Nose work training and games, with other different types of tools to work with, can change the attitude of a dog around humans and other dogs over time.

What is K9 Nose Work?

Nose work helps dogs to calm down, and allows dogs to use their natural ability to detect a scene and then hunt the source! which puts smart dogs to work and give them a sense of purpose.

When a dog is trained, he can find one of three scents from anywhere you can possibly have hidden it.

When the dog competes at the end of the training; he has to detect scents in four elements exterior, interior, vehicles, and containers.

Nose work is important for dogs, However, it is not necessarily taught dogs to obey their owners or at their workplace.
Dogs are not at all always taught nose work for professional scent detection work.

This sport has made life’s of dog owners easy and was found by NACSW (National Association of Canine Scent Work).

Their main goal is “to make the activity and sport of K9 Nose Work safe, fun and fair for virtually every dog and dog lover.”
They conduct Odor Recognition Tests and K9 Nose work Trials, authorize activities, and train certified instructors. The founders are enthusiastic about building a community of avid god lovers and people who love dog sports competitions.

Why Nose work training is the best thing?

Searching activities and sports using the sense of smell, are designed in a way in which your dog can still play if your dog can’t run and jump like a puppy, or it’s raining outside!

This is a fantastic thing for older dogs, with less physical activities.

Your dog can wait in the car where he is the happiest and the calmest;
can only be brought when it’s time for him to hunt the scent.

Everyone knows how important it is for dogs who tend to unleash, to take nose work activities and tasks as their play.

  • Try to find a teacher that will actively host and take part in nose work events and trials
  •

Reading Time: 4 minutesOne of the fascinating aspects of the Police force is trained dogs and their handlers known as K9 Dog Units.

The use of dogs for hunting is dated back to Roman times, and they were inducted in law enforcement over a hundred years ago.

The bloodhounds helped in search of Jack and the Ripper in 1888;
soon after that the dogs were properly trained for the police by the Europeans.

K9 Dog Units are the main asset of police force across the United States, but the question is

where do they come from or how they are trained?

In this article, we will answer these questions and have a look inside how these K9 Dog Units are trained and maintained.

How does any dog become a Police Dog?

german shepherd police dog k9 units

K9 dogs are carefully selected by one of two ways:

  1. One option is that a green dog is purchased having age between 7 to 14 months with basic training based on obedience.
  2. This green dog is sent on a training period of 4 to 12 weeks.
  3. The second way is to buy a fully trained dog which is trained by the officer assigned for this purpose. The selection process depends upon the purpose for which the dog is used for or how much funding is available to be invested by the Police Department.

These K9 units extremely demanded by the officers and they work hard to get one, and for this purpose, they also obtain dog training.

But to build a relationship and trust between the K9 unit and his handler is one of the most challenging steps in this process.

Before assigning them specific duties of:

  1. bomb detection,
  2. patrol
  3. narcotic

The officer and dog both are certified by an independent organization.

What does Police Dog training entail?

K9 dog units are trained for single or dual purpose service:

  • Single purpose dogs are used for personal protection, backups or tracking.
  • The dual purpose dogs are more popular and adequately trained to do everything as compared to single-purpose dogs with the ability to detect narcotics or explosives.

The main reason the police dogs are trained for a single purpose is that they are unable to communicate with the officer through words.

The police protocol for explosives is entirely different as compared to narcotics.

Why police dogs are trained with German commands?

Due to the fact, the service dogs are trained in German, mostly so it will be easier for owners to have more control over them.

Well trained dogs can respond to every one command irrespective of their owner;
But the German language is used for extra precaution.

How does the K9 Dog unit identify a Threat?

Dogs usually follow a “drunk uncle scenario,” and they follow the body language of their handlers to make a judgment call.

If the officer is tensed or backing up the dog will read the body language of the handler and react more aggressively either by command or by judging the scene.  But if the handler is relaxed and walking towards prospect, the dog will be relaxed.

