What type of training do the dogs have?

Dogs that fail training for government work typically have some explosives detection training. The dogs are highly active and in most cases, will require a lot of attention, additional training and significant exercise. They are crate-trained, but not house-trained. Most dogs have not been exposed to small children or animals other than dogs.

It could take up to 90 days for a dog to adjust to your home, family and other pets. You may have to seek professional assistance if your dog is not able to adjust.
