Are k9 dogs male or female ?

K9 dogs are either male or female dogs. It depends mostly on the purpose of the future canine dog.

Most K9 dogs that are used are male dogs. However female dogs are more and more used as K9 dogs as well. Where male dogs are often more aggressive and stronger, female dogs can be used as service dogs as well. Female dogs are often used as single purpose dogs. They are trained to detect bombs, drugs or other contraband.

You can not say a male dog is better than a female dog. It simply matters how the canine will be assigned to work for you.

Protection dogs

Protection dogs are selected and trained mostly to guard and protect. Trained properly they will make sure that the handler will be safe at all times. They can also be used as personal protection dog. However if you want a dog as family protection dog, some skills are needed by the owner. At K10 Workingdogs B.V. we also provide handler courses.

Detection dogs

Of course detection dogs should work to detect. This can be a variety of substances like :

  • Drugs
  • Explosives
  • Money
  • Other materials that provide a smell

Detection dogs will indicate the substance. Normally this will be trained by having to dog sit near the substance. The dogs will more or less ‘point out’ the substance, so it can be found easily by the handler afterwards.
