Go, Dog, Go!

fast_dogEver wonder how fast a police dog can run? Check out this short video from the Vietnam Dog Handler Association.

Notice the suspect behind the car, apparently firing a gun – you see the smoke from the muzzle, and a split second later – the Shepherd Police Dog leaps across the roof of the auto, clamps onto the suspect, and brings him down so quickly – you’ll watch it several times to really appreciate the valor of this dog.

It appears to me that this may have been a training exercise, as the “suspect” looks like he’s wearing padded gear to protect him from the dog, but whether it’s a real take-down or not, the dog is still pretty darn impressive!

Everybody now, “Bad boy, bad boy, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?”

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
