I watched the show.....it is simply just a "show, a program".
It portrays dogs being trained for Military & LEO programs.
People have always had an interest in "what it takes to make a Police or Military K9"...and the show captures some training excercises that are required.
We were invited to watch (privately) a couple of our own dogs that were being trained for LEO....and it was very similar (except for the 6ft building jump)...and that the trainers used drugs instead of explosive scents.
It takes a lot of work! It is very demanding, and MANY dogs do not make the final cut.
The only thing I found annoying on the show is the constant reminder that they had "Military Top Clearances" for doing their work......no need to constantly repeat.
Programs use different breeds of dogs for different jobs......it all depends on the dogs qualities being trained.
I think the show can be educational.....but no matter how much education there is offered in the dog world.....you are still going to find those "special" people, who only want and breed.....REAL DOGS! (insert facetious tone here).....JMHO.
