    The best route is to apprentice under someone else who is already doing what you want to learn.

    i dont know how to become a police dog trainer but i know what you cant have in a police dog for eg. if a puppy has been hit by a roll of newspaper from digging the plant from a young age then when it gets older and gets scared of something that gets waved around its head like a criminals hand trying to shoo it off and the dog runs away the dog is no use ,another eg. some dogs get cautious by walking on tiles because they slip and those dogs that get scared they are no use.

    Most police dogs are bred in Germany. There are a few breeders in the U.S. but the majority of police agencies import their dogs. The breeders do the basic training and then the police agencies purchase the dogs and continue their training here. The police officers and their dogs attend specialized training schools and then continue training on their own at home. So what you’d be looking for is either breeding dogs specifically for police work or being employed one of the training schools that police agencies use to further their dogs’ training.

    Best place for you to start is a schutzhund club. Basic protection work is done here for sport. You need a good dog and a good attitude, not a badge. Although many cops do schh with their k9’s too.
    Be advised that not all dogs can cut it in protection work, so do your homework and get the input of schh people if you need guidance finding the right dog.
