Barking Mad

by | 27th, May 2004

‘WHILE British dogs can barely muster a throaty “sausages”, guard dogs in Israel’s prisons love a good natter, but they do their talking in barks and woofs.

So in effort to understand what they are saying, their handlers are being sent on language courses.

A system that electronically analyses the guard dogs’ barks has been installed in each of the nation’s prisons. Lights indicate what the dog sis saying – green indicates the barking is harmless, yellow suggests the dog has suspicions about a caper afoot and red confirms a prisoner is on the loose…and dinner is on the way.’
