The Ecology Detection Dogs in Britain and Ireland working group is an open and collaborative group that aims to promote the development of research-based standards, create a culture of responsible dog use, encourage collaboration and involvement of key partners and organisations and develop an accreditation process for ecology dogs and handlers.
