This is what the sheriff said in the article that I am wondering about. Sure he wants him to rest but he says-
" "Some people don't understand that, but for him, work day is a stressful day mentally and physically," says Slater, who also houses, bathes and feeds him, providing 24/7 care for his furry partner.
But Odin's time at home doesn't mean time to play fetch.
"It's our family, so he has some interaction with them, but it's limited,” Slater says. “But that's the important thing - to keep their drive where it needs to be, to come out and do the job that they do."
They don't want to reduce his drive. He limits Odin's interaction with his family. Does hanging out on the couch reduce a dog's drive? I cant ask Officer Slater so I am asking police dog trainers here.
