Sealyham Terrier: The Police Dog

Not all dog breeds are capable of police work. This is because law enforcement agencies have stringent requirements when it comes to the form, build and temperament of a police dog. However, there are some people who would love to christen their own dogs as police dogs in their own rights because of their innate qualities of being aggressive in protecting the members of the family that they belong to.

Even today, the CAS is used for guardian purposes and makes an excellent watch dog, in both his native country and in locations around the world. [...]
