9 Life of Police Dogs In Moscow

Life of Police Dogs In Moscow

Posted on November 28, 2012 by team

We are going to the canine center of the Zelenograd Department of Internal Affairs to see army dogs there, look what they eat, how they live and go to work and check out why spaniels get less meat then others.

This canine center appeared in 1982. Today it is based in this two-storey building with a big territory where dogs walk and train.

The number of people and dogs in the center is almost the equal: 23 four-legged policemen and 18 canine specialists. These dogs are trained to seek for explosives and drugs. They work for twelve hours for two days and then have two days of rest. Sometimes they are on duty for twenty four hours.

They have two mini-buses like this.

Such a vehicle can transport twelve dogs.

This bus has a compartment for detainees.

They have forty enclosures for dogs. Each enclosure has an open and a closed zone. Thus the dogs can hide from bad weather or curious eyes. There is also an insulated dog house in the closed zone.

It is strictly prohibited to smoke here. It is annoying for the dog’s sense of smell.

This woman is the best canine handler in the center.

    Interesting, thanks.

    It’s goofy to feed the same amount to every dog. They are individuals, and will have different requirements by age, breed, etc.

    Dogs are our best friends. They help out in emergencies, family life, war, police work and what not. You can’t say that about cats, they’re just using us. Cats are sociopaths ;)

    @citydog: Agreed, it’s quite strange.

    I think there was a miscommunication somewhere. I was a MWD Handler a few years ago and the dogs are fed based on their weight. Tango was 90lbs and he received 3 cups in the morning 4 cups at noon or for lunch and 2 cups of wet at night.
