Are police dogs service dogs?
A police dog, also known as K-9 or K9 (a homophone of canine), is a dog specifically trained to assist members of law enforcement.
Police Departments demand that a dog must first pass a basic obedience training course.
The dogs must be able to respond and obey the commands of their handler without hesitation.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
