The RCMP Dog Service officially came into existence on May 25, 1935. From a modest beginning of only two teams stationed in western Canada, the RCMP Dog Service has grown to 87 teams stationed at strategic municipal and rural points from Newfoundland to Victoria Island.
Originally, Riesenschnauzers, Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, and German Shepherds were used for police work. However, through the years, the German Shepherd became accepted not only in Canada, but internationally.
The German Shepherd breed displays the versatility, strength and courage that makes it eminently suitable for Canadian police work. Their heavy coats allow them to work under extreme climatic conditions. In addition, their presence seems to have an inhibitive psychological effect on potential wrongdoers. German Shepherds trained to apprehend will invariably make a successful arrest despite the fact they are trained only to hold, never to be savage.
