SPCA New Zealand


Reggie was surrendered to SPCA by his owner as they weren’t in a position to provide him with the stimulation he needed.

Due to his obsession with tennis balls and ability to learn quickly, SPCA staff thought he may be a good candidate for Aviation Security Services (Avsec), and he has since been training to become an ‘explosives detector dog’. After months of training, Reggie and his handler Anke graduated!

It has been said that dogs like Reggie only come along once in every 60 dogs. “Reggie can be a bit of a clown, but the moment there is work to be done, he switches on and is extremely focused,” Anke says. “He is a pleasure to work with.”
