Police K-9 Dogs on Patrol (Full Class for Ages 7-12)

I live with a real police K-9 dog! In class, learners will be taught aspects of K-9s, what they do, how they help, breeds, training, and more. I emphasize critical thinking skills geared towards students' interest in police working dogs.

My husband is a K-9 Handler. His canine partner is a Belgian Malinois dog named Amigo. Amigo is a member of our family, goes to work each day, and has time off just like any other police officer. This topic shows what the life of a police dog is like as well as the lifestyle of the humans who care for him. All dogs are special, but working dogs such as Police K-9s have very specific training and daily routines. At home, I provide assistance to my husband in the care of Amigo.
No homework will be assigned in this class.  Bring your curiosity and questions about police K-9 dogs!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class is informational and encourages questions, curiosity, and critical thinking. There is no formal assessment.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Discussion is held on how police K-9 dogs use their sense of smell to detect illegal drugs and cadavers. Both subjects are touched on lightly and I do not go into detail on illegal drugs or cadavers. Only a brief definition is provided. No images of drugs or cadavers are shown.
Much of the information discussed in this class comes from a number of professional K-9 websites.
