“I saw recently on TV that dogs trained to sniff bombs in Afghanistan are now being used for the same job in Washington D.C. (The dog featured is 4years old). Is it difficult for both the dog & it’s handler to separate from each after working as partners for so long? I would think they would bond closely.
Which gender is best suited?”
LT. E RODRIGUE
“I find it very hard to separate once you have a good bond. I have seen some handler’s and K-9’s go through separation anxiety. Some K-9’s do fine and some may not work with another handler.
Either sex will work depending on the drive.”
