Police Dogs (or ‘land sharks’ as they are affectionately known by many) have long had the respect and admiration of not only members of the emergency services, but of the general public too.
But after we spotted a video (below) of a ‘Land Shark’ receiving some helicopter familiarisation training, it made us think that perhaps these lovable yet no-nonsense dogs need to be given a new title (when they are in the air).
Perhaps ‘air shark’ would be more appropriate or maybe even ‘furry missile’?
Either way, the video below shows just how brave police dogs are and how much they trust their dedicated handlers.
In fact, it even looks as if the police dog in this video wants to ‘take on’ the helicopter judging by the way it is barking at and pulling towards the chopper.
So if you ever find yourself on the ‘wrong end’ of a police dog and you fancy your chances, just keep in mind that these powerful dogs seem to be willing to challenge a helicopter, so a 12-stone human is no obstacle to these loyal four-legged-crime-fighters.
