This one is for the officers that have a hairy partner that responds best to commands in German and tends to bite suspects rather than simply handcuffing them.
We’re talking about K9 officers. If you’ve got a bitey German human partner, the rest of this article isn’t really going to apply. Hopefully.
Yeah, your K9 partner isn’t usually supposed to get up front. But it happens. It’s not really that big of a deal except for buckets of slobber that you have to wipe up and the hair that gets EVERYWHERE! How can a dog lose so much hair and still be so hairy?
Usually it’s not a big deal.
Until it is.
The Lower Sioux Police Department has been a customer for a long time but when they got their newest K9 unit, they forgot about putting seat covers on it like they did in their last police cars.
They also got a new K9 officer.
See where we’re going with this?
Well, the 19-month-old, 90lb fur missile got himself into the front seat and decided to take out his frustrations on the seats. And he did, in a mean way.
Look familiar? Hopefully not.
After some expensive repairs, they remembered what they’d forgotten and we got them set up so this situation doesn’t repeat itself. (It also helps that the hair wipes off easier now!)
That’s a good way to make sure it doesn’t happen again!
A huge Thank You to the fine folks at the Lower Sioux Police Department for letting us share their story and pictures.
