Israel Imports 20 Police Service Dogs From The Czech Republic

2

Israel received 20 police service dogs from the Czech Republic that will be used to capture and neutralize criminal suspects and identify explosives, weapons, drugs and money.

The one-year-old dogs will undergo six-month of training before being integrated with the existing 220 police service canines.

Senior dog trainers and a veterinarian from the police’s animal training unit conducted a thorough search in the Czech Republic for the highly-specialized service dogs.

  1. Gotta love the trainers. I was at their training center several years ago, with a US Department of Defense Delegation. The Israelis told us they train the dogs in Hebrew, and that there is no command for “release”. Once a dog latches on to a target, it won’t let go. It’s jaws have to be pried loose.

    They also have some other nifty techniques they use with the dogs, but I’d rather not mention them.
