Free prophylactic injections for life for some dogs - but only humiliaition for Eddie & Keela

Post by Tony Bennett on 14.12.14 10:28

Here is some cheering news about a sniffer dog positively rewarded for his efforts:

http://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk/news/11665748.Rescue_dogs_used_to_sniff_out_missing_people_rewarded_with_free_vaccinations_against__serious__illness/?ref=eb

Free injections against serious illness for life! Something not given out willy-nilly to your ordinary, common-or-garden, untrained dog.

What a sad contrast to the fate of poor Eddie & Keela.

First they were dismissed as 'incredibly unreliable' by one of the most famous celebrity couples on the planet.

Then they were summoned to Jersey, where they alerted to a child's skull found to have 1.6% collagen in it, proving that the skull was animal/human remains. Yet the powers-that-be and the mainstream media - they-who-must-be-believed - ruled that it was a mere coconut shell.

How humiliating.

But wait!

The Pope - who according to the Pope and previous Popes can never be wrong (though this might not have applied in the time of the Borgias) - has recently ruled that all animals go to heaven:

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/12/world/europe/dogs-in-heaven-pope-leaves-pearly-gate-open-.html?_r=0

Let us hope, then, that Eddie & Keela will in due course receive eternal joy and happiness in their great dog kennel in the sky

Not cadaver dogs, but I did a double-take when turing the pages of my local rag last night.

http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/CSI-Hull-s-latest-recruits-Firedogs-Lexie-Aston/story-25674942-detail/story.html


"I saw a quote that if you had a beach 30m long, 15m wide and 16in deep, the dog can find one grain of sand out of that," says Mike Shooter, who will care for Lexie and will act as her handler."That's the sense of smell of a dog."

"When a dog detects it, it's a 98 per cent hit rate of it being a correct sample. When it isn't correct, it's usually because the scientific equipment isn't sensitive enough to detect the accelerant."


And get those cute protective booties!

"Average time it takes to train up a police dog for duty
 A ‘General Purpose’ dog would undertake a 13 week course to get to a licensed standard but it carries on learning whilst on operational duties for a couple of years afterwards. Training for a ‘Specialist Search’ dog takes between 6 and 8 weeks depending on the skill they are learning; for example, illicit drug searches, explosive device searches, crime scene searches and so on."

Doesn't take too long to train dogs to use their amazing capabilities in police work.

Aquila, from Wikipedia:


Main article: List of police dog breeds

Some breeds are used to enforce public order by chasing and holding suspects, or detaining suspects by the threat of being released, either by direct apprehension or a method known as Bark and Hold. Police dogs, such as the German Shepherd Dog, have many qualities that make them applicable for the job. A successful police dog should be intelligent, aggressive, strong, and have a good sense of smell. Many police dogs that are chosen are male and remain unneutered to maintain their aggressive behavior, however there are female police dogs which are used for rescue, tracking, and locating bombs and drugs.[11] German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois are most commonly used because of their availability; however other dog breeds have also contributed, such as Dutch Shepherds, Rottweilers[citation needed], Boxers, Doberman Pinschers, Bouvier des Flandres, Giant Schnauzers, and Airedale Terriers
Notable police dog breeds are:


United Kingdom[edit]

Police forces across the country employ dogs and handlers and dog training schools are available to cater for the ever increasing number of dogs being used.
There are over 2500 police dogs employed amongst the various police forces in the UK, with the Alsatian as the most popular breed for general purpose work. The Belgian Malinois is also gaining in popularity; in 2008, a Belgian Malinois female handled by PC Graham Clarke won the National Police Dog Trials with the highest score ever recorded.
All British police dogs, irrespective of the discipline they are trained in, must be licensed to work operationally. To obtain the license they have to pass a test at the completion of their training, and then again every year until they retire, which is usually at about the age of 8. The standards required to become operational are laid down by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) sub-committee on police dogs and are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that training and licensing reflects the most appropriate methods & standards.
Many British police services now source the majority of their replacement dogs from within specialized police dog breeding programs designed to ensure that the dogs are bred with strong working ethics & health as a priority. The Metropolitan Police has the largest police dog breeding program in the UK supplying not only the capital city, London, but many other parts of the UK & the world with police service dogs.

