Training and playing with dogs are daily work routines for a military police dog squad, said Vice Captain Liu Hsin-hung (劉信宏), who recently talked about his experiences with the unit and his passion for police dogs.
In 2007, eight years into his military police career, Liu was transferred to the squad.
He said he was shocked the first time he was shown the pack of stray dogs that he would later train as service animals.
With the help of other officers, Liu said he warmed up to the dogs in just two days.
