Book Description

Jan. 1 1998
For a number of years, Dr. Stark has been observing and  working with police dogs and police dog handlers, with a view to sorting out some of the many misperceptions and myths that prevail in the world  of working dogs. Through this unique collection of her thought-provoking  articles and photographs, she shares her observations and analyses in  a way that is easily understood by those who work with and rely on police dogs.

The title of this book derives from one of the sources of  frustration experienced by many handlers and trainers, stemming from the  failure of administrators to understand that dogs are not just  another piece of equipment, that the strong bond between the handler and this living, thinking, feeling ''equipment'' is essential to safe deployment, that adequate preparation takes months rather than hours or  days, and that training must be throughout the career of the team, so  as not to put handlers, dogs and public at risk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money July 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Sure this book is easy to read but does it cover enough details? This book has no training value what so ever. There was very sparse details about how to run and manage a k9 program. It would have been more informative if she wrote about the financial and administrative issues in running a good program. In the interviews, she did not go very in depth and lacked details. This book missed the target.
