Q. Is it unrealistic to expect a police service dog to be operational at 11-13 months?
Dear Mr. Frawley,

I was wondering if you "believe in" the z PS line of a dogs as one of the better line of police service dogs to select in choosing a patrol dog. Additionally, though I understand that all dogs mature differently, is it unrealistic to receive a police prospect at 6 months and expect him to be operational at 11 to 13 months???

I ask this specifically because I was just informed that a local (Georgia) agency currently utilizes a 10 month old dog for patrol work and I thought that it was a little young for my taste but again understand dogs can mature differently.

Thank you in advance Sir.
Solomon

A. I never heard of ZPS bloodlines and I have bred more police service dogs than anyone in the United Sates.

Expecting an 11 month old to be an active patrol dog is the dumbest thing I have heard in years. Truly stupid.

The directed search is one of the more important exercises that police K9 handlers must teach their dog. It is used in building searches and areas searches. If a service dog is to work safely off leash it must know the directed search. In todays society K9 handlers must have complete control over their dogs at all times. The training program for the directed search is an excellent way to accomplish this goal.

Using a Narcotics detection dog (drug dogs) is "the most unobtrusive method available to search a suspects vehicle, house, or belongings." The goal of every narcotics dog handler should be to eliminate false indications by his dog (an intentional false indication could lead to violation of a persons constitutional rights). This video emphasizes training techniques that will provide you with a dog that not only finds drugs but also a dog that will not false hit on cutting agents and other odors.

If a dog is genetically capable of muzzle fighting, we will show you how to train it to use its body to knock out an individual.

This video was filmed in Alberta, Canada at the police dog training center for the RCMP. The RCMP instructors are the best tracking dog instructors in the world. The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) catch 45% to 50% of all the people they track (this includes suburban and urban tracking). If a suspect runs in the country, they catch 95% of them. If you are a K-9 officer who trains his service dog with food & a ball you know that you only catch 3% or 4% of the people you track.
