Nigel Allsopp is a world authority on canines. He spent 15 years as a military working dog handler in the Royal New Zealand Air Force Police, responsible for all aspects of Canine Operations and training within the NZ Defence Force. He has trained personnel from numerous government agencies – including Customs, Police, Corrective Services and Federal Aviation Security – in the use of specialist dogs. After leaving the military to pursue an interest in wild canine research, Nigel migrated to Australia, where he has worked with manned wolves, timber wolves, dingoes and African Cape hunting dogs at several zoos and wildlife parks. A yearning to work with dogs again led Nigel to join the Queensland Police Service, where he currently serves as a senior constable in the Dog Section, working with a firearms/explosive-detection dog. He also trains numerous Specialist Detection Dogs for various Federal and State government Departments
