I guess his hobby of sniffing poop turned into a dream job
Just like John Travolta.
Lol I actually laughed out loud. Well done sir
I don’t get the reference?
Did you say dogs? Subscribed
Do what you love and you never work a day in your life
I’ve actually met this dog! His talents are impressive and his handler has a bottomless well of poop jokes.
Care to relay some of those poop jokes?
Nah, they're all pretty shitty.
He’s number 1 at number 2 jokes
Can you provide more info about him and what he does it sounds interesting.
I worked with scat detection dogs! Conservation canines is one organization. Dogs that are energetic and toy driven are adopted from shelters and used in the wilderness to detect scat which would take humans much longer to find. They are trained on rare scat first, and can be trained to do more animals, but over time they need to be retired because they will start finding all different kinds instead of just the one you are looking for. So they progress from stuff like lynx to common things like deer. The scat can be used for population studies, genetics, etc.
That is really interesting and something I've never thought of before...using dogs to track animals for conservation purposes. I know they are great hunting companions, service animals, herders but I just never thought of them being used this way. Makes sense and it's neat! Such hard working, amazing creatures. Our lives are made so much better because of our relationship with dogs.
Dr. Karen DeMatteo is an ecology and conservation researcher, this is her dog Train. Utilizing dogs who are trained to sniff out scat of target species can be a great non-invasive methodology.
That's hilarious. I actually read about this particular Chesapeake Bay Retriever when reading about getting mine into antler shed hunting. Coworker told me "you can't teach a waterfowl dog to be a scent dog" and I was like "not uh, that's bullshit. saw one on the internet that sniffs out mountain lion shit"
You could have said bottomless well of poop and I would have believed you
I choose this reality
Nah, they only like cop and military propaganda there.
A couple hours after this was posted, another k9 post went up on that sub. Sitting at 8k upvotes now
That sub is literally a honeypot to collect a list of redditors who are critical of the police.
Like the mods do it on purpose specifically to ban and note down anyone who complains.
But you get shit for pointing that out because it's a "wholesome" sub and we all know you aren't allowed to be negative about a wholesome sub
How would banning and noting down people who complain be useful to those mods?
Yeah that's backwards logic on their part. If their theory was true, it would be far more effective to continue to let people dig their own graves and make the sub appear very tolerant of criticizing our militant police force in order to bait even more people into making similar comments. Banning and sanitizing such activity would go against the nature of such a trap.
this is literally something a mod admitted to in the past. it's not some big overarching conspiracy or anything, it's just that the sub is very much not run in good faith.
I've seen so many posts today about mods of various subs supposedly saying something that there's no way I'm believing such a serious accusation without proof. It absolutely wouldn't surprise me if that was the case, though.
Dogs with jobs is a cute animal subreddit that posts cute pictures of working dogs. Including search and rescue animals, service dogs, etc.
It’s not just police dogs, Jesus.
That has to be one of the most useless, snowflake subreddits ive seen in a while
I’m about as liberal as can be and this dude calling r/dogswithjobs cop propaganda... I have a headache.
Liberalism is different from leftism, which encompasses anarchism, communism, and socialists (including democratic socialists). Leftists critique policing for its protection of those with wealth and how (at least current policing) harms communities.
It's not necessarily that the dogs themselves are bad (as we know, dogs do bad things through training) but that police dogs are often used to rehabilitize the image of cops after shootings or other corruption. I don't necessarily agree that this particular subreddit is cop propaganda but I can understand why cops would use images of cute dogs to sway opinion.
Hope none of this was pedantic, just thought I'd clear up the confusion in difference of beliefs.
It seems weird and out there but reality is crazy sometimes, every time a police scandal happens a cute police dog pic will go up and the mods crack down on police criticism
People that don’t like drug dogs and cops laundering their reputation thru dog pics are snowflakes or?
Smells like shit
So the dog version of those guys in movies who look at a piece of poop and say things like "Jaguar, female, she was here less than an hour ago"
"Jaguar, female, she was here less than an hour ago........ I'm going the other way."
"Jaguar, female, she was here less than an hour ago... let me get a selfie with her!"
Don’t forget “approximately 12 years old, in heat, possible tooth infection”
I really needed this, because I've been kicking myself for dropping out of medical school lately even though it has been 4 years now. Maybe I can find something comparable to this dog's newfound purpose of sniffing animal poop to find exotic animals.
Hey man, it's tough to find your place in life. If you felt med school wasn't for you. then it wasn't. You'll find your groove.
Hey man, it's easy to forget how miserable you might have been at the time. We all use rose tinted glasses looking at the past. Med school is brutal. Lots of docs are overworked alcoholics, who poison everything around them with their unhappiness. You don't have to worry about that being your future. There's lots of other ways to be fulfilled. From a miserable med student.
Also, for anyone reading this I'm not saying most docs are bad at their job, just that an unfortunate amount can be emotionally abusive to work with.
Dog: <sniff, snurf> "Hmm...dodo poop? Maybe woolly mammoth? This is very interesting. Aziz! Light!"
This doggo totally upgraded his own working conditions. Would you rather be stuck in an airport or warehouse working all day sniffing luggage or boxes all day, or out roaming free in the wild?
I'm not a snitch but I'll sniff out shit......