Are K9 Dogs aggressive all the time or loving too?

rottweiler aggressive dog barking

K9 dogs can be both loving and aggressive depending upon the situation.

Most people have a wrong perception regarding their all-time aggression as protectors and this cannot be kept as pets.

But in fact, they can be loving too they tend to remain alert as they are trained for this particular reason;
In other words, Protection.

How to become a successful dog trainer?

The successful K9 dog units depend upon the skills of their trainers.

They made them ignore the smell of dog food, birch trees, and tennis balls and catch drugs like heroin.

The training of dogs starts when they are at the age of 8-10 months.
The training of K9 dogs to detect is a big deal which can go up to six months.

Certain breeds for K9 unit’s training

The two races are selected for K9 dog units’ training that can be served for military purpose or protection works.

The two main breeds that are selected for K9 Dog training are:

  1. Belgian Shepherd Malinois
  2. German Shepherd

The sub-type of German shepherd includes giant schnauzers, Labrador retrievers that are common for police jobs.

The reason they are preferred for training because they have specific traits that come in their bloodline.

Other than these particular traits they need to be smart and more social because they have to interact with all sorts of persons.

Is gender important factor during their selection?

A selection of dogs for K9 dog units based upon their gender is a highly debated topic.

In reality, the reaction of both male and female dog remained extraordinary in their service;

But every dog has its personality.

  • In fact, male dogs are more aggressive because they are always “on.”
  • On the other hand, female dogs can become stubborn once they made up their minds not to comply.

Do K9 Dog Units respond to Siren?

The siren and lights training is not included in dog training. But, they are smart enough to respond to siren and lights as almost every dog goes excited when the lights and siren go off.

In this article, I will share some tips on how to communicate with your dog in the right way.

With the evolution of human beings, dogs have groomed with us. They grew with us, they evolved with us. In other words, they are the carriers of our history. They are the other perspective of our history.

Many breeds started in Germany. When the Romans were about to take on the world, they came to Germany with their dogs, guarding the cattle left behind. Dogs were there in the world wars as well. Just like human beings, dogs have also changed their appearances and got themselves institutionalized, modernized and they improved their behavior.

A dog is man’s best friend and is the part and parcel of our days and this is one of the reasons why dogs should be given attention and taken care of properly.

Look for what and how you are speaking

DOG TRAINING COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR DOG

According to a research study any dog can pick up 165 words, and that’s a little too much. Which indicates that among all the words we speak, they do understand and get the meaning of what we are feeling or doing.

They are great observers, and that is how they look out for you no matter what. So use your voice properly to communicate with your dog. As puppies are prone to high pitched sounds are familiar with fewer decibels sound pitches. Thus they can hear women very well. They get excited with attentive words because that is what they crave all day long.

Don’t just negate your dog

NO

In the attempt to wisely communicate with your dog don’t just negate them. Find alternatives to a big NO. Rather than telling your pooch “No!” or shouting at them, your fundamental preparing prompts can illuminate your puppy which practices are alluring and which are unfortunate.

Rather than “no!” attempt: Ask them to”Sit!” or to “Leave it!” For instance, when your puppy hops up on you to state “hi,” state “Sit!” This just ever implies a certain something—put your butt on the ground.

So for this situation, you’re telling your pooch you don’t care for the hopping, and sitting would tackle the issue. On the rare chance that your pooch is nosing around excessively near the pizza on your plate, say “Leave It!” This just ever makes them mean—move far from that attractive item.

It advises your puppy how to change their conduct from something you don’t care for, to something you do.

Give them that cuddle they deserve it

your dog best friend

The use of hugging and kissing is a great way to communicate with your dog. the new little dog appears to lick-lick-lick all of you the time, similar to a kissing crazy person.

You may consider kissing solely a declaration of adoration and love. However, even among individuals, a kiss likewise can imply regard instead of veneration. Pooches and little dogs demonstrate their affection in different ways.

