People always say it's not the bread but the way they are treated & trained. Never seen a Golden on patrol ;)

    Never noticed the cops using PIT BULLS either.

    :shock:
    The government has no rights. Only the people have rights which empowers the government.
    We have enough gun laws, what we need is IDIOT control.
    Blood makes you related. Loyalty makes you family.

    I thought getting old would take longer. :shock:

    when some one shoots a police dog its a felony ,, yet the police shoot countless dogs and its just because they were afraid and yes I agree on shootings to take out a dog chewing up some one on arrival but just because they think or fear is BS

    For one thing, those floppy eared dogs just aren't as intimidating.
    That's why TSA is switching to them.
    More comforting to have a golden in the room than a shepherd when you're
    getting naked.

    Pit Bulls are a dangerous and unpredictable animal and banned in many countries and places.

    I have seen Golden's and Labs as K-9 dogs but they were search dogs.

    I love Golden Retrievers and have had 8 of them in the last 30 years. Great dogs very loyal and sweet. They do pretty good in a duck blind too. My hunting buddies in LA called my Golden a Swamp Collie ;) His name was Dusty and he was a fantastic retriever and a super powerful swimmer. He out swam all the labs.

    I currently own one. Best dog I have ever had.

    Do you, or have you ever owned one? (I'd venture to say - No.)





    If not, you quite frankly Sir, do not know what you are talking about.



    Ghetto Pits, (as I call them) are a whole different matter. A breed of animal responds to how you treat it. We can debate this all day long. (But) I own one, and can say that I speak from experience. (Having owned one properly raised, and treated.)

    Anything beyond that is, "I read this, I know that."

    I had a real good friend who trained Police dogs(He passed away a few years ago).

    He liked Belgium Malinois Dogs and Rottweilers the best. He said the Malinois did well in hot weather, better than a German Shepard.

    He would train any kind of dog and was good at it. He trained dope sniffing dogs too and said a beagle was a good breed for that. He was allowed to have dope at his place to use in training.

    I remember he had a Pit Bull that was trained as an attack dog that was crazy big. But he said when it came down to taking a guy out a Rottie was the best, they were easy to train and control super strong and big enough to really restrain a large human.

    Most of the Pits, on the Google of Pit Bull Police Dogs, were trained as Police trained Take Down/Attack dogs.

    I would not recommend you put your hands on me, around my dog.

    Total sweetheart, until he is not. (There's your opening Q&D.)



    I tried/and wanted to enter the Military/Army as a Dog Handler. That was my #1 choice. (At that point and time, 1979.) They would only accept someone into that MOS with extensive "Prior Experience."

    I had two Malinois during my career, both only responded to commands in French. Each worked six years and retired with service awards in time to enjoy their golden years. :)

    Jim my buddy used german to train the dogs.

    As a kind of joke he trained his wifes Dachshund to attack :lol: It was all funny until the little basturd got ahold of you :shock:

    He sold dogs all over the US to Police and FEDs but mostly in GA, AL and FL.

    One of the reasons they may use pit bulls as police dogs is that 2000 of them are put to death a day in shelters, and they might be available quite reasonable. One drawback is that for the most of the time they have to be muzzled and that takes their mouth of of action. Another drawback is that they have problems getting officers to keep them in their homes especially if they have young familys. The liabilities of having a pit bull just arent worth it for most reasonable people.

    I provided the links to the many countries/places they have been banned.

    Clearly, there is a reason for the ban on pit bulls.

    And a reason homeowners liability insurance policies don't cover the breed.

    Just like it is illegal in the USA to drive 120 MPH some people do, however some pay the consequences.

    To each their own but regardless, actions do have consequences when one is will to take the risk.

    :D;)

    Again, you obviously have not Googled Pit Bull Police Dogs, nor have you reviewed the results. Links will come up, if you bother to look at them. (Doubtful.)


    Yes, having clearly never owned one, you are the "Expert," here.

    You dont have to own one to be an expert. They were bred to be agressive. they were bred to bite and fight. You shouldnt have to chain and pen a good dog in its own surroundings. The worst part they are unpredictable and turn on their own family and people they know. One dog does not represent the entire population.
