About Us & Service Record

  • André Le Roux started his dog career in 1992 in the military. After the military he worked as a Mine Detection dog handler in various African countries and Bosnia Herzegovina. He was the co-founder of the Mine Dog Centre South Africa which later became the mine dog school in conjunction with Mine Tech International and he is still the owner of the dog school property. Part of his joint managing director duties were to oversee the training of dogs, new handlers, and personally deploying and accrediting dogs and handlers in over 14 countries on 5 continents. He also served as part of the advisory group for the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD). In this time Andre was part of compiling a puppy socializing program for demining dogs (http://www.gichd.org/fileadmin/pdf/publications/MDD/MDD_ch2_part1.pdf). To further his knowledge in detection dogs, he worked in Afghanistan as a Mission Dog Handler attached to the Canadian military to clear roads and patrol routes for Improvised Explosive Devises (IED’s) (Resume available on request).

  • Thys Kleyn heads up the patrol and aggression training. He has a huge amount of K-9 experience in South Africa and abroad. He served 9 years in the SAPS as K9 instructor (during this time he finished his LLb degree at the University of Pretoria and is currently on the non-practicing roll of lawyers of South Africa) and 12 years in countries like Tanzania, Iraq and Afghanistan as handler, trainer and Project Manager. In Iraq he was part of the personal protection teams for Prime Minister Maliki and President Alawi. He was also responsible for establishing a canine unit at the Sulamania International Airport in Kurdistan.

    In Afghanistan he assisted the Coalition forces as Combat dog Handler for four years. During this time he was deployed with the ground troops for four years handling a dog searching and defeating Road Side bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices. Thys was also a trainer, Project Manager and quality control manager for canine programs in Afghanistan for another three years. During this time he trained the VIP dog unit for President Karzai and the Border Police.

The dogs are trained at our facility just outside Pretoria. The environment suits us well in preparing the dogs for any area in Africa with the kennels situated in the Seringveld Conservation area. The kennel facility is close to the world renowned Onderstepoort medical facility and also within an hour’s drive from Oliver Tambo International Airport. Once fully trained and certified the dogs are housed on the sites where they are deployed. Proficiency training and further training takes place on site. This ensures the dog and dog handler’s knowledge of their areas of responsibilities enabling them to detect anything out of the ordinary. Training on site also spreads the word about the dog’s abilities through day workers / contractors witnessing the training increasing the crime deterrence effect of the K-9 teams. Validations by a third party will take place on site as well at least once a year so as to ensure that standards of the K-9 unit are maintained. Through our partnership with numerous security companies in Pretoria we have many teams deployed at residential and commercial properties and we use these premises also as socialization sites for the young dogs.

All teams comply with the minimum standards set by PSIRA and SASSETA. In addition to this all teams will also comply with the US Army regulation 190-12 standard which is used internationally ensuring teams of the highest caliber and professionalism beyond reproach. De-mining/ UXO dog teams comply with the International Mine Action Standards (IMAS).
