WATCH | Police Dog Handler; Expectation Vs Reality

When you think of a police dog handler, your mind probably conjures up images of big white teeth, dogs chasing wrong-uns, and vehicle pursuits.

Not forgetting, of course, the life-saving work police dogs and their handlers do when it comes to finding high-risk missing people.

And, to be honest, most of those images are quite an accurate depiction of what life as a dog handler is really like.

My uncle was a police dog handler for two 20 years, and he loved it.

I also enjoyed volunteering as the stand-in ‘wrong’un’ whenever my uncle and his trusty land shark (or fury missile) needed some weekend training.

And, as you can imagine, it involves empty boxes and water.
