How Do You Say Ouch in a Foreign Language?
Did you know many police dogs are given basic training in foreign languages? The animals are usually brought in from different European countries where they received basic training in the country’s native language. Once brought over to the United States, handlers maintain the original commands as well as English ones. Dogs are adept enough to learn several languages for training and usually become familiar with bilingual commands very quickly. Next time you hear a trainer command a police dog in German to “packen” or “fass,” I would stay clear because you may get bitten!
