K-9 cop magazine has been promoting the show in the past couple issues.

Harley's are more than just a 'guy hook' lol!

I'm definitely interested to see it. The kennel I worked at had been in talks with AP about doing a show, but it never went through.... I'm really curious to see how it works out for these guys. I could definitely see it going either way-- either people think "I want one of those cool dogs to bite people I don't like!" or "wow, maybe a Malinois is not for me...."

I hope they spend a good part of the time showing how much TRAINING goes into getting these dogs to do what they do.

And how much maintenance work is needed to KEEP them going.
Me too! And that would be much more interesting to me..

I just watched the show and found I had to turn it off... Especially after someone made the comment about wanting "an ass eating dog."

Not good for the blood pressure when a show makes you start talking to the TV! And your family thinks you've lost your mind..

I watched the first two episodes and loved it. I think that most of their dogs go to the military or police, mainly because I can't see to many people paying 50,000 for a dog. If someone is willing to spend this, then I'm sure they make sure its a match for the person. They seem to be pretty stuck on.."if the dog/handler don't get it right, then people die" One of the handlers got bit by their dog, they took the dog to see if the dog would remain or retire. They match these dogs with the handlers and it looks like they train for situations that the dogs will actually be in. There is mostly GSD's and Mals, but they did have a lab and I think that some kind of springer on the next episode.

Why did you turn it off? That was a cop making reference to finding a dog that would get the bad guy It wasn't just an ordinary person doing a tracking session with a highly trained dog. I don't understand why you were talking to the tv?

These are for military handlers and the dogs cannot back down when threatened, so the ass eating comment makes sense in that context.
