in the framework of active response to terrorist incidents requiring warfare (prevention, locating and capturing suspects, targeted action, detention or overpowering suicide bombers or attackers, hostage situations etc.), the anti-terrorist dog is an integral part of the team of warriors. SWAT units (special police unit) with anti-terrorist dogs have a huge advantage in defense and mainly in attack mode. An anti-terrorist dog detains the suicide bomber at a large distance from the target (following identification by its handler and command given to the dog), is the first to open paths that may be booby trapped, warns of ambushes, diverts the enemy’s attention and so on. Anti-terrorist dogs undergo special diagnosis for their role, including appropriate physical structure and fitness tests.
