Tobacco trafficking is one of the crimes for which these attractive, clever creatures have been educated. Illicit tobacco does not comply with taxation and labelling regulations, decreasing the effectiveness of the UK government’s health goals aimed at relieving pressure on the NHS. It also hurts the economy by driving away businesses from licensed tobacco sellers who pay duty on their products. Both counterfeit and genuine tobacco and cigarettes can be detected by QK9 illegal tobacco detective dogs. Our canines are trained on tobacco confiscated during operational activities across the United Kingdom. Our tobacco detection dog teams have assisted HM Revenue & Customs, NHS Trusts, the Police, and Trading Standards in discovering counterfeit and illegal tobacco items, as well as detecting tobacco trafficked into hospitals and clinics.
