Police dogs need protection too. And the police dogs in Duesseldorf, Germany are getting some extra protection for their paws.
The dogs now patrol with protective shoes on because too many glass shards left by people drinking were harming the police dogs.
“We wondered how can we protect our dogs’ feet against glass,” said Andre Hartwich, a police spokesman. “We looked on the Internet and found these shoes.”
The police handlers paid $89 for the shoes which are the same types of shoes that dogs who walk on ice in Alaska wear.
The police dogs take about a month of training to get used to wearing the shoes.
