Fabulous ♥️, they can be as smart and probably more active than labradors , german shepherd's et all. Good initiative Sir .m— Sharmila Ravinder (@sharmila_RD) March 12, 2020
Sir many who saw the video, those who have great experience with dogs said "not the right way of training" please check with few well known trainers. Regards.— Vicky Mahanta (@VickyMahanta) March 12, 2020
This is a wonderful trendsetter. They are the most resilient and sharpest survivors. Am sure they will prove themselves.— Savitha Bhavsar (@savyab) March 13, 2020
Nice to know that the Indies are being recruited. If trained well, they can be as good as many foreign breeds.— Obhijit Raha (@ObhijitR) March 13, 2020
But you need a far better trainer. One who understands the concept of balanced training and not just "only positive" training. Please avoid teaching unwanted tricks. 🙏
Thank you for this terrific initiative!! The skills of human trainers are what matter for guaranteed success, not the 'breed' or 'pedigree' of the dogs.— DebReckons (@DebReckons) March 13, 2020
Sir while we appreciate an Indie being inducted into the prestigious Canine Unit of BCP, the method of training IS DEFINITELY NOT RIGHT. The puppy is being choked by the trainer. Positive reinforcement in training these canines should be way forward— i Change Indiranagar (@icindngr) March 12, 2020
According to reports, the police forces in India have been training foreign breeds like Labradors and German shepherd to work as guard dogs and to sniff our explosives. However, this is not the first experiment to recruit Indie dogs. Earlier, Uttarakhand Police had trained and recruited a stray dog to its canine unit. Even before that, West Bengal police rescued a stray dog names Asha who emerged as the top dog in an elite drug and bomb-sniffing squad.
