Default Question on K9 dogs

Ok so my question is that do police and / military use both female and male German Shepherds for attacking and drug searching etc. ? Or do they only use Males for that type of work ?

Both. Dogs are chosen on their abilities regardless of sex

Most will use whatever dog/sex passes their selection testing. Some departments/handlers have a preference for males only.

Both, they just have to make it through all the training and test scenarios. If they can do that, they don't care what the sex is.