He just didn't have the sniffer for coke.
This is like a guy getting paid to masturbate.
Ain't no snitch in his blood
Dog: You got poo? I’ll take a look. Hm..looks like there is pieces of paper and what looks like a piece of a credit card?
Even animals know the war on drugs is bad.
Thank goodness he didn’t get abused as a police dog
Also I love the implication of “he couldn’t make it” like, drug dogs are about as effective as a fucking coin flip. NO dog can “make it” and they shouldn’t be a thing regardless of how you feel about the criminalization of drugs.
Probably means he wouldn't signal on command. What's the point of having a drug dog if it can't be used as an end run around the 4th amendment
Well by "he couldn't make it", they mean that he didn't handle the animal abuse as well as the other dogs.
Maybe he was capable of becoming a police dog but he ain’t no snitch so he started sniffing poop instead
“Couldn’t cut it”
You mean didn’t fucking care because he’s a dog and being rewarded for sniffing poop is like getting a job in your field of study
Bitch ain't no snitch.
all i read was: dog has a hardcore poo fetish, is able to turn it into a job.
80% of drug dog alerts are false positives. Let's not legitimize the idea of drug sniffing dogs because of a cute story. From the actual article the dog failed drug sniffing school because he was too energetic, not because his nose was inaccurate.
You think a post of a dog that helps out in conservation effort is some sort of thinly disguised statement on whatever political point you're making?
This is 2019 and you're on the internet. There's thinly disguised statements of political points everywhere. The majority of what you see and read on social media and the internet has an agenda behind it, sometimes political, sometimes commercial, sometimes something else, and if you think otherwise you're not paying attention.
implying only cops use drug sniffing dogs
Are you on drugs?
No one should use them though. They give out some crazy amount of false positives, around 75% IIRC. They're just a tool for getting away with profiling at this point
Oh god it's starting
He ain’t no rat cause He’s a dog
How do you even discover that talent
Hey... You got turd?
That's a progressive dog right there.
Drug sniffing dogs are the most BS thing i have ever heard of. If i am walking down the street and some random dude pointed me out to a cop and said "there are drugs in his bag." The cop would have no right to search my shit. Illegal search and seizure and all. Like you need evidence. But this dog can do that and we trust him implicitly. Fuck my rights cuz this dog sat down. Even if they are almost always right, they do fuck up sometimes. So just cuz this dog thinks i do. It is absolute BS. Least american thing i could imagine. What if he smells the PB&J in my bag. Now you get to go through my shit. Fuck off.
The dog 100% always knows if there's the odor of say... Marijuana on you.
However... That marijuana could be from someone who smoked a joint near you even without your knowledge. Also... Yes some LE does in fact say "my dog alerted to the smell of marijuana" regardless of what the dog does. That isn't on the dog that's on the BS LE officer who is either lying or doesn't seem to understand what the dog is communicating.
I just don't agree that the dogs themselves make mistakes.... It's either a dishonest officer or sometimes the odor can be on you even if you've never possessed or used the substance. A marijuana smoker with odor on their clothes can be detected in your vehicle for days after by a dog.
A marijuana smoker with odor on their clothes can be detected in your vehicle for days after by a dog.
How inaccurate is that. You dont have weed on you but someone else had smoked before getting in your car last week.
Yeah it's not necessarily fair that your pot head buddy gets in your car reeking of marijuana and that causes a search of your vehicle 2 nights later. since you didn't actually break any laws at any time. I won't argue with that.
He didn't even have to have possessed it in your vehicle. The dog can smell it in the fabric (hypothetically of course)
They mostly rely on subconscious cues from the officer more than smell leading to a huge racial bias. Drug dogs are just bad policy wise.
/r/dogswithjobs should give this guy some credit instead of copaganda posts
For a propaganda sub, they sure don't seem to focus on propaganda. It takes until the 12th most up voted post of all time to even have a police dog, and it's a little baby floof doing a paw print which is fairly innocent enough.
So how much rare poop has he eaten?
They don't eat it, their reward is a toy, they are very good.
Anyone else read that as “conversation”?
Found the cocaine....found it again....found it again....FOUND IT
This guy works in PR
I thought that said "conversation" at first.
"So what do you do for a living, Rover?"
See now that’s the kind of job satisfaction I can get behind
This pup couldn't hack it as a drug sniffing dog, making him tonights biggest loser
The Narc Dog
Anyone have an article or a site to link for more info?
Now he's just narcing to ruin the privacy of wild animals yo.
This is who my dog aspires to be. The Charles Darwin of dogs.
Bot! Beep beep! I'm all about top posts!
But isn’t he a snitch if he is sniffing on elusive animals... with him being an animal
Unlike his cop handler, this good boy found an honorable job
Isn’t he just. Such. A. Gooooooood boy. Yes he is. He’s SUCH a good booooy.
I know a good million humans or so who could learn from this dog
Bot! Beep beep! I'm all about top posts!
This dog gets paid to do what he loves!! And the banks hate him for it!!! Click here to find out how!!!
Sound like a good boy to me
I hope that dog doesn’t follow a tiger
"Couldn't hack it as a drug sniffing dog"
Aka doggie didn't like being force fed cocaine
no disrespect to narc dogs
What a good boy.
