I'm being considered as a new patrol K9 handler with my agency and I'm worried about how it will affect my family and current dog. What are your thoughts?
I'm about to be a new K9 handler. When the dog arrives I will have a new baby and two dogs. I'm think about making an outside kennl for my K9 to live in. Is this a good idea?
I was ordered to carry my long gun, and draw down, when approaching a suspect while the dog is apprehending him. Is it safer to have the long gun or unsafer in that situation?

My 3 year old Mal bites solid, but does not like to OUT. When he does out, he goes into a rear guard and bark. Do you have any suggestions?
My police K9 will not take the bite on the street. In training he never hesitates. What can I do to fix this?
We have a few problems with our police K9 concerning his building search not being thorough, possessiveness of the cruiser, etc. Any advice is appreciated.
Is it unrealistic to expect a police service dog to be operational at 11-13 months?
My husband will be getting a new police K9 soon. We already have a dog, so what do we need to do when the new dog comes into the family?
My service dog will not engage the helper in muzzle training?
I have a 9 month old female that is in training for a police service dog. It recently hit a wall when it developed serious problems with slippery floors. What can we do?
