See Dog-Handling Videos CPD Saw

Bloglander, the blog for the Pacific Northwest Inlander, provides the five videos that the entire Coeur d'Alene Police Department was required to watch five videos re: handling dogs, in wake of the shooting of a 2YO black lab by a CPD officer earlier this summer. Daniel Walters/Inlander reports: "About a week and a half after the Arfee shooting, Interim Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Ron Clark estimates, he sent out a link to his entire department, mandating they watch five training videos about how to handle dog shootings non-lethally. The videos cover how to read canine body language, how to distract dogs with food or air horns, and how to use common items, like umbrellas or clipboards, to deflect bite attempts." You can see the videos here.
