Hard dogs maybe??

On the video I kinda thought teaching the "out" was a basic?? Guess as long as they clamp onto a right target screw it..yank the dog off!

But I guess sometimes K9's can be unpredictable:

And dog bites girl in face WTH! Aren't you "suppose" to have a higher level of skill than JQP? More dog, more responsibility...I thought they went hand in hand??

Now the dogs are paying the price? Maybe more Police departments should switch to using King Sheppard's and Shilos? Maybe that's more there speed. Just sucks!

Maybe start another stat, if your department has to put down more than x number of K9's over X number of months. "NO" you can't have a K9 unit!!!!!!!!!!


My two cents.
I agree. I am wondering how the girl got close enough for the K9 to bite her face. Sounds to me like a case of handler responsibility. Our K9 is always kenneled or on leash, separated from children not from his family. Such a shame, seems like a nice dog.

Report (local comedian...) on local police dogs here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeDXiS8Yeho

Notice the lack of out.. hmm.

selzer Certainly not a pro.

Been to a demo done at a GSDCNO show presentation for Hero dogs where the K-9 handler doing the talking definitely said the dogs are trained to go for the extremities.

If this is true, a bite to the face on a child is disturbing. The dogs trained for this sort of work need to have solid nerves, and be able to work on lead and off lead. If they are going to bite a child like that... I don't know. I suppose they will assess the dog. If this same dog bites another child, possibly disfigures a child, what do you say to the parent? "Yes, we knew the dog did this before, but..." It not only sounds like a lawsuit in the making, but it sounds like the best way to turn off the community on the program. And a lot of programs survive only because of support of the community.

Blitzkrieg1 Some of them just arent social..with anyone..doesnt mean they are crappers per say.

Then again seeing first hand the people some of the local PDs get dogs from and the quality of said animals..its not all that surprising.

You would think it wouldnt cost to much to hire a training consultant for evaluations and training..

Pax8 Hard to say whether euthanasia is called for without more info. I don't know about a face bite being evidence of any intent to kill. It makes me think of the video of the reporter that leaned over the k9 and got bit in the face. But again, hard to tell without knowing circumstances.
