This interesting picture comes from the Rontgental in Germany, where the State Railway maintains a special school for training German Shepherds and Bloodhounds for railway police work. This photograph shows a squad of dogs being trained to remain seated until their name is called. The moment any individual dog is addressed by name, it springs towards its master, while the remaining animals must not stir.




The above picture was specifically and exclusively taken for this work. It shows Marshal Pilsudski, Poland's Dictator, with his canine friend and companion, which actually answers to the name of "Dog." Reprinted from Hutchinson's Dog Encyclopaedia (England, circa 1935).
