Chris alerted on burglary suspect last night, 10 up, above the ceiling and in a crawl space, after building was searched by police and declared empty. One suspect got away and police thought their was only one as they were seen fleeing the scene by approaching owner. K9 got there late and officer asked to work the house anyway.....Bingo.
I make these posts to give non law enforcement people an idea at how effective these dogs can be in assisting the police. And if you notice most areas don't involve bite work, but rather nose work. In looking for police candidates there is much more than the dog will bite for real.
nice dog ! "And if you notice most areas don't involve bite work, but rather nose work. In looking for police candidates there is much more than the dog will bite for real." Yes , probably 75 to 85 per cent . But don't fool yourself , if they have to they WILL. I like stories like this.
also love hearing things like this The dog gets the job done

The saga continues.......lol ......yesterday police patrol car passes a car approaching and see suspicious drug like activity going on in car. Patrol car does uturn and puts on lights. The car pulls over and two individuals bail out and run...officer couldn't pursue because there were three others still in car. They call Chris and officer....Chris picks up scent at door of exit and goes to sidewalk and takes off on track. He follows track through two backyards and over to another street where he alerts on a house of known drug activity. Inside the two individuals were found as well as drugs in car and on their person.
Just another day for Chris( joe texted me and said I loooooove this dog...lol)
He won't be three until January......so I think Joe has some good years ahead.
I told him they are going to put a bounty on that dog......lol.
Yeah Ace, I post these things to give many people actual uses of GS today. I want people to understand that when it comes to police work, nerve and training are more important than big time grips and natural aggression(being civil). Yes the dog has to be able to bite and fight, but much more of his work is predicated on his nose and nerve!!! We don't evaluate techniques, we evaluate results.
