The event is organised by the Financial Administration of the Slovak
Republic in cooperation with CELBET under Common Learning Events
Programme (CLEP) of the Customs Programme. The key objective of the
CLEP programme is to allow Participating countries to deliver Learning
and Development activities to national trainers, subject matter experts,
and experts with teaching practice. CLEP enables national administrations
to benefit from existing knowledge and expertise in the field of customs
or from training specifically designed as a CLEP to enhance the training
capacity or the professionalism of public administrations. This training
aims at improving the training methodology of sniffer dogs trained
for the detection of narcotics, tobacco and financial cash.
The objective of this training is to improve the vocational skills of the
service dogs and the Customs officers working as dog handlers at the EU´s
external border and to exchange the practical experience and best practices
in the field of training and use of service dogs to search for narcotics
and psychotropic substances, tobacco and tobacco products, as well
as financial cash. Mutual cooperation of dog handlers and sniffer dogs
from different countries and comparison of training methods directly
in the training process will contribute to the preparation and training
of sniffer dogs, with the aim to protect the financial interests of the EU
