    ^^ Now thats an interesting arrangement. An aussie dog handler with Canadians wearing CADPAT. I guess he would stand out to much if he had his AusCam on. This really makes me wonder why the CF does not develop its own dog capability like everyone else.

    I was under the impression we use contractors and other nations. A capability yes, but not our own handlers? I hope I am wrong.
