1953 - 1965
In 1953, Karen, the Alsatian bitch whose name was adopted by the Company, was born. The unique qualities consistently demonstrated by Karen in almost every aspect of dog work, more particularly in specialist research and development projects, quickly gained international recognition. Training commissions were received from every European Country and from every Scandinavian Country, where the Company quickly established a reputation for its efficiency and professional excellence.
As a result, the early 1960s was a period of intense activity when Karenswood (International) Ltd received many requests for technical advice and assistance from police and military establishments around the world and notably from the British Army War Dog Training School - now the Defence Animal Centre, and also from the British Royal Air Force.
Following research trials conducted by Karenswood (International) Ltd in 1964, the Company produced the worlds first ever Hydrocarbons Search Dog - fire investigation. For a complete literature package, please do not hesitate to contact us.
