Not a LE K9, but I always joke with people in regards to my FEMA K9, they must think we are the most inept species. " seriously?, ANOTHER one of you got stuck under this stuff???Fine, let's go, I will find them, again. "

So this made me giggle.

David Winners A buddy of mine, long time LE handler, tells stories of his first mal he had. It would spin and bark non stop while on patrol. The dispatchers would know exactly who keyed the mic before he even gave his unit number.

They tried everything they could think if to get him to stop. Leash through the cage to a prong, e-collar... They even installed a piece of plywood trapping him so he couldn't spin. Nothing worked, so he gave up and just learned to deal with it

He's far more experienced now and wouldn't have the same trouble again, but it's funny what dogs will put a new handler through.

:ROFL: Do have to wonder how dogs really look at the things we ask them to do.

DaniFani Our good family friend (works with my spouse) is patrol/tracking K9 officer. He's had his dog for a few years. The dog gets super excited when lights/sirens get turned on, and when the turn signal is on lol. He is pretty vocal most of the time. If anyone does a ride along with him he provides them ear plugs :-). I think the excitement and noise from it just kind of comes with the territory. Good luck and stay safe!!

ladylaw203 why can't they search for things other than what they're trained to
search for?


They are not pets. They are working dogs. They dont "leak" anything LOLOL We choose high drive dogs. They love to work because of the way they are trained. When we take them out of the unit,it is to relieve themselves or work. They learn the routine and are just fine. Scent detector dogs are trained on certain odors. They do not need to get out of the unit and search for anything else
