Wang Liming said, compared with people, dog’s life is short, generally only 10 to 15 years. “10-year-old dog is equivalent to almost 70-year-old man,” a police dog of the service for five to seven years, two years old is the dog of the most effective age.

Selected dogs

“With the selection of the reason is the same.”

“Training dogs before, the choice of dog is learning, with the selection of the reason is the same,” Liming said the prime-time dog training is usually between the ages of six months of age to one, selected mainly to see the dog when the dog’s nervous type is excited, there is no desire to take the title, eyes have Aura and so on.

“There are no bad dogs, only dog training unqualified staff.”

When training dogs, dog training staff is the key to caring for dogs and patience, to understand the behavior of the dog language, the most important thing is to talk about principles.

The first step, affinity with dogs, the establishment of attachment relationships. Generally, three to six months old puppy when training dog handlers with the establishment of such attachment relationship, the fastest this process about two weeks’ time, there is no absolute, because people were dogs vary.

The second step, the initial number of obedience training courses, such as traveling, sitting, lying, etc., this step usually takes three months. Dog’s memory is easily forgotten, not to say that this training is over finished, but also need to constantly re-training to be consolidated.

The third step, practical training courses, such as flutter bite and found drugs, explosive devices, identification and so on. At this time the dog needs training dog handlers according to the characteristics of sub-professional courses: If the dog’s excitement is high, the sense of smell is very sensitive, then the training dog handlers may be toxic or explosive devices to search the direction of the dog training; if the dog is very fierce, so the dog training members may go on patrol, rushed to train the dog bite; if other aspects of the dog in general, only the sense of smell particularly prominent, then training the dog to find Bloodhound Committee direction.

The fourth step, after passing the examination appeals to use. After more than six months of professional training, dog training for dog handlers to the pre-assessment, assessment failed to continue training until qualified so far. “It is not standard, they can only eliminate, but this is very rare,” Liming said.
