How old a police dog has to be to start training?
There are many different kinds of dogs used in police work. They may be trained in tactics or detection. Tactics dogs protect their human police partners and may be trained… to track and/or apprehend suspects. They may be trained to search buildings for suspects. They may work in corrections facilities. Detector dogs may be trained to search for narcotics, bombs, lost people, accellerants, cadavers, or contraband. The specific type of work the dog does determines how long training takes. k9
There are many different kinds of dogs used in police work. They may be trained in tactics or detection. Patrol dogs protect their human police partners and may be trained …to track and/or apprehend suspects. They may be trained to search buildings for suspects. They may work in corrections facilities. Detector dogs may be trained to search for narcotics, bombs, lost people, accellerants, cadavers, or contraband. The specific type of work the dog does determines how long training takes.. Training a police canine takes years. Most police departments import their dogs from Europe that have been trained in a sport such as Schutzhund, KNPV, or French Ring. They then modify the training that the dog has already received for street work. A police canine is trained in obedience, bite work, tracking, agility, handler protection, detection (Narcotics, or EOD). A lot goes into the training, most police canines are around - at least 2 years old before the canine is trained enough to hit the street.. For some drug sniffing dogs, you put the drug into a towel that has no scent of it's own, then let the dog sniff the towel, then you hide the towel, then tell the dog to find the towel which you have cleverly hidden with other towels that have other things wrapped up in it. Later you move to different towel, then in a long time, soak the towl in perfume and hide it. After a VERY long training period, your dog will be able to sniff out anything you train him or her to find. 3-5 years is the norm depending on the trainability of the dog. Usualy the dog would be obtain Shutzenhund titles 1, 2 and 3 then obtain tracking and/or Police dog endorsement. If you are interested in your dog learning advanced obedience and protection skills, I would recommend that you join a Shutzenhund club in your area as a good place to start. Until it is determined that they are thoroughly trained to do their duties AND are under the complete control of ther handlers. It can take up to 2 hours, if done correctly that is. Hi! It can depend on the breed of the dog. However, for the most part, the training starts when they are 6 weeks old and continues throughout their career. Each dog is trained usually 15 months to 3 years by the time they are assigned to a handler. It really depends on what exactly you want them trained for, but some dogs are able to be fielded in three years' time. The average police dog is trained for a span of several years. However, the exact amount of time depends on what the dog's job is and what breed of dog it is. The exact requirements for a police dog's training will differ from place to place and on the type of work the dog is trained to do, for example, whether a dog will be used to assist in criminal apprehension or will primarily be used for detection. However, most police dogs begin training at about one year old. The basic full time training program can be as little as six to eight weeks, depending on the dog and its ability. Weekly training sessions typically follow so long as the dog is in service, which can be up to 8 or 9 years.
u have to at least be done with high school then after ur done with high school u can go to ur local police station and talk to them..
During the selection process for a police dog, they are given obediance and general training at 5 or 6 months of age, including using loud noises to get them used to gun shots… on the job. At about 6 months of age they are intoduced to their "specialty" training.

Guide dogs are hand picked as puppies or bred for the discipline. Only people who do this as a career pick the puppies and complete their training. Although people may be "pup…py raisers". This is only until the dog is one. However, guide dog training starts really the moment they are born - they're handled and socialized and exposed to everything people can think of as young as they can be. Pretty much from day one. All service dogs must complete a strict obedience course which teaches the basics, housebreaking, sit, down, up, stay, etc. This stage can last 3 months to a year depending on the number of command taught. The next stage is Public Access where the dog is trained how to behave in public, this stage can last up to a year. The final stage is where the dog is trained it's tasks, whether it be hearing, guide or medical. The entire process, depending the dog and it's tasks, lasts at least one to over three years. Seeing Eye Dogs take exactly 27 months and 27 days. Usually right when they leave their mom, they get weaned and when they start eating real puppy food after a few weeks or less go to the organization to learn how to be a guide dog and wait until a handler gets them and then they go to classes. The day their born.
1st Answer: The average police officer that drives down the street every once in a while cannot. However the police officer that works with K9 can. It's most likely that the…y can and will not though for safety reasons and other reasons. However I am sure you can try to research it online if you need to. I am sure it is hard and will hurt if you are not careful. 2nd Answer: Why do you want your dog trained to bite? That is some serious stuff and unless you have your dog under complete control, could cause some serious problems along the way & someone may end up being injured. You should first of all take your dog to a good obedience class (can locate them through your local Animal Shelter or ask your Veterinarian). You also need to know if your dog has the correct temperament to do this. Shutzhund is a good training method but hard to find the training classes. It teaches complete control with a protection dog. Very few police departments use this way anymore and it is a shame as all you see is a completely out of control dog barking his head off & when let off lead, just attacks the arms where the sleeve was located which they train with. With Shutzhund they MUST learn complete obedience & be under CONTROL at all times, then Tracking and then Protection. It is a truly beautiful site to see these dogs work after trained. There are different levels of Shutzhund that a dog can earn, Shutzhund 1, Shutzhund II & Shutzhund III. Your dog has to pass a temperament test first before he can even be entered into these classes. If your dog is too shy, it could seriously damage your dog's mental status or if too aggressive the same results. You MUST have a stable (in mind and body) dog to start with. Don't forget you need to be trained too! Go to obedience classes first. Use a 6 foot lead and a choke chain. Measure your dog's neck and add on another 2 inches to get the correct size choke chain. Good luck.
Depends on the country and the type of police. Some dogs are trained purely through body language.
It really depends on what specific field they are trained in :/
Easy get the training stuff from the store and then get the treats so you can treat your dog when it is good
The k9 unit
yes! definentaly needed to be trained to go on command and what to do in different situations
Obedience training can begin at any age. Dog show training, primarily the skills of heeling and staying, is a progression form basic training skills. The sooner socialization …with other dogs the better.
The dog is trained not to just smell, but to smell drugs and poison and stuff like that so the police have evidence to who ever they are searching, its the same with those air…port dogs that sniff through your suitcase for any unwanted items like wine or drugs. Hope that helped!