It is a balance between how good they are and how appropriate they are.
If you could train a chihuahua to search the debris of collapsed buildings for living humans, - WOW !
There is little point in training a Mastiff, or a Bloodhound or an Irish Wolfhound for this task.

The Police use German Shepherds / Alsatians because they are heavy enough to pull a man to the ground by his arm.
They use spaniels because their "noses" are better and they are able to nip around more quickly.
They also do not spook people in a queue at an airport, in the way a Rotweiler snuffling through your underwear might - which could give a false positive for YOUR behaviour
No one wants a false positive.
And with little funny-faced ones like spaniels and beagles NO ONE GETS A FALSE POSITIVE. EVER

And certainly not 11.  All alerting to the same family, on things associated with the same alleged incident.

The medical profession use the best ones they can find.  So far those seem to be Spaniels - which is nice for patients having their "bits" sniffed.
Not sure I would be entirely happy about a wolfhound checking me out for suspected scrotal problems !!

The chances of all those alerts being WRONG?

I'd say there's more chance of winning the EuroMillions on a Tuesday. The Lotto jackpot on the following night, then getting all the numbers in Friday's Euros, followed by a clean sweep of all six numbers on the Saturday night Lottery.

Then repeating the same feat the following week.

But let's ignore all that, hey. Let's go to Brazil to hunt for that mysterious couple who were 'desperate to have a child.'

Fricking idiots, the lot of them!

Isn't there a body of water mentioned,Bravura Dam?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-30431322

Iain Marshall believes he has the only dog in Scotland that can detect bodies that are under water.
His specially-trained English Springer Spaniel, Barra, can sometimes be seen at the bow of a boat on the Clyde, sniffing the water.
The dog may be training or he may be searching for a body.
K9 Search and Recovery Scotland is a voluntary organisation that assists in the search for human remains.
The training of cadaver detection dogs to search for submerged bodies is relatively new to the UK.
Along with trained water-search teams, the dogs are able to cover large areas of lakes and rivers and are able to perform searches in about 10% of the time of other recognised search techniques.
Heartbroken families
Iain, a volunteer coastguard, decided to get involved after seeing first-hand the devastated families of those who go missing.
"I see people who are totally heartbroken," he said. "You see searches being stood down and that is it.
"Imagine how that family must feel when searches just stop. That touched me.
"I read an article about these dogs, did some research and that was it.
"I'd never had a dog in my life until I got Barra. We are happy to go wherever we are needed without any cost. We go to help where we can."


Barra and Iain trained with one of the UK's most experienced dog trainers, former police inspector Mick Swindells, of Search Dogs UK.
Mick, who also trains police dogs, was given a Home Office Research Award to study the training and use of cadaver dogs in 1996 and has since trained more than 20 dogs across Europe.
As human remains are not allowed to be used in training, pig flesh is used instead. The anatomy of pigs is compatible with humans and pig valves have already been swapped for human heart valves.
Pig remains
However, due to the nature of the work, the dogs have to be trained with remains which are at different stages of decomposition.
"It is an ever-changing scent," Iain said.
The training begins on land with pig flesh being hidden in bushes and trees, before it is moved to the riverbank and immersed in about 30cm (1ft) of water. The dog will then progress on to a boat.
The reason a dog is able to detect the scent of a body in the water is because the body's gases rise to the surface.
The dogs are trained using pig remains
At first, the dog sits up at the front of the boat with his nose down. If human remains are present the dog will begin to pick up a scent.
It will become lively and move from one side of the boat to the other.
The dog will then look its handler in the eye and bark.
"At that point we know there is likely to be a person in that area," Iain said.
He said a marker would be put down and divers called in to recover the body.
Barra has been looking for human remains for about two years and has so far found about half a dozen bodies in searches across Scotland.
The pair have previously worked alongside the police on searches, and were involved in the search for five-year-old April Jones in Wales in 2012.
But Iain has recently been told his services are no longer required by Police Scotland.
"We have been highly successful in the jobs we have done for them so I was quite taken aback," he said.
"As far as I am aware, I have the only dog in Scotland that can detect bodies under the water.
"I have funded all the training myself - it costs about £5,000 to get a dog qualified.
"We only ask for our expenses to be covered."
'Very dedicated'
Iain added: "I've always had a good relationship with the police. We are just locating bodies and handing over to them.
"But all of a sudden it's gone. I just don't understand it."
Police Scotland's Chief Superintendent Elaine Ferguson said: "Police Scotland has sufficient trained dogs which can be called on and deployed across the country when the need arises.
"We also have a specialist marine and dive unit that is used for on water and underwater searches."
Iain said he was disappointed by the police's decision but said it would not deter him.


