Police dogs are Heavily socialized.
Any Real workers are tested, worked and PUSHED. If you leave a dog in a yard and it never experiences anything then it is much easier to cur that dog out.
Experience is necessary for a dog to mature into a balanced adult.
...Hmmm Mastini, looks like you haven't complete the sentence which should be like:
Polece dogs are heavily socialized ....and same dogs are meant to attack criminals are heavily,heavily, heavily trained to attack people under realistic scenarios, Right?
Have you any idea how much this kind of training costs? from a small to big fortune. Also the nature of the job for these dogs commands to be handled among innocent civilians, which should not been hurt be any means.
MAKE NO MISTAKE THIS JOB HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TERRITORY GUARDING.
you can socialize your trained personal bodyguard after you pay a fortune for it, in order to walk easily in public, but it may guard your territory, when you are not there to give a command and may not, may gets deceived by smooth speaking little lady, maybe not.
You may pay another fortune to train him for territory guarding (nothing to do with personal protection) but any decent trainer, specialized on this kind of training he will test for the proper trait and instinct first and then he will tell you that socialization will get inverse proportional to its guarding ability.
Something to be mentioned here, a personal protection (bodyguard) dog will definitely defend its master and may guard its territory or maybe not.
A real guard dog, will definitely guard its territory with no chance to get deceived and will definitely defend its master under any circumstances also.
LET'S ASK NOW THE CRUCIAL QUESTION TO MY OPINION:
DO THE MILITARY GUARD DOGS ARE MEANT TO GUARD MILITARY AREAS GET A TINY BIT OF SOCIALIZATION??? AND WHY IS THAT????
DO THE SENTRY MILITARY GUARD DOGS GUARDING MILITARY TARGETS GE A TINY, TINY TINY BIT OF SOCIALIZATION??? AND WHY SO ???
FOR THOSE THEY DON'T REALLY KNOW THE ANSWER AND FOR THOSE THEY KNOW IT BUT THE HAVE A DIFFICULTY TO SAY IT, I WILL MAKE THE THINKS EASIER FOR THEM AND I WILL ANSWER FOR THEM:
AND THE ANSWER IS........................., NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NO WAY, BY NO MEANS, THEY AVOID SOCIALIZATION LIKE HELL, IS THE WORST THINK IN THE WORLD TO HAPPEN FOR THESE GUARD GODS, EQUALS DISASTER.
NOW I WILL ANSWER WHY IS THAT, AND WHY MILITARY PROFESSIONALS THEY DO NOT SOCIALIZE THEIR GUARD DOGS NOT THEIR SENTRY DOGS, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO GUARD, SIMPLY BECAUSE SOCIALIZATION IS AGAINST GUARDING.
REALLY AFTER THIS THERE IS NOTHING MUCH TO SAY ABOUT SOCIALIZATION AND GUARDING, THIS ALONE SAYS IT ALL !!!
THE EPITOME OF GUARD DOGS ALL AROUND THE WORLD THEY ARE NOT SOCIALIZED !!!!, ....AT ALL, ...AT ALL, ...AT ALL.
Only one question to make do you know if Police SENTRY DOGS ARE MEANT TO GUARD PRISONERS OR MILITARY DOGS ARE MEANT TO GUARD CAPTURED SOLDIERS, ARE SOCIALIZED JUST A LITTLE TINY BIT ???? AND WHY ???
THIS TIME EVERY ONE HAS TO ANSWER BY HIM SELF, FOR IS FULLY EQUIPPED FOR IT NOW !!!!
Of course I respect any opposite opinion.
