55. they usually work 10 hour shifts, 4 days a week
Maybe you should actually look into it. No, they don't lose interest at all... any dog that lost interest after a mere two or three hours could never be certified. And of course, like people they require periodic breaks. Typically, it's their handlers that need the breaks, not the dogs, and I know this from personal experience. Working dogs THRIVE on their worker jobs whether it's search and rescue, herding, hunting, therapy, police, detection, etc.

TSA has long since had a canine bomb detection unit, and they're quite proud of it...
