Canine Instructors have a cool job. They teach dogs to be a Detector dog and to help Security Officers.
A dog can learn to be a Detector dog. At the National Training Center in the USA, they learn to sit, lie down and to identify fruit and beef jerky.
Detector Dogs need a good food drive: they need to control their appetite because they can’t eat at work. They can’t walk ahead the Instructor. And they can’t be noisy: silence and respect are very important.
Beagles are very good at this job. They are obedient. They are great partners.
But if the dog has difficulties to learn, the Instructors find a home to adopt the dog. These dogs are lucky, too!
