McInerney, a K9 trainer of Macs K9 in Crete, Illinois said that if the dog attempting to bite someone, then the way the officer handled it by its leash and collar was appropriate. “If that dog was trying to bite, biting is a ‘hanging offense,’ and we will choke them out to get them to come to their senses because that shows the animal who’s in control.”

Hammond Police Lieutenant Richard Hoyda said: “At this time, the department has observed behavior by the K-9 handler that appears to be inconsistent with acceptable training guidelines.” Training them with physical praise or discipline will be better to these companions who always help humans in many ways.
