Police dogs in training
Twice a year, a team of young German Shepherds are put through
their paces to train as general purpose police dogs.
Gunner, a pedigree purchased by Essex Police thanks to a donation
from Chelmsford College, was teamed with handler Pc Paul
Arthey for 13 weeks' training.
In the first of three films to be put on the website over the next
few weeks, we meet the duo and watch them get to grips with
tracking and searching, two of the key skills required of any
police dog and handler.
