K-9 Dogs

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

I think most of us have seen at least one k-9 dog. K-9 dogs are also known as police dogs. These dogs are highly-trained canines. Some of these dogs are also trained by high-rank police officers since they were puppies. These canines are trained to assist in different police and law-enforcement operations.

The official use of K-9 dogs as part of the police force was recognized in Europe in the year 1859, where dogs are used to patrol with the night shift officers. France, Germany, Hungary and Austria followed the trend years after. K-9 dogs have significant roles in search and rescue, public order enforcement, cadaver and various detection tasks.

German Shepherds are known as all-purpose police dogs since they are very effective in both search and rescue, bomb and cadaver sniffing operations. They are also big enough to be attack dogs trained for catching fugitives and protecting the police officer handling them. Other breeds trained to be police dogs are Dogo Argentinos and Doberman Pinschers. Labrador Retrievers and Springer Spaniels are also effective in sniffing out bombs and drugs. Beagle police dogs are also used in airport operations because of their friendly appearance. These police dogs are trained to be calm and unfazed by regular noise from the crowd and environment. These dogs only react to certain triggers or stimuli if they are ordered to do so.

Because of this, German Shepherd puppies for sale are becoming more popular in different puppies online selling sites. German Shepherd and other police puppies for sale are a lot cheaper than trained K-9 dogs. As for example, you can buy an untrained one for £700 but when they are trained they are already sold for £1200.
