How 2 Become - A Police Dog Handler: Book

The 'How To Become A Police Dog Handler' is a guide that will provide you with insider information on how to get one of the most sought after jobs within the Police Force! Full of insider tips and advice, and brought to you by a retired Police Dog Handler with 20 years experience, it will guide you through the selection process and help you to pass at the very first attempt!


Police dogs are crucial to a Police Officer's work. They carry out many essential tasks during their service as working dogs in the community. The police dog is a highly trained animal, many of which are German Shepherd Dogs. Although other breeds, such as Labradors and Spaniels, are used for their scenting abilities to locate drugs, arms and explosives. Doberman’s, Rottweilers and Weimaraners are also used for a variety of purposes.


Police dog handlers must be prepared to exercise and care for the dog whilst off duty. All police handlers need to be experienced police officers because you need to know the operational and legal implications about what you are doing at each incident and why. Obviously, you must be confident around dogs. There is an element of running and lifting your dog over fences, often whilst wearing boots and body armour, so you must be relatively fit.


"This job one of the most exciting and challenging careers that an individual can undertake within the police."


Give yourself every chance of success with this definitive guide that covers every part of the Police Dog Handler selection process.

TIPS FROM A SERVING POLICE DOG HANDLER 


"Work hard and get a good few years' experience as a police constable before specialising; this will give you the insight and skills needed in dog handling. Other forces like the RAF and Army can train you to be a dog handler, but if you want to be out day-to-day on dog-handling operations, I would recommend a career with the police. This guide will show you EXACTLY how to become a Police Dog Handler."
