  • K9, inside or outside

    I'm a new K9 handler who just recieved my dog the other day. For the time being I'm keeping him in a kennel in my basement because the outside kennel hasn't been delivered yet. I'm pleasantly surprised at how well he is doing inside. He's from Chech and only one year old with no training at all. Was just wandering what other K9 handlers do as far as housing the dog. I am being very careful not to turn him into a pet but being inside does give him the opportunity to get know the wife and kids. Thanks...

      We have a bloodhound that stays inside with it's handler and her husband and other dogs blah, blah blah. Seems to be going ok. I do know a pretty good number of handlers here in SD that keep theirs inside. One handler I know even has Mal sleeping with him and his wife (despite regulations). Most of the handlers we talked to when geting the dog for our office were letting them in their houses and around the spouse and kids but most put them in an outdoor kennel at night and when no one was around the house.

            I believe it is recommended for him to be the cop's partner/protector on duty, the family's pet/protector off duty.

            I am not a K9 officer, but do keep a full blooded german shepherd inside at all times. He is well trained, loves the wife and kids, even answers commands,
            (sit, stay, and the like) from my 4 year old son.
            Although brushed almost daily, still quite a bit of hair in the house.
            Great dog, no accidents in the house.......

                  Ref to K9 in the home

                  I am currently the K9 handler for my department. My dogs trainer, Rudy Drexler, recommends that the K9 stays in the home and bonds with the family.

                    Well it's been two weeks since he's been home and he's been doing wonderful. Way better and much smoother than I had anticipated. He absolutely loves my wife. A completely different relationship that I have with him. When moms around he's know's that its time for love and treats. I have him in a 6x8 cheapoh kennel in the basement and my 10x10 is supposed to be delivered tomorrow actually. That'll be outside on a 11x15 pad. We got the concrete donated by a local builder and we did everything else our selves. Not perfect but good enough for the mutt. I think right now I'm going to do like the other handler mentioned and mix it up. When we want to go for the day I'll leave him out but primarily leave him in. He likes to see what everyone is doing plus the MD heat is still pretty intense.
