One of the many ‘perks’ of being a police dog handler, is that your four-legged-companion can call upon their various canine-specific skills at any time in any situation.
A prime example of this is when you are out walking your ‘land shark’ (in this case a German Shepherd cross Malinois) and you end up losing your keys in a field.
But as a dog handler then rather than having to spend hours upon hours looking for your keys, without joy, only to then have to call a locksmith at the cost of hundreds of pounds, you can instead instruct your trusty friend to find your keys and, within seconds, they will be found!

‘Can always rely on my best mate when in trouble. Not just against crime but also when I can’t find my keys’
In the video (below) PD ‘Rocky’ wastes no time finding the keys of his handler and is promptly rewarded for his efforts with his favourite toy.
Since the video was uploaded, it has been viewed nearly 25,000 times and has had over 1,000 ‘likes’.
