Choosing a career can be a tough decision to make. A Labrador, named Lulu, faced the same dilemma. The US Intelligence Agency recently recruited her as a puppy for the training program. She was trained to be part of the bomb detection squad where they train puppies to sniff out bombs whenever there is a threat or a call. During her training, she suddenly has a switch of interest and always got distracted. The CIA considered this part of the normal behavior of puppies. They have psychologists come over and check the dog’s behavioral patterns.
Dog Behavioral Pattern As Explained By CIA:
The CIA explains that there can be many reasons why a dog doesn’t behave the way they are supposed to. In the case of Lulu, CIA appointed dog psychologists who could figure out what is troubling her and find a way to get her out of her zone. The puppies get bored very easily. Sometimes they need more challenges and playtime sometimes it can be the food that distracts them from the purpose. Once the root cause is found, the dogs are trained accordingly to get back to the job.
The Curious Case Of Lulu:
During the training, the trainers noticed that Lulu lost all her interest in sniffing bombs. She used to get confused very easily. Lulu was not responding well to the training of sniffing bombs even when the training was made more playful and the food was changed. The CIA realized this problem was not a temporary one in her case. She did not belong to the military world. Lulu was basically going by her instincts and found what she loves the most. It was people’s company that she enjoyed and thus the CIA decided to put her up for adoption where she can be around the right kind of people.
A loving family who has a Labrador of their own by the name Harry adopted her. Lulu is having the time of her life, playing around sniffing rabbits and squirrels. The CIA was heartbroken to the news of letting her go but it was for her happiness and well-being they decided to take this step. Lulu has a very strong personality and that is why she couldn’t take up the training that was given to her.
Dogs have an independent mind of their own. They can be trained to change their habits and behaviors but they cannot be trained to change their personality. Lulu loved to play with kids and sniff rabbits and squirrels in the backyard and that is what made her happy. She did not like the bomb sniffing and thus ended up getting delusional during most of her training. Her handler is taking good care of her and Lulu loves being part of their family. CIA said that they were deeply saddened by the incident that they had to let her go but they wish nothing but the best for her in the long run.
