Combai, a dog breed from Tamil Nadu known for his fearlessness and loyalty to his owners, joined the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Dog Breeding and Training School in Bengaluru, in pilot title.
“We received two puppies from R. Aravindraj from Madurai. Another puppy will join the training school, ”said Mr. Ravindra, ML DIGP, CRPF, who was instrumental in bringing the dog breed into the school.
Mr. Aravindraj, who has been breeding Combais for many years, presented two puppies to P. Manoj Kumar, commander of the CRPF, after learning about the CRPF plan to acquire Combais.
“I have 30 dogs and my goal is to popularize the breed. I prefer to sell dogs only to those who approach me with references from my friends. I gave a male and female puppy to CRPF. I will give them one more female puppy, ”said Aravindraj.
In his book The ultimate story of over 1000 dog breedsZoologist Desmond Morris said Combais had the ability to overcome almost any obstacle in their path. They are fast, muscular, powerful and athletic. The breed is normally used for hunting and keeping wild boars. Their coat is generally reddish brown, with a paler underside.
Currently the CRPF owns the Belgian Malinois, and is the first agency to successfully train the renowned dog breed. In Bengaluru, they train dogs for multiple tasks, including sniffing, tracking and aggression, and the Belgian Malinois is perfect for that purpose.
“We also considered the idea of training native breeds as part of research and development, so we don’t need to depend entirely on foreign breeds. Last year we trained two mongrels and two Mudhol dogs, and after 40 weeks of training they were sent for field trials. We read about Combai and found that he is good at keeping and hunting and is a one man dog when it comes to obedience. His temperament suits us, ”explained Arun Kumar, AC (training officer), CRPF and native of Erode.
In the CRPF, dog training will begin after 90 days of age and puppies will be brought to school at 45 days of age.
