The officers and their dogs work together to develop mutual trust and affection in order to become an effective team. Not only did the dogs go through intensive training in all of the duties required of them, each officer went through the same grueling training to become an accomplished handler.
 

Each canine (dog) undergoes a rigorous screening process which includes testing in: sociability, play drive, aggression, agility abilities, and state of the art medical screening provided by a Veterinarian prior to assignment to a handler. Upon the conclusion of the canine screening process, the most suitable canines are chosen for the Basic Handler School.

In this basic training period, a new handler and a untrained canine are teamed together and undergo a strenuous program during which the teams are instructed in: basic obedience, agility, handler protection, either narcotics or explosives detection, tracking, building searches, veterinary first aid, and land navigation map and compass course. The students are required to pass all aspects of training to receive certification. Upon completion of the Canine Handlers Basic School, the teams are sent out on patrol and receive re-certification bi-annually at the Training Facility.

Canine teams also participate in many civic functions and educational demonstrations throughout the year at schools and public events.
