Coppers Channel 4 programme
Anyone watching the Channel 4 programme Coppers, Monday 20 February 2012, Nottinghamshire Police Dog Section will have seen Steve Abbott relate to the fact that his worst injury was being bitten on the testicles. This was around 20 years ago. My Police Dog Laser, for no apparent reason went up to Steve, bit him and then turned and came back to me. We were not in a training situation and he had done nothing to provoke it. It did take him to his knees and he was bruised for months.
An accident, a moment of lack of control, I was to blame. Dogs are dogs no matter what and the unexpected can always happen. Steve did eventually forgive me but I don't know about Laser.
I do worry about these 'fly on the wall' programmes!
