I was a rookie also when I had my dog encounter. We received a call about a prowler (what else) and my partner and I arrived at the house, and the lady of the house stated that she heard a noise in the yard and then her dog took off through the front door. Being the rookie and wanting to provide the highest degree of service I could, I of course upon hearing this went to check the back yard. I did not wait to find out what kind of dog the lady of the house had. As I rounded the corner in the very dark back yard I heard a low growl and stopped in my tracks. At this point all I could think of was to say "sit boo boo sit" I then backed up slowly and made it back to the front of the house where my partner told me if anyone was in the back yard the German Shepard would have got them. I of course reported everything was secure. After we left the house my partner told me he heard me say sit boo boo sit and it was all he could do to keep from laughing.
