SOME REMINDERS:
dog training is based on the learning of rules of living in the household and in society humane. Its purpose is to ensure that the dog is "well mannered".

and behaves as expected for an animal domestic.
training, intended to train utility dogs, is the most important aspect of training. instills behaviors or reactions stereotyped to make it an effective aid to man in various situations. training sessions are short but repetitive and well-founded on conditioning and positive reinforcement. in the event of failure, the absence of a reward is preferred to the reprimand. in any case, brutality is to be avoided.



Training :drug detection
- Smell +++ (500000 smells)
- 1 federal brigade, several provincial ones
- Importance of the dog's profitability in the brigade.
- Start of dog training: from 8 weeks according to the services.
- To begin training, the dog must pass all veterinary tests.
- dog training by the trainer (6-12M)
- Training of the handler with his dog (+ trainer) in 2 phases: 1st phase: initial training with his teacher (10 weeks) the dog's age is from 8 to 12 months.
4 weeks: obedience, dog control
6 weeks: detection (it is important to reconstruct all situations possible).

2nd phase: advanced training (5 weeks)
After 1 year of field experience, the team obtains a certificate.
- 1st test for a certificate: 18 months
- Complete training after ≈ 2 years

MAKE YOUR OWN LURE TO LEARN TO HIS DOG TO DETECT AN ODOR:
1. The aluminum metal tube that is sterilized (boil 10 minutes) - no more smell
2. A tube placed in a hermetic jar (clamp)
3. Let him take the smell:
- amphetamines (48 hours)
- cocaine (24 hours)
- A tube is used only once (sterilization required)
after each roll)

are dogs drugged?

- NO:
1) The dog learns to recognize the smell without being a victim of its effects (2 types of
tubes: hermetic tube with a few grams of pure drugs or impregnated tube by smell) - learning in the form of a game.
- After playing with his tube a few weeks later, the next step.

2) The master hides the tube
3) The master hides the drug alone
- active toy search
- When he finds the hiding place, the dog will scratch, dig, bite the place to find his tube.
- To keep the dog interested at this level: the handler will discreetly put the tube that was in his pocket in the drug stash.
- the dog associates the discovery of the drug with the discovery of his toy.
- dogs recognize the drugs they have been taught to identify (new drugs: can miss)
- Police officers are thinking of changing their method because the tubes are small and can be swallowed.

THE RETIREMENT OF DOGS
- A dog works an average of 8 hours a day.
- Retired at 8-10 years old.
- The Li├Ęge brigade: the last in Belgium to have asked to stay the owner of their dogs.
- The retreat for dogs belonging to the Federal Police:
- if the master is retired and his dog still has abilities: the master must buy it back if he wants to take it back (10,000 /15,000 euros).
- If the master is transferred elsewhere, depending on his years of service, he must leave his dog or he has the possibility to buy it back.
- In general, the handler waits until the dog is retired and you can either offer free of charge for service rendered or it can be placed with the family.
- The retreat for a provincial brigade dog: the master being his owner, he can go back with him
- Finding a host family >>> euthanasia

ETHICS:
- impregnated tube: the tube does not contain drugs.
- the tube containing drugs: problem if swallowed...
- risk: ingestion of drugs by the dog during its
research need for veterinary intervention fast.
- work too intensive (8h/day during the week, weekend) but it's still a game?
- the training starts with a young dog, my kennel...
- retirement at 8-10 years Late retirement...?
- Norway, USA: police dog status recognized
- housing (kennel)
- choice of character (aggressiveness)
- indemnity??
- dog at the master's expense?
