I like watching programs like “Cops” and ones of a similar nature. I’m curious about the control of police dogs by their handlers that I’ve seen many times on TV.
If a police dog is already excited about going after someone, can they be controlled purely by voice command? i.e. If a police dog takes off after a suspect and his handler loses physical control of the dog, will it obey a “STOP!” command (or whatever the normal word is; I realize they have a special vocabulary of command words)? I get the impression from watching TV that once the dog is in attack mode it is hard to control.
