Law enforcement officers are trained to use a loud voice with strong body language and direct eye contact when addressing a subject.  However, many dogs will not respond in a positive manner and submit to those actions. An officer should utilize the best practices in animal handling techniques to evaluate the environmental stressors and body language a domestic dog is presenting to them. When that happens the probability of a positive result will increase.





Officers are instructed on the potential signs and behaviors to watch for when interacting with domestic dogs. By using the information provided in this lecture, the officer will be able to reduce the risk of a negative encounter, being bit, or having to shoot a dog.