Iain Marshall had never owned a dog until he got Barra
"We are not going to stop. We have an asset here," he said. "We set out to help families and that is what we will continue to do.
"If we can do a little bit to help and let a family know someone is still out looking, we will give it 100%."
Mick Swindells, who trained Barra, said: "I've known Iain about six or seven years. He is very dedicated and has put his own time and money into this.
"He is not after taking any glory or taking someone's job away from them.
"His dog is a really good, useful tool and is one of the best dogs I've seen."
Mick added: "Using these dogs limits the time that divers are under water - where there is often zero visibility - so it is safer and evidence can be located much quicker.
"For the police just to discount this completely is a shame really."

Yet more unreliable dogs

Fearless RAF dog has saved countless lives in Afghanistan - and given out more slobbery kisses
Oct 09, 2014 22:21 By Nicola Fifield
Amazing Hertz the sniffer dog, a German shorthaired pointer, was so good at saving British lives the Americans and Danes called him in to assist them too
The RAF’s new recruit was a star from his first day in training and was quickly singled out for special missions.

His talents have since saved countless British lives in Afghanistan – and the Americans and Danes were so impressed he was called in to assist them too.
This fearless hero of the war against the Taliban is called Hertz – and he is a German shorthaired pointer.
Hertz joined the Royal Air Force as a one-year-old puppy and after excelling at drugs- detection classes he was fast-tracked into special classes which taught him how to sniff out electronic equipment.
And after just 13 months in Afghanistan he found more than 100 items of contraband.
His RAF handler, Sgt Jonathan Tanner, says: “Hertz, without a doubt, saved the lives of countless British and Allied service­men and women due to his intelligence and amazing nose.
“While he was in Afghanistan there wasn’t a single attack on Camp Bastion – and he played a part in that.”
Daily MirrorReady for action: Hertz in his 'doggles'  

His job was to sniff out banned electronic devices brought into the camp by the Afghan civilians working there.
They could potentially be used to pass information to insurgents that could help them plan an attack.
Jonathan, 45, adds: “On one day he found three mobile phones and a couple of chargers in a single tent.
"That was a really big haul. And it wasn’t just mobile phones.
"He also found voice recorders, MP3 players, anything which could store information.
“Once he even sniffed out an individual sim card that had been hidden. He really is extraordinary.”
Now Hertz has been nominated as Public Service Animal of the Year at the Daily Mirror and RSPCA Animal Hero Awards next month.
Although most of his work was at Camp Bastion he was sometimes needed for searches at outlying bases, so was trained to fly by ­helicopter.
He even had his own protective dog goggles or “doggles”.
Jonathan says: “Dogs can find air travel stressful but Hertz is an absolute star.
Daily MirrorOld pals: Sergeant Jonathan Tanner with Hertz  
"He loves flying by helicopter and took to it really quickly. He especially loved to be at a window so he could look out.”
However, one British Army officer won’t be sitting next to him again in a hurry – the mischievous pup chomped through his pistol-holder during one helicopter flight.
“He got bored easily and would always find something to munch into,” says Jonathan.
“Once Ed Sheeran visited Camp Bastion to entertain the RAF Police.
"Hertz was invited but clearly wasn’t keen on the tunes and ate a chair instead to pass the time!
"But although he had his wayward moments, as soon as I put his harness on him, he knew he was working and he would be 100% focused.”
Hertz had such a good reputation in Afghanistan that the US Marine Corps and Danish forces borrowed him to help with their search operations too.

