@Dzg, here are two pups that I have now that both uneqivocally will become PSD when the time comes. The large one is 9 months, and 4 depts want him right now; when he reaches the right age, but he has drive off the charts, environmental sureness , settles, easy to manage in public, but when pushed, bigtime fight. A half brother of another dog; Chris, that is a PSD dog in NJ. The little puppy has been with me for 4 days.....ROCK solid nerve, environmental stuff off the charts for his age, don't take NO stuff off anyone, and plays with my 6 year old grandson all day. Just wanted to give examples of the type of dogs you feel should be Police service dogs. Both of these dogs will have no problems making the transition into civil work with training!
