“Police dogs are very important in aiding law enforcement and are loved and cared for by their handlers.” In What Does a Police Dog Do? Ellen F. Feld points out that these canines are highly trained. They can sniff out accelerants in a burnt-out building, find a bomb at a crowded public event, find a missing person, even offer comfort to someone in distress, and so much more. It’s fascinating to learn how these dogs are trained and, most importantly, how much they are loved by their handlers. Did you know that after a long day on the job, these dogs go home with their handlers and enjoy some fun time, just like you do?
Ellen F. Feld’s picture book, What Does a Police Dog Do? is an informative and engaging book to teach young readers about our wonderful K-9 heroes. Told in simple language that young readers can easily follow, the author shares anecdotes concerning some real police dogs and what they do best. She includes photographs of these dogs at work and explains how they are trained and how they have to be regularly re-trained to keep their skills sharp. She discusses which dog breeds are best suited for each type of assignment and describes and illustrates the uniforms worn to identify them as police dogs. Sometimes their uniforms are specially made to protect them from danger. This is a great learning tool for young readers to appreciate the special skills of some pretty amazing and highly trained dogs. Loved it!
