• Short Summary

    Alsatians are trained as police dogs in Vienna.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Dogs of peace and POLICE!'.

    Vienna, Austria.

    Various shots of Alsatian dogs in training with the Viennese police. We see them climbing up and down ladders and over walls.

    We see a woman in a country area being robbed of her purse by a beggar - just as she was putting some coins in his hat! The man runs off and buries the purse in some hay. A police dog sniffs out the purse then catches the beggar when he returns to the scene of the crime. The dog chews on the man's reinforced trousers until the policeman comes along.

    The dogs are taken back to their kennels at the end of the day.
