German Shepherd

German Shepherds, the most famous police dogs, have both positive and negative reputations depending on their owner and use. They'll jump into flooded rivers or enter burning buildings on command.

Belgian Malinois

These medium-sized dogs resemble German Shepherds and are used to get into tighter spaces than the Shepherd can. They can be K-9s, messengers, and search-and-rescue dogs in the military.


Bloodhounds' ability to track scents makes them valuable to police. Today, they are used for search-and-rescue, drug detection, and other highly sensory jobs.


Rottweilers are suspicious of strangers and make great guard dogs. If they feel threatened, they can attack their families and handlers. They are dependable and confident.

Doberman Pinscher

Dobermans, another popular police dog, are smart and loyal. Powerful and fast, they can track down fugitives and hold them until their handlers arrive.

Labrador Retriever

Police work goes beyond guarding, threatening, and catching criminals. Hostage, bomb-sniffing, and search-and-rescue situations require quiet, steady presence. 

German Shorthaired Pointer

These dogs are used in transportation centers to detect drugs and explosives. These agile and smart pups can help find victims and evidence after floods, earthquakes, and crime scenes.

Giant Schanuzer

These tenacious dogs track well. They'll keep an eye out for bombs, narcotics, and criminals. Their size and natural suspicion of strangers make them good guard dogs.
