Are we being facetious still?

He's actually a German Shepherd. Here's his pedigree:

If only Martial art lineage could be as easily proven, eh?

I swear that I would trip over and kill myself if a dog walked that close to me.

Otherwise, pretty smart doggie!

The key to finding a pure bred dog is looking for gross genetic deformities due to excessive inbreeding.

This is different from pure bred martial arts how?

Breeding for conformation shows. The death of any breed.

Beautiful dog! The second clip made my fellows start barking a bit. Looks like you're of to a super start - enjoy him!

So, is the little feller thinking about joining the force?

Maybe not THEE force, but it's looking like he could be my gravy train having been recently evaluated by a trainer.

Excellent.

What's he got a nose for? Drugs? Explosives? Agricultural stuff? Cadavers? Chunners?

Just his toy, as seen here.

It's just a simple matter of associating toy with whatever scent you want, and refining the kind of visual cue I want from him. Explosives or narcotta, most likely. The big demand is in school searches of both.

The first hard part is finding a dog who doesn't forget about what it is he's doing. With many dogs, you could throw a ball into some tall grass, take 'em on a walk in the opposite direction for a little while, and they'll have forgotten about it. Detectors dogs need to be naturally fixed on going back to get it, and search for it without being prompted. The searching itself is not the thing you train. It's either there or it's not. You train the coveted item and the response upon finding it.

Take note that he both barks and sits upon locating it. If we were down to the nitty gritty of training the actual scents, and if I wanted a sit cue, I would have "marked" his sit, and rewarded him with another ball before he actually went and got the other one.

Hence, why retrievers are popular choices.

Nice! What's he, like 8-9 months now?

I figured that; they use more low-profile breeds (beagles and such) for situations where intimidation is not desired, like airports. Though with his agility he might have a future in S&R . . .

Yeah, I know something about obsessive -- um, I mean "focused" -- dogs . . .

That, and they're cute and cuddly-looking: less likely to frazzle the nerves of, say, the already-anxious air traveller.

Ehh...not sure what happened there. Clicking the red x still works.
