Police Dogs

History Of Police Dog Training written by: linsly12

 

 

Dogs have been used for law enforcement, including warfare, for thousands of years. Police dog training hasn't always been a priority. Early canines were chosen for strength, endurance, and ferociousness. They were considered as the asset if they didn't cost money or require special training.

Bulldog and Mastiff type dogs were used in war by Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Britons, and Romans. They were sentries, guard dogs, and attack dogs. During the Middle Ages, Bloodhounds tracked down outlaws. A Newfoundland accompanied Lewis and Clark on their overland expedition across America.

Soldiers of the American Revolution and the Civil War brought along their dogs as camp guards. Expanded duties during World War I included red cross dogs, messengers, and hauling ammunition.

World War II dogs did all the above and more. They worked as scouts, joining soldiers on patrol, alerting them to enemy soldiers nearby. Japanese dogs guarded warehouses. German dogs guarded prison camps. In America, patriots donated dogs for military service.

In 1859, Belgium officers first used dogs to patrol the streets. Soon thereafter, Germany, France, Austria, and Hungary added dogs to their forces. These early dogs were aggressive; inspiring fear, protecting their handlers, tracking and tackling suspects and guarding evidence. By 1910 Germany had police dogs in over 600 cities.

The United Kingdom followed the trend. Constables were authorized to take their own dogs on patrol in 1914. A few years earlier in 1908, the Northern Eastern Railway was deploying Airedales as guard dogs to prevent theft.

In the United States, local police departments were slow to recognize the benefits. The 1970's saw the introduction of dogs. Today they work in every city and many rural locales. Often they're protected with ballistic vests. Laws make it a felony to injure or kill a law enforcement dog. More than 300 Search and Rescue dogs aided the rescue efforts after the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Besides search and rescue, modern day dogs protect their handlers, apprehend criminals, and detect explosives and narcotics. German Shepherds and Belgium Malinois are popular for guarding and chasing. Some join search and rescue teams. Bloodhounds and Beagles with their superior sense of smell are best at search and rescue and detection of illicit materials.

Europe is the breeder and trainer of choice. A two-year program of obedience, agility and endurance training narrows the field to the best, who then proceed to specialty instruction. To make the cut, a dog must be obedient, trustworthy, intelligent, forceful and strong.

They're trained to be forceful and intimidating, but not vicious. They're socialized family dogs who live with their handlers. They don't know they are chasing criminals. It's a game to be played on command. Police dog training is ongoing, usually scheduled for eight hours every two weeks, to keep skills sharp and aggression in check.
 


The fact of the matter is that the breeds of dogs used for police service can viciously inflict serious injuries and even death. If you or a loved one was subject to what you believe is an excessive and unwarranted force and injury due to an overzealous police dog, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer who specializes in dog bites. Ideally, the attorney will be able to prove that your attack was unwarranted and that you are due appropriate compensation for medical treatment and care, lost time at work and possibly pain and suffering

Army Dogs

4 Tips for Training Dogs like Army Dogs are Trained written by: estherariplas 4 Tips for Training Dogs like Army Dogs are Trained

Army dogs do a variety of work with the military these days. While some have been treated poorly, many are treated a national heroes. They act as sentries, scouts, messengers, search and rescue, and chemical (explosive) detection. So, how did these dogs get trained and end up in the field with active troops?

Positive Reinforcement is Vital

Good behavior in dogs needs to be positively reinforced during training just like army dogs are rewarded. Think of the dog you're training just like a person. We all like to be thanked and appreciated for doing a good job, so do dogs. Dogs will accept warm words and a petting. Others might need treats to feel appreciated, some others might just want to play fetch. The thing the trainer needs to do is find out what the motivator is for their dog and then use that regularly. Army dog training experts suggest making an audible association with a good behavior along with the reward. A couple dozen times a day for a week and your dog will know that the sound means reward and will look around expectantly.

Punish, but Appropriately

Many training camps are against punishment. But those who train army dogs use it when they need to do so. It doesn't have to be big, and should always be in line with the bad behavior you are trying to change. It can be as little as a disapproving sound and stern look with some dogs. Army dogs generally have a stricter training regime so might even have a specific type of collar in use. This may work well with your dog as well during training, especially if the stern look and sound aren't working.

Exercise Mentally and Physically

Do you work out and eat right? Then you should do the same for your dog. Army dogs have long work days in dangerous situations, but they are still afforded time to get in their exercise, and they eat well. Regularly workouts are a key part of army dog training. They need their time to unwind just like you. If your training is going roughly, it might be that your dog just needs some down time to run about and be a dog. You'll definitely need to give them some play time if they've been crated all day or if you've had them confined to the house through your eight-hour work day. Doing this will make them far more responsive when it's time to continue training again.

Be the Alpha

Army dogs always know who is in charge, and it's not them. You need to be the alpha with your dog as well. When you are actively training your dog, you have to be on point and professional. Things like authority, emotional stability, and leadership are what you should be showing your dog according to trainers of army dogs. They need to understand that you are the one in charge and you have to show that through your posture and movement as well as your voice. When walking your dog tug the leash to keep them next to you. Use your body to block them from doing certain things of going certain ways. You need to continually show them that they need to do what you want them to, and use your body to show them that.

Use these four tips and be consistent in your training. Don't scream and yell, be authoritative. Don't let your dog pull you around. Do reinforce their good behaviors and when necessary, punish their bad ones. Finally, don't forget to let them be dogs and run around and have fun. Everyone needs a little down time. But once that's done, get back to the strict training and your dog will be as well-behaved as some of those army dogs.
