Do police dogs get paid?

In a word, no – police dogs are not paid.

But while they don’t take home a salary, the pooches are compensated in other ways.

One way to bring the bacon home is with extra treats and snacks.

Others who are more focused on the game are rewarded with fun and playtime—all of which is incorporated into their training through positive reinforcement.

One example – according to woofandbeyond – is seeing bomb-sniffing dogs being trained with toys.

After sniffing out a fake “bomb”, often a white towel, the canine cop is rewarded with a tug of war.

They’re also rewarded with benefits most dogs don’t have access to, including top-notch medical treatment, quality nutrition — even special funerals if they die in the line of duty.

How many hours does a police dog work?

Police dogs work long hours with other officers on the force – but are often used beyond the normal 8-hour workday.

This includes varied working hours from early 6 a.m. to late shifts into the early hours of the morning.

Some responders also allow their handlers to work a reduced seven-hour shift so they have time to feed their dogs and clean their kennels.
