Police Dog Handler


A track to be followed, of which no trace can be seen.
A person still hiding, where everyone's been.
A child, lost, who cannot be traced.
Property hidden, or something mis-placed,
Searches made in vain that another must do.
A runner, criminal athlete, too fast to pursue.

Violence, a riot, too few on the ground.
A place must be guarded, not enough to surround.
Displays to be fixed, getting artistes a pain.
Public relations - aah, an animal's domain.
Places to visit and tales to tell.
Advice on dogs!! an officeman's hell.

What is the cry?, with all shouts to the van.
How on earth can we do it?
"Get the Dogman".

Police Dog Handler/Trainer retired

This is a photograph of one 'happy' retired Police Dog Handler/Trainer who introduced me to the art and gave me a career. This photograph will stop on the blog until he does a swap!

Any ideas as to the identity should be passed to the FBI.

Isle of Man Police Dog.

August 1964 news article.

In Custody
1964. The Isle Of Man’s only police dog has a nervous breakdown on duty helping control 7,000 Rolling Stones fans. The screaming upsets the dog so much, it starts to snarl at the fans. It is relieved of duty for several days.

Perhaps someone can verify the authenticity