Jonathan, an RAF man for 26 years, says: “They were more than keen to get him on side and we were more than happy for him to be used by other nations.
Daily MirrorFull of life: Hertz at RAF Benson  
“It took Hertz a tiny proportion of the time it would take a team of people to search an area so he allowed us to massively cut down on man-hours.
“We could be called to any job if they thought that Hertz might find something.
"He really was very highly respected.
“Any high-ranking military visitors always wanted to meet him. But he had no respect for rank – if you went to his kennel you didn’t get away without a slobbery kiss on the face!
“We were in Afghanistan for Christmas last year and he was thoroughly spoiled.
"The British public are so kind and generous and literally sent out hundreds of boxes full of treats for the military dogs.
“Hertz had a brilliant time tearing into his little stockpile of pressies.
Daily MirrorPlaytime: The pointer has a gift for sniffing out mobile phones  

“He was a real favourite in Camp Bastion.
"We would often go to the NAAFI for a brew and a biscuit and he always stretched out on the floor and gladly accepted the fuss that everyone wanted to make of him.”
Hertz lived in a purpose-built kennel complex at Camp Bastion which was air-conditioned for the scorching summers and heated for the icy winters.          
It even had a swimming pool so the dogs could cool off.
Jonathan says: “Hertz absolutely loved the pool – any opportunity and he’d be in there. Weather was never an issue for him.
"He worked through a whole range of conditions, from 45-degree heat to minus 10 in the winter.
"While we were out there we even had the first snowfall at Camp Bastion in 12 years. Hertz was really excited.
"He’d be sliding about in it all over the place.
“He is an absolutely cracking dog – my best mate while in theatre.          
Hero: Sergeant Jonathan Tanner with Hertz  
"When I was having a bad day or was missing home, I’d go and visit him in the kennels and he’d give me a big lick and make me feel better.
"From day one I knew he was something special and I wasn’t wrong.
“When I had to leave Afghanistan after nine-and-a-half months it was very tough leaving Hertz behind.
"He’s probably got another three or so years left of service then I’m looking forward to him becoming part of my family.”
After Jonathan came home in May to wife Jo and daughters Hazel, 13, and Zoe, 10, Hertz carried on with new handler Corporal Simon Dack, before returning to Britain in September.
He is now working on RAF bases here, mainly as a drugs detection dog, while he waits for his next big assignment overseas.
Jonathan says: “This week we were reunited for the first time since I left him in Afghanistan.
"I was worried he might have forgotten me but it was just like we’d never been apart.
“His tail didn’t stop wagging and I didn’t stop smiling.”

Dogs in the news

Post by G-Unit on 22.01.15 16:36

Betsy Duncan Smith thinks dogs are great. Sniffer dogs can help with early cancer diagnosis.
She said the evidence of their research is "blindingly obvious" and that their dogs can "beat any cancer detection device" while being much cheaper.
“What I really want to do is urge people to forget that dogs are wet noses and waggy tails and focus instead on the science," she said.
“These dogs’ sense of smell is so strong that, in trials, they can detect traces of amyl acetate when it is diluted in the ratio of one part to a trillion."

and again just a couple of dogs solved a missing peoples case in the netherlands.

http://nos.nl/artikel/2016528-auto-gevonden-van-sinds-1998-vermiste-man.html (dutch!)

this time the car was under water in one of the bigger rivers of the netherlands since november 1998, so over 16 years later the dog searching team signi did found the car back. they were looking into another missing persons case and the dogs alarmed twice, but the other car looks to be a true wreckage that was once just abandoned.

there is no news that there are also the bodies from the four missing people are still in the car, this dog team works on purely human scent even from cars under water.

