Some random comments on reddit about PSD Chase and his handler at the shooting range [1280x852]
- I believe that it's so that the dogs learn not to be startled by gunfire, since in a real life situation they wouldn't have ear protection. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but, that's what I've been told.
- That's true, but shouldn't it still damage his ears?
- Not a clue. I know most working dogs rely on their nose more than their ears to track (and their teeth to be in good shape for mauling people), however, so maybe it's just deemed an acceptable risk for the dogs not to wear hearing protection.

- Looks like it might be a Von Grunheide Shepherd. Read more comments
