NATGEO ; Alaskan State Troopers and a GSD
I watched an episode of AST ( a reality type COPS show ) on Natgeo last night and there was an interesting scene in it which some of you might have seen. The K9 cop stops an SUV and he has his GSD with him. The GSD is in full leather harness etc but off lead and is put into a STAY DOWN . K9 Trooper is joined by another trooper and as the perp is known to be armed and dangerous, the troopers draw their guns and advance towards the rear of the truck. All the while the dog is barking incessantly and the trooper has to continually say STAY DOWN as the dog keeps half getting up, incing forward and then dropping when he repeats the command.
Now.....I know 0 about this sort of dog training but the Trooper(s) were in a pretty hairy situation and the dog was definitely taking away the K9 troopers attention momentarily on several occasions as he had to keep looking back at the dog.
When it came time to haul the guy out of the truck, one of the troopers had to holster his gun and swap to a taser and the K9 guy then grabbed the dog by the agitation handle or whatever the harness handle is called as they both went in but it looked more like he did it to stop the dog from disobeying the STAY than anything !!
Is this standard for a police dog ? I just would have thought they wold have an EXCELLENT stay and possibly shut the **** up so everyone concentrate and the perp not get riled up ?
To me it really looked like the dog was not fully under control ??
Anyone seen this episode ?