Licking is rather used to indicate reverence, regard, and an announcement that, “I am no risk.” Subordinate puppies lick an increasingly overwhelming pooch—or person’s—face or side of the mouth as a settlement motion.

On the off chance that you or your youngster endeavor to mirror this doggy flag and “kiss” the canine on or close to the mouth or eyes, in pooch language, this discloses to him that you’re accommodating to him. That could cause you both harm. Just be careful with the strangers as the dog might attack if they don’t know a person and they try to kiss them.

I always fantasized about having powers as Veterans, most of the time. Because it would be useful information to know exactly what animals think and feel.

You must be thinking. Why? Let me explain, for instance, does the slightest bit of rain started to fall by barking or hiding in the corner at the vacuum cleaner? However, because of new advances in dog science, I now know it, or not my dog loves me. I do not think I am ever going to know answers to these questions.

The scientist also discovered that because dogs and humans have been deeply linked through the past in a surprising and secret way, dogs have developed unique ways to express their love for humans, like studies, which have found that dogs have certain strengths, or improved physical senses. 

The signs are very subtle and not always clear, but all you need to know is the small surprising and secret ways proving the love for you of your dog, as we break into this exclusive one.

Majority dog owners love their animals and sometimes regard him like their own family member. By analyzing the behavior of your dog, you can know if he likes you with the following points. How far, then, if so! 

 

Here 9 evidence that your dog says ‘I love you.’

1- Glaring into your eyes

When a dog looks right in the eye, it looks as if he hugged you by the look, according to the dog expert Brian Hare. However, could we say the same thing the opposite? Fortunately, this question is answered by several surprising and secret ways.

A sign of great affection, in other words! 

Several studies have demonstrated that if your dog glares at you while playing, cuddling, or at least shares a moment. When a dog looks at you while you are both playing or just cuddling with each other, the oxytocin is released. The same hormone lies between new mothers and their babies. Go home and have a staring contest with your pooch if you want to test love with your dog. Something will feel off, and he will look away for its embarrassing. Try to naturally keep an eye on him and see how he responds during your ordinary routines.

2- Yawning while you yawn

Do we know yawning is contagious but isn’t it only for people? Certainly, dogs are so closely related to men that they very often yawn to the people they love.

A recent study has shown that when a human yawn comes from just seeing someone else’s yawn, it shows empathy for him. Difficult for dogs to say ‘I love you. However, it means, in any case, that something happens between the two people and there is a connection!

3- Receptiveness

In this case, it makes me remember the song, ‘Lean on me’ which means to endorse and offer support and here the dogs want the same sort of safety. A dog is sometimes leaning on a person because he is anxious, because he wants you to do something, or go somewhere. Receptiveness, however, is also a symbol of love. Even if you are relieved by pure nervousness your dog does it. Because he thinks of you as someone who can protect him.

The majority of dog lovers know that pups have food motivations. 
Nevertheless, once a dog is eating all of its food, his next action can mean what is most important to him apart from eating. Your dog can sometimes have to do his business right after lunch, but watch how he reacts in the morning and in the evening. If after one of these meals he is hugging you, then there is definite puppy love at the end.

5- Lifting and wiggling eyebrows

We believe that a dog’s facial expressions are a much stronger indicator. 

In a recent Japanese study, dogs, a stranger, a dog toy and an item they did not like were introduced to their parent. When the dogs saw their parent, their eyebrows especially their left rose at once, and when they saw a stranger, their eyebrows were moved much less, except for the right brow movement. 

However, the dogs moved their left ear back as they saw a piece they knew and had tied. Their right ear shifted if there was an item they do not like. The study shows that if you engage dog with something they do not know or disagree with, the dog is more reserved.
We think we can read a dog by its tail, but its facial expressions are a much more powerful indicator.

