Uncovered Gallery exhibition. 

Hosting four visits for the first time since the pandemic, Maritime Museum of offering the unique chance to see these highly-skills dogs in action and to find out more about their work. Demonstrations will take place every Thursday (4th, 11th, 18th and 25th) at three times per day (12pm, 1pm and 2pm). These are free, drop-in sessions with no requirement to book and take place in the 4th floor lecture hall at Maritime Museum. 

Detector dogs have been helping to safeguard our ports and airports for many years. Each dog works with a handler from Border Force to detect hidden objects including drugs, weapons and other smuggled goods.
