Police dogs get kicks in Duesseldorf
The entire police dog unit of 20 German and Belgian shepherd dogs will soon be equipped with blue plastic fibre shoes. The dogs are being trained to walk in their shoes because of the high rate of paw injuries reported on duty caused by standing on broken beer bottles. The shoes comes in sizes small, medium and large and were ordered in blue to match the Duesseldorf officers' uniforms.
