The German Shepherd in service
Service dogs are working dogs specially trained for police, customs duty or the military. They are used whenever human and technology run up against their limits in crime detection. The respective centres of operations have lists of all available specialised dogs which can be deployed as fast as possible on request – these include protection, tracking and detection dogs. Service dogs also have to be fit to fly, so that rapid transport to the deployment area is possible at all times.
The German Shepherd has been and still is the most popular breed for service dog deployments. Because of its performance and its high willingness for protection and defence, the Shepherd is not only a reliable colleague, but also a loyal partner on four paws.
