Chester Self Storage has opened its facility in Chester, Cheshire, England, to Wagtail International for detection-dog training. The canines are taught to detect cadavers, cash, drugs, explosives and firearms, illegal immigrants, and tobacco, according to Wagtail’s website.
“It’s our pleasure to provide Wagtail with somewhere to train their dogs. It’s exciting to be part of training that could potentially save people’s lives,” said James Matthews, the self-storage facility manager.
Founded in 2003, Wagtail is a private U.K. company whose clients include immigration and customs agencies, police, and high-profile companies. It also provides detection dogs for mountain and urban disasters. Wagtail serves clients in Africa, the Far East, Mainland Europe, the Middle East and North America.
Chester Self Storage at One Hartford Way is in the Sealand Industrial Estate. It’s part of Storage Boost Group, which was launched in 2005 by brothers Andy and Nick Wood. The company operates three drive-in storage facilities in Chester, Crewe and Stafford, England.
