This will be a six part series namely " top dogs" with the first episode showing on November 4th 2013 at 8 pm on ITV Wales with an additional six episodes showing the same time each week on-wards. Its hoped that this fly on the wall type documentary will help educate the public what men , woman and dogs go through to become dog teams within the private security sector and the work involved to achieve and maintain high standards to help keep us safe and assist in the fight against criminal and terrorist activities in the UK and abroad.
