ŠKODA UK has created a canine-friendly version of its multi award-winning Superb to support police dog units across the UK.
The upgraded Superb Estate, which complies with the rigorous new standards for police dog vehicles set out by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), has been designed to transport general purpose police dogs, as well as trained drugs-search and explosives-detection dogs.
Available in either two or four-wheel drive, each vehicle goes through a police vehicle conversion service, with bespoke interior features to keep the dogs safe, cool, and comfortable. One customer has snapped up eight vehicles and a demo version is has recently started a one-year tour of forces across the country.
ŠKODA is inviting additional forces to get in touch and register for their free trial. Police forces wishing to register their interest in testing the Superb dog vehicle on loan can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01908 548043.
