Me and my Subcontractors have working for a person that trains police dogs. This person has been unresponsive when it comes to communicating and has caused some degree of inconvenience until we get answers we need to continue. Yesterday one of the police dogs running lose went in attack mode, would not let me move until called off. Problem I have with this is that she stood and watched for what seemed the longest time before calling it off.

What do I make of this everyone?.... I did not like being part of a training exercise. If I had a weak heart, it could have been a poor outcome. As it was I just stood my ground until it was called off. It was one hell of an aggressive animal in front of me.

Thank you for any thoughts....

Load the tools. Once away and safe, notify local authorities of the danger. Then contact your lawyer to get paid for work done.

I have to agree. The job would be over for me. I don't mind and have participated in patrol dog training, but it was voluntary and appropriate safety gear and instructions were provided. There is no reason for the handler to not immediately recall the dog.

Sounds like the dog trainer needed training more than the dog.

Yup. And then find out who that person trains dogs for and tell them they are not suitable.

There is a possibility the Trainer is experiencing some kind of medical issue

But the Get out of Dodge advice... I will second big time.

Thinking this thru a bit - I'm betting the trainer was watching the dog to make sure it stayed on point a specific time-frame.

Having said that and if true, there is NO reason trainer did not inform the person assisting. So, that still comes down to trainer not trained well.

Yeah, I'd be gone in one heartbeat, or less.

Pets...and kids should be locked up and out of the work area. It could of ended bad for the dog,and it's not his fault. Some owners are clueless.

Thanks for the responses. They are much appreciated. When I asked why she did that, thinking these dogs don't do anything like that without a command, she said, ''I did not know you were outside''. I wonder about this since she has been awkward to deal with and waited too long to call the dog off.

You folks are my friends.... Thank you.

BTW, the pay comes right along at payment times, no problem there.

"....the pay comes right along at payment times, no problem there."
that is not the issue.
YOU were place in jeopardy

Pack up, get off that work site and then e-mail her with your reasons for leaving and convey that you will not return until dogs are caged/kenneled/placed in a secure area so another incident can't occur.
E-MAIL so you have it in written form and any response from her

And/Or text but KEEP the text ro/from her

In writing vs vocal wins


Is it time for your medication or mine?