so a little bit different from dogs trained on dead scent, but it works good. this organisation is officially just a bunch of dog crazy amateurs, but their work is of very high professional standards. all people and dogs are trained to very high standards and have a lot of results to be very proud of. 
this organisation works on voluntary basis and survive on donations. they don't ask the families of missing persons for any money.

there are more groups, with an equal working standard active in the netherlands with dog search teams. all of those do marvelous work for the people left behind.

the signi team have there own boats, the people working on teams have their own dogs, but they have a lot of the needed equipement like sonar and even divers. 
they work always closely together with the police and other authorities. 

i do think little people in the netherlands would call dogs notorious unreliable, most would just bow for their superb ability in locating people who get lost. it is not the dog search teams always get an immediate result, sometimes scent is lost and even then dogs can't use their noses. even in the cases they don't had an immediate result often much later the outcome would be they were tight after all.

there is more to tell about this specific case, the search at the beginning did not came with a quick start, still young people who loved to party, but after a little time the police did pick the case up as an missing persons case, there were spend 12.000 working hours, also with divers, sonar and even a police dog team, but at that time the case was not solved. 

in water, certainly somewhat bigger lakes and rivers also a lot of luck is needed, in this case also a lot of dumped cars were found, but before never any trace or lead ended with results. there also was a lot of gossip about soft drugs traffic by the two friends of the pair. the police officer is always keep on looking for any sign to bring this case to a result, even years after his pension. 

in 2012 there was also again a regional version of a crime watch program, but let's hope this time there be some answers for those people who left behind. 

edit: there is a message on the local news: there are human remains found, identification would take its time, but it looks like the dogs were right again and another very old missings persons case is solved.

Why do Police keep using "Notoriously Unreliable" dogs ?

Phoenix Police send cadaver dogs to former residences of alleged serial killer

Phoenix Police send cadaver dogs to former residences of alleged serial killer

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Phoenix Police suspect Bryan Patrick Miller killed two women in the early 1990's, but could he be tied to more cases? Are there other women who investigators believe Miller murdered?

FOX 10 found out police took cadaver dogs to four Phoenix homes where Miller lived, and for the first time one of his friends is speaking out.
Sarah Perry recently moved into her home, and had no idea who used to live there until last week when police knocked on the door. It's Miller's childhood home.
"They had shown me a picture of him and asked me if I have ever seen him, and I said no. And they said he used to live here at one point and asked if it would be okay with me if they brought cadaver dogs to search the backyard," said Sarah Perry.
Court documents show Miller lived at the home near 35th Avenue and Union Hills in the 1980's, when he was arrested for stabbing and injuring a woman near Paradise Valley Mall. He was 16-years-old and served time at a juvenile corrections facility.
Now he is facing two murder charges after police say DNA connected him to the brutal and seemingly random murders of Angela Brosso and Melanie Bernas in the early 1990's. Police say the victims were riding bikes along a canal when they were abducted and murdered. One of the girls was decapitated.
FOX 10 asked Perry if police used the word serial murderer? "Yes, and with the degree, the way they were killed they said they were looking for more, they were expecting more," she said.
Perry says police said they planned to use cadaver dogs to search four Phoenix homes where Miller lived in the 80's, 90's, and 2000's.

http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/ollie-the-sniffer-dog-discovers-cocaine-haul-hidden-in-plane-cabin-31126758.html

Ollie the sniffer dog followed his nose towards a large stash of hidden drugs on a plane… and is now being hailed a hero.


The detection dog sniffed out a haul of 3.4kg of cocaine hidden behind a panel in the cabin of a plane that arrived into Shannon Airport from the US on Easter Sunday.
The find, with an approximate street value of €240,000, was as a result of routine profiling by Revenue’s Customs Service.
Ollie boarded the plane with Revenue officers during the routine search, but showed an interest in a panel in the cabin. The drugs were concealed behind the cabin panel.
It’s not clear whether the plane was a private aircraft or if it was a scheduled flight. It is also not clear how long the drugs were hidden for and if they were intended for that specific flight. 
Seizures on aircraft are not common, but have happened before.
US authorities are now assisting the international investigation into the seizure.
