Will Corgis Make Good Police Dogs?

In an experimental program, the Moscow Police canine unit will train a group of Welsh corgi puppies to do police work. According to state news agency RIA Novosti, two puppies are in training already, a two-month-old and a six-month-old. Elena Haikova, head of the canine unit, said there is no guarantee the experiment will yield Corgi police dogs.

She explained that the relatively low height of the corgi means they may prove effective in sniffing out objects close to the ground, and move in tight spaces, searching for bombs or contraband goods.

“They still need to grow, be trained and undergo every test,” Haikova said. “The dogs may buckle under the workload.”

We should know within a year whether corgis turn out to be effective for the tasks they are training for. -via HuffPo
