One of my owner’s friends sent him this image of a police dog in action.

I’ll bet that guy didn’t expect the dog to jump over the car like that! I wish the image was bigger so I could see the look on his face!

    Go dog go! Hell no he didn’t expect that or he should have ducked! That is awesome. I can jump like that too, but I can only take down a toddler because of my diminutive size. If I have to take down a full grown male, I have to either aim lower or sneak around behind and go for the back of the neck.

    Despite how it looks at first blush, this is almost certainly a training exercise. The hardest job is the catcher’s (the dog’s target). He/She has to agitate the dog, add to experience, and protect both themselves and the dog. This is “high drive” and probably surprised even the catcher in coming over the top of the vehicle. Were this real, as soon as the handler began controlling the dog, the “bad guy” would have had the other officers piled-on, he’d be disarmed and rolled face down with officers’ knees on neck and back, then be restrained. Notice he “rolls with” the dog to help protect both. It’s part of the additional aggression training advanced working K9s receive. Had the “bad guy” “fought” the dog, well that’s what stun guns and tazers are for — note: the handler has neither in hand approaching. This is “finishing” work for advanced working dogs. Still a pretty rare and impressive video. Echoing the above, “Thank You” for dogs.
