The govt getting involved and all those people does not make breeding puppies and training dogs happen any faster. Most dogs don’t start training until they are 2 years old. You don’t train a male and female in explosive sniffing, mate them and expect their puppies will be born with that ability, and no amount of money or a bunch of scientists from Univ will change that. What a colossal waste of time and money! Ridiculous! ! Shelter dogs have been selected and trained effectively. Private companies and some law enforcement agencies have been training for years. Don’t muck around in something you don’t know! Spend that $500,000 on job training for people.
