    Question Training a German Sheppard attack dog. Are they training him to attack British/Canadian soldiers?

    Just wondering about the helmet being worn by the man being attacked by the dog. Are they training him to attack British and Canadian soldiers? National Socialist Germany began rebuilding its trained wardog program under the guise of police-dog training. When World War II began, Germany was estimated to have more than 200,000 dogs trained and ready for military work, the majority of which were German shepherds.

    They are clearly showing the intended enemy.

    Adrian (Mod of the German awards section) will be interested in these pics, as he is a dog handler in real life.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Interesting pictures, thank you for sharing them with us all. In answer to your question, yes, as stated above, the Germans were indeed well-versed in this form of training method. Even the KZ guard dogs were trained to attack people wearing striped uniforms, such as those worn by camp inmates.

    Having been a police dog handler in the 80;s I would say it is known as silouthe may have spelled it wrong recogniation by where your dog reacts to what it sees same as agiator always wore street clothes with a dummy firearm and usually bite sleeve hidden but not always necessary. I would say the dog is being taught to recognize the English silouthe of a helmet. I once knew a West German K-9 police handler that told me that when he trained for the BGS the recognition suit was of a East block uniform and a Russian helmet. Dogs are taught on command and this helps to prepare them for what they see to recognize so to say as the bad guy. timothy

    It is noteworthy that these are actually pre-war pictures: The policeman with the peaked cap and the rod is still wearing a dark-colored state police uniform replaced during 1936/1937 with the new mottled-green standardized police uniform. Also note that the men are a mixed army/police trio.

    I wanted to add that the first three photo's are stamped on the back by the photoshop that processed them and the address is Muhlhausen, Germany. This is from Wikipedia about Mulhausen:
    "The Great Depression after 1929 hit Mühlhausen very hard and led to massive unemployment. In 1935, the armament campaign resulted in the building of a large military complex with several barracks with the deliberate side effect of boosting the city's weak economy."
