Some dogs become rescuers and police?
Normally dogs go to the police and rescue service at the age of three to four months. A service dog taken healthy, easy learner and the human-oriented animals, and for several months daily deal with them.
Dogs rescue and dogs-police different requirements. As told to “Medusa” the Chairman of the Commission on international tests, user and search dogs of the sports Committee of the Russian Federation of handlers and lecturer, Russian state agrarian University-MTAA named after Timiryazev Marianne Smooth, in order that the dog became a member of the rescue team, she must be able to adapt to adverse conditions, to exercise autonomy, to navigate in unfamiliar territory, to be hardy and healthy. Also important is its size. According to Smooth, the big dog harder and more dangerous to move the rubble. “Sometimes when conducting search and rescue operations, the rescuers have on hand to carry dogs, which, of course, easier to do if the dog is not very large,” — said Smooth.
For dogs-much depends on the police Department, which will serve as an animal.
To dogs, who will be looking for drugs or explosives, may be brought to the same requirements as to the dogs rescue, special attention will be paid to the quality of smell.Marianne Gladkokrashenye of the Commission on international tests, user and search dogs of the sports Committee of the Russian Federation of handlers and lecturer, Russian state agrarian University-MTAA named after Timiryazev
“But dogs that work in police investigation, all of the above, yet you must also have protective qualities, so that if necessary they can detain the offender,” — said Smooth.

As a guide, and physicians?
The most important thing for dogs not to show any kind of aggression.
This means that the dog is protecting its territory, food or the host, can not become a therapist and guide. Also the animal must perfectly obey his master and not afraid of people. Therapist can become an adult dog, provided that she is healthy mentally and physically, and ready for a long workout.
“When this dog walks into a room full of strangers, she experiences delight and runs to hug everyone” — told the “Medusa” founder of the Foundation “Not just dogs” Natalia Bystrov. Furthermore, guide dogs must not be afraid of loud noises and public transportation.

They really can be fired for friendliness?
However, if the dog has not passed certification or its nature interferes with work. However, most often fired for animal aggression. “Even those dogs that are trained to detain the offender should not be unfriendly to people outside their service,” explains Smooth.
The dog-helper can be suspended, if the owner notices that the animal is experiencing stress. According to Bystrova, burnout — the most common cause layoffs among dogs-therapists. “When the dog ceases to feel like their work, she needs to stop working. However, as human beings,” says Bystrov.
It does not operate? They are not bad?
For dogs there is no difference between training and work in the real world. She sees the search for victims and chasing a criminal as a game. “The dog will go into the rubble, not because the person can die if not found. She happily and eagerly looking for the smell of it, shows the place and won”, — quotes the Smooth head of the search and rescue dog service group “Tsentrospas” Ilya Zaslavsky.
Smooth believes that to provide the dog the pressure and force her to work under threat of punishment — is unacceptable.
Very often dogs are friends suffer the “syndrome of learned helplessness”. Animals don’t experience pleasure from their work, they are just not used to react to various stimuli and I think that you can not manage your life.Natalia Bystrovozvodimye Fund “Not just dogs”
“They become a tool in the hands of the people, and, of course, this is pure exploitation. We this approach is not strongly supported,” says Bystrov.
I want to train your dog at home. What do I do?
Zoopsychologists and dog experts believe that dogs it is important to prove yourself in any case. “Most owners aren’t aware of the dog’s needs, intuitively replacing it with “to love and to hold on the couch.” Love is very good, but the fact of life for dogs are as important as for a person to find themselves in life,” says the Medusa is a specialist in behaviour change in school Pi&Bo Hope pigareva. According to her, if the dog is not to find a deal or “work”, the animal will choose it yourself: start “vacuuming” out on the streets attacking other dogs to RAID the apartment and howl from boredom.
A dog can not only learn tricks, but also to take her search games. “Our dogs were in search of on a professional level, they can find several kinds of drugs — said pigareva. — Taught them not real drugs, but in a neutral and safe simulators”.
With the help of “work” you can also adjust the behavior of the pet to get the aggressiveness and uncertainty and to teach your dog to overcome their fears.
Also there are many organizations that cooperate with volunteers, teach dogs, and then offer to pass the assessment on the suitability of a particular service.
“To teach the dog serious skills in the home if the classes have nothing to do with safety dogs or people around them,” — said pigareva.
