Jmac - Although I agree with your basic idea, I have found that most Police Canines are ultra-conservative and as long as you do what they want you to do, they can be reasoned with. I gave it a 5 just because I'm a rabid Republican.

Mark - While I appreciate the comment (very much) the dog is in fact my brother's. Kasper is a command away from ripping off a perps arm, regardless of what the perp does or says.

The K9 officers continually train with them, and each other, so a dog will attack a person it knows it isn't a criminal, simply because it was commanded by it's handler to do so, IF the dog's handler treats the dog like an officer and not a pet.

The handlers that treat their dogs as pets run into trouble when the dog might not follow orders as closely as they ought. Part of the handlers training is understanding that the dog is a cop, and not a pet, and should be treated as such.

This also Mark is reasoning, which should invoke a negative response from an ignoramus.
