This truly sucks! I never had anything too bad happen to my partner but it truly seems that this kind of assault on LEO K9s has escalated in the last few years.
Yes, there are situational handler errors where the dog should never have been deployed. As Jim said (which I agree 100%) deployment if there is a human that's life is in danger. I am of the mindset that it's our job as handlers to determine if the dog is an option for the specific situation. Along with that it is our job to also provide protection to our K9 partner.

If the knife was observed before hand I wouldn't send my dog. Unless, sending the dog would save another persons life. In the case of K-9 Krijger, he saved several lives as the suspect was armed. Generally speaking, if I know a suspect is armed with a knife, I'm going to a gun, not a baton, pepper spray or a dog. However, we assume everyone we deal with is armed, we don't always have that information.
Thank you! Simple direct and to the point!, understood.

LOL ...a different thread perhaps?? The one thing I do know is that the only thing three dog trainers will agree on ... is that one of them is wrong!

And my deepest sympathies to all these officers for the loss of their K9 partners, sometimes life just sucks.

This is devastating. I know it's a dangerous job, but I cry each time I hear of another loss.
