Ol Pejeta is one of the largest black rhino sanctuaries in East Africa. Set over 90,000 acres, it's dog section reinforces anti-poaching efforts by protecting wildlife, safeguarding the local community and assisting the work of the KPR and other conservancies. Our work with Ol Pejeta began in August 2013 with our lead trainer, ex - Royal Army Military Dog Instructor Daryll Pleasants advising and assisting on the expansion and upgrading of the original kennel block to house an additional eleven Belgian Malanois puppies and a fully functional canine agility arena. Daryll also conducted talks, tours and training displays at the section to students and various conservation groups.

The Ol Pejeta dogs were trained and classified by Daryll with each specializing in a different area such as: arms explosives detection dogs, multi- discipline and triple role dogs, assault dogs (that run completely silent for silent for ambush attacks) , infantry patrol dogs and tracker dogs. The handlers were also trained in specialist canine tactics, kennel management and canine care, leading to full certification , by us, for each handler at the end of training. We also provided sponsored kit for each dog and handler such as collars, leads, tracker lines and harnesses. We have now fully completed this project at Ol Pejeta and are pleased to report that the section continues to help protect not only Ol Pejeta but other surrounding conservancies.
