When Jodie and Boyd Hooper of TASK-9 found the perfect five-acre rural property on the edge of a national park in a ‘green wedge zone’ without access to town water supply, they were on their own to come up with a water treatment plan to ensure safe drinking water for themselves and their dogs.
Their business, TASK-9 (Tactical and Specialist K-9), is located 30km South East of Melbourne and provides specialist training services for dogs of different specialist applications – such as law enforcement and search and rescue, along with training courses and consulting for handlers and trainers.
The dogs also benefit from clean water at the facility. They are trained rain hail or shine and each dog is trained to drink on command while working to aid scent detection by keeping the nasal system moist.
“We are quite health conscious and wanted to have the best filter solution for our house water – we needed something really clean. I started to do some research into the best system for us, and that led us to Davey’s Aquashield MAX.”
“Our relationship with Davey is that we call them whenever we need them and the service has been great. If there are new improvements and things we could be doing to increase our water quality then Davey let us know about them.”
