When you are training your ‘furry missile’ to become a fully-fledged ‘land shark’, then it’s important to heap loads of praise on your four legged friend when things go well.
In this example, police dog Mario was tasked to find and contain a ‘suspect’ who, in this case, was another handler/trainer.
As you will see from the video, PD Mario has absolutely no problem in finding and containing the ‘suspect’ until his handler also enters the room.
Of course, PD Mario was only too happy to oblige his handler as is seen by the tail-wagging and barking.
But then, above the commotion, the high-pitch praise of the handler can be heard as PD Mario is left in no doubt that he has indeed done a great job.
In reality, praise projected in such a high-pitch & vocal manner is important when training any four-legged friend, as it helps to reinforce the positive aspects of the training.
Still, it made us smile.

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
