The dogs should be highly concentrated on their work and not notice anything else. Sometimes it’s vitally important (when they search for explosives, for example). The best reward for the dogs is playing with their master and caress.

  1. 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.

  2. 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 đŸ˜‰

  3. 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.
