More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

In the City parc of Waterloo a police dog show was organized to show the public what they are able to do. It really was amazing ! I had never seen that.

They all arrived in their cages

then were taken out by their masters

The one who should play the bad man was wrapped in an especially thick costume. Such a dog can easily break a bone

First they showed discipline

A "private" dog was allowed to show that he was also able to do that

The dog is trained to look for drugs

and finally found a toy in a box. He was very proud !

Then the attacks. On a simple word "stop it" the dog returned to his master

They learn by playing, it should not be stressing for them but a game

Here is the oldest police dog with the Leader of the dog police (a woman !). He is already 9 years old and will soon retire

He had a black face and looked quite dangerous, but he had saved many lives and is an excellent "worker" .

The dogs weren't impressed by gun shooting or other loud noises, they only listened to their master's voice. It was a very interesting show.

Belgians are beautiful dogs and really great at what they do. Scare the tar out of me, but great nonetheless.

I love watching the Police dogs perform...it's just fanatastic what they do. Then there are the drug dogs at the airport that come through Customs and sniff our luggage to check we haven't got anything we're not supposed to have.

I'd love to pat them but we're not allowed to touch them...they're at work.

"They learn by playing." This should be the motto of all educational systems! Great collage of photos.
