Always fun to shoot up stuff.

Ever heard of a Nor’easter? We bayou boys learned real quick out in the plains of West Texas.

K-9 Interview | Readers’ Questions Answered #5

RHETT MATHEWS:

Being a current handler myself, I always get the question, “Why do the dogs come from Europe? And are they already trained?”

 

LT. E. RODRIGUE:

Breeding regulations are a lot stricter in Europe.  Some of these dogs have prior training, but may not be the training you’re looking for, so be very careful.  Some of the dogs come in with outstanding training and some with issues you may never resolve.  There are very dependable breeders and trainers in the stats that would also help you.

 

SHERRY TROOP:

What happens to the dogs after they no longer serve as a K9? Do their officer handlers get to adopt them? Can they integrate into “family” life?

 

LT. E. RODRIGUE:

Our department allows the handlers to adopt their dogs. We have had great success with the dogs integrating into family life. However, I have heard of dogs that could not integrate in family life.

 

SHERRY TROOP:

Just saw a news broadcast about Universal K-9 that trains shelter dogs on “death row”. The trained dogs are then given for free to police dept. So great to hear!! Wondered if you heard of them or deal with them?

 

LT. E. RODRIGUE: 

I haven’t heard of them, but will certainly check them out. Death Row dogs are very dear to me. When I started my first K-9 Academy I worked a German Shepherd, which was rescued by my dad K-9 Sam. K-9 Sam was picked up for killing chickens.

When I started with he did not know how to walk on a leash. I think for the first six weeks I retrieved the ball more than Sam. Then something clicked and he loved his ball. At the end of our academy we were awarded the Top Team award. I learned a lot from old K-9 Sam.

K9

CAROLINE CASH:

How long do most dogs serve as a K9?

 

LT. E. RODRIGUE:

Most dogs work to between eight and ten years of age, depending on their health.

 

SHERRY TROOP:

What other breeds of dogs are used besides shepherds? Are some breeds better suited for the job or is it the personality of the particular dog?

 

LT. E. RODRIGUE:

Belgium Malionois, Dutch Shepared, Labrador Retriever are some of your most popular.  I have seen some mixed breeds out work any pure breed dog.
