Tobacco Detection

Tobacco Detection Dogs 

B.W.Y Canine’s  tobacco detection dog teams work in partnership with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, NHS Trusts, Police Forces and Trading Standards Services in the fight against illicit tobacco distribution and trading.

Able to detect both counterfeit and genuine tobacco and cigarettes, our dogs are trained using tobacco seized whilst carrying out operational tasks around the UK.

B.W.Y Canine’s founder Stuart Phillips is the UK’s leading expert on illegal tobacco concealments and has built up an enviable reputation as a tobacco detection dog handler and trainer.

We only use B.W.Y Canine tobacco detection dogs and would never consider using another provider. Prior to using Stuart and his amazing dogs, we did use another company, who in comparison did not have the skills, experience and knowledge that Stuart and his dogs have.
