Police Dogs in Action – London Riots

No Comments Doggie News

The recent London riots have highlighted the use of police dogs, and unfortunately the drawbacks for the dogs themselves. After the riots, it was announced that 5 dogs had been injured, along with over 100 police officers, of course, this number could be higher by now.

All the dogs used in the riots were fantastically brave. The many pictures of them show how good they were at their job.

In this very short post, I wanted to highlight the work of these police dogs during the riots.

Here are a few links to show you what they have been, and still are doing.

On the 5th of June 2011, the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition took place at Imperial Beach California. This competition is in its sixth year and dogs compete for 10 minutes after being divided up into three heats, small, medium and large dogs. Judges are concerned with confidence, long wave ride and fashion sense. The winning dog gets a holiday at Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
