K9 Police Dog Training Games: Dogs Are Still Just Dogs Having Fun

Police dogs are trained in a similar way to service dogs. They are taught how to do complicated tasks.

Their actual training involves just games on top of games. The main difference is the complexity and commitment of training. Police dogs can find all sorts of illegal substances with their enhanced sense of smell. These dogs don't know what it is they're looking for. They think they're searching for their favorite toy, ready to have a game of war. The process is repeated. You learn a smell. You lay next to the smell. As it goes on, the scale of the smell increases. The training for cadaver dogs takes the same general shape as finding out any other smell. But a little different. K9s are trained to run and then bite people. They were trained to be aggressive but not to maim. The most confrontational task a police dog is faced with is helping public enforcement. While they achieve big things, police dogs are still just dogs having fun. . .
