Police Officer Dog Name Considerations

A police dog, also referred to as a K-9, has been specifically trained to assist law enforcement. They function in a wide range of capacities such as protecting their partners, tracking, searching for drugs and explosives, locating missing people, and finding crime scene evidence. For over a hundred years, dogs have been used successfully in law enforcement around the world. One of the most infamous cases of police dogs being used was when British police turned to Bloodhounds to try to track Jack the Ripper through the streets of London. In 1899, law enforcement officials started to officially train police dogs to work alongside officers in the field. Their loyalty and selfless devotion quickly earned them a reputation. By 1910, Germany had over 600 specially trained police dogs.

It was not until the early 1970s that the use of police dogs became commonplace in the United States. Nowadays, all branches of American law enforcement use dogs. They are used not only at the federal level but also by cities and municipalities. Think about the breed of dog you have chosen as your companion. Do they have the K-9 persona?

Police dogs have the same rights as their human counterparts. It is a crime to attack or kill a police dog and that is punishable in the same fashion as if they were a human police officer. Canines are now outfitted with bullet proof and ballistics vests for added protection. They are even bestowed with badges. .

Dogs who are used as police dogs typically live with their partner in a home environment when not on duty. This gives the canine a well-rounded lifestyle that is emotionally fulfilling and not all work. It is also believed that allowing the dog to live with its human police officer partner helps forge an even deeper bond that is required in the field during life and death decisions. Bestow your pet with a police officer name in order to honor police dogs worldwide.
