HALTON REGIONAL POLICE HEADQUARTERS – June 23, 2011 – Thursday is training day and for Juno and Constable Jamie Mitchell of the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS). The Constable and the police dog are in training one day of every week.

“We do things over and over so that the dog never forgets what the commands are and we know we can rely on him to do what he was brought in to do”, said Mitchell.

Juno does not let that rope go until Constable Mitchell tells him to.  And then he reacts instantly.  Good dog.

The officer has complete control of the dog and while the animal is viscous and focused and he wasn’t prepared to let go of the rope the Constable was tugging at – one simple word – Kennel – and the dog slipped to the ground and walked directly to the back door of the police car and jumped in No whimpering, no looking back, no looking for a reward. A simple direct command and an immediate response.

Constable Mitchell maintains that dogs know 50% of what they do instinctively “They either have it or they don’t have it, and those that do become good police dogs”, he explained.

Juno, was wearing an orange vest because he had a pace maker on while he was being tested for reactions to different foods.
