The ignorance of this is appalling. Not even worth replying too. Believe me, no one mistakes you as a cop LOL
Actually, I can second his experience.
I was let go by a cop that actually asked me what police agency I am with and I told him I'm not with an agency but with an all volunteer team and then he still let me go without a ticket. My team mate was let go by a cop without a ticket. In two years I've been stopped only once. That's it.
Our Schutzhund group is perceived as Police Dog training. We are in the middle of a city on a football field at an old school ground and I've asked my trainer why nobody ever calls the police because of the noise. It's because they think our dogs are police dog and because there is also a cop training with us and the first time I was out there, she was in full duty uniform and with her car. So that strengthens the picture.
The average person doesn't know the difference between Police Dog work or Schutzhund. To them it's all the same.
It gets even better, on post I had Soldiers driving up wondering what the dogs are doing out of their kennel because apparently mine look just like the military working dogs they have. They thought I somehow was involved with working them.
You don't seem to know much about how people perceive things. If you drive around with a dog trailer that says caution working k9
of course you get people that think that these are police dogs. Maybe you have not made that experience yet, however, quite a few of us did. So don't talk about ignorance when you haven't made that experience yet.