6- Seeing you leave

Some people think it is a sign they love if a dog panicked when their owner left. However, this is not necessarily true. When you leave, your dog panics are more of an indication of separation than of your love. 

When a dog enters he wants you to leave, that is to say, when you leave, they are calm, it means the dog loves and trusts you and is confident that you will come back.

7- Freaking out gesture

When we come home, we all feel special, and our dog is welcomed as a crazy kangaroo by its tail wagging a favorite toy in tow. Moreover, we love it because a dog shows you his love for you, and love is in its true form. It is a very distinctive way.

8- Sleeping in your room

Another way to find out if your dog loves to watch where he wants to sleep. It is part of a big dispute, but he definitely loves you if your dog wants to sleep in his bed— although you do not allow.
It is good to test his loyalty if a dog wants to sleep in your bed because he does not want to be split off.

9- Bring his favorite toy to you

It does not only mean your dog wants to play. If your pup brings you his favorite and most popular toy. While it is a sign of affection for playing with you, your dog can also mean that he thinks of you as his leader if his favorite ball comes to you.

Therefore, he wants to make you pleased with his finest possession, whether it is a noisy toy or a well-worn Frisbee. He thought you would like that, as much as he did.

  • Hurdles:

Start with hurdles of lower heights. Initially, it will be fun for your dog. When you give your command to jump, he will definitely do it and enjoy it. Once he is used to jumping, make him jump a little higher hurdle and then soon as practice makes a man perfect, practice will make your dog perfect.

You can use your dog’s favorite treats to attract him over the side of the hurdle.

  • Palisade:

To train your dog to Palisade, again start with a low frame in which you and your dog can handle well.  For Palisade, it’s important that your dog goes all the way up and comes down all the way and not jump off once he gets up on the frame. 

For beginners, you can hold your dog over the little frame, so your dog gets to know what he has to do. Once he gets it, teach him your command of going up, staying and running down.  And most importantly, not jumping off the frame.

Once he is used to the low frame, increase the height of the frame and eventually make him do it on the real one. Your dog will be working a lot. You better give him your love in between, or otherwise, he will be exhausted!

  • Long Jumps: 

After learning jumping over hurdles, your dog can learn long jumps easily. For a wider jump, keep an obstacle of a lower height which is longer in a vertical position. Your dog will learn not to step on the hurdle but over it. He will adjust his jump accordingly. Once he gets used to it, make the height of the hurdle higher.

This is a test of obedience. To train your dog for it, make the dog sit on the left of you. Hold the leash from its end in one hand and closed from the end towards his collar, on other hands. Make him walk while giving treats then command him to sit. Do this over and over, and your dog will learn to walk right next to you in complete obedience. 

  • Long Stay:

First, make your dog sit, give him the command to stay while giving him a 100% attention, no scrolling down your Facebook or your dog will come to you. Once he has stayed for a minute or so release him and rewards him with your love. Slowly increase the ‘stay’ time.

  • Thrown Retrieve:

Start off by throwing fancy stuff to make it interesting. Throw and command to catch. He will find it and will come back to you. Then start changing objects and put small hurdles in his way to make him more efficient in doing so.

Will you refuse food that you love? Not at all. But you do train your dog do to this. That is a bit unfair you know. Anyways, to train your dog, places treats in front of him, when he comes to have one, give him a clear command not to. You have to show a little strictness in your behavior. Once he has succeeded in resisting, offer him some! Continue, and he will learn.

Train your dog for level 3:  Protection

  • Defense of Handler:

To train your dog to be a good guard, teach him to bark when he sees a stranger. Then, teach him the command ‘attack.’ For this, place a toy and command attack in an aggressive way, so he knows this is something serious and not to play with. Once he learns to attack you need to teach him the command of ‘back off’ to stop the attacking.

  • Search and Escort:

To start off with, take someone along with you. Make him drop any of his belongings and go farther away. Make your dog sniff his belongings. His sniffing power will be his guide.
