A good article with an obvious perspective of what these dogs mean to their handlers and the hardships which come with the partnership.

Plus, who can't love this ???

People should read up on war dogs, the training techniques and such. Pretty fascinating stuff. Some of these dogs were very highly trained for specific tasks.

I was raised by two police officer parents and we had 7 retired K-9s who lived with us, but my parents were NOT K-9 officers. It was a weird upbringing. We were NEVER allowed out of the house without a dog.

I walk a working-line dog for a K9 handler... whenever I want to do a night walk, I always know which dog I want to take along 😆

He's the pet dog of the family but he's 1 year old and so friggin exhuberant that people move to the other side of the street when they see a 120 lb woman reigning in this lunging, leaping beast

Probably some of the most enjoyable times I've had was working with the K9 officers training, testing and qualifying their dogs. It's amazing that only a few of the dogs started in training ultimately have the nerves and drives to complete the training and become real K9 officers themselves. Training the handlers to work a K9 dog is just about as hard too.....some have really thick heads that need adjusting occasionally. Haha. These dogs are real working dogs first then pets as they retire. They never lose their drive and interest in training even as age and injuries creep up on them.
