Dogs are so important in our every day lives.
-family pets (unconditional love)
-search & rescue
-my favorite "therapy dogs"
I think being a k9 officer would be an extremely rewarding occupation.
Just like being a deer tracker. We get to investigate the "crime scene" and try to solve the puzzle using our knowledge and past experiences and navigate through unknown Territory. Being a tracker is not easy. .it can be extremely stressful. Owning a specialty dog requires year round training,exercise and proper diet.
They are more then a family pet.
