Police Dog Training Tricks YOU Can Use

This article is about Police and explosives dogs training but the message in it is very relevant for regular dog owners – like you and I:

“Despite the complicated cases they become involved with, training the dogs is relatively simple, Sgt Roderick said.

“It’s all based on positive rewards. We make it fun for them, we make it a game,” he said.

“They look for something based on a certain smell and if they find it they get a toy or a reward after it.”

He said the training could be adapted to find all manner of substances and that as new drugs and explosives emerge, the dogs can be shown how to find them.

“I still don’t think we have exploited or understand more than 5% of what a dog is capable of,” he said.

“Some of our dogs are capable of detecting nanogramme of substances. Scientists admit they can’t recreate machines that can detect the same amount. It fascinates me even now.”

That’s right – think of your dog as a four-legged toddler: everything needs to be made fun and exciting.

Make your daily training routine (yes – Daily) fun and exciting for your pal and you will be amazed at the results.
