CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency procedure, which is performed when a person’s heart stops beating. Immediate CPR procedure on a person suffering from sudden cardiac arrest, if done properly, can double or sometimes triple the chances of survival.
Though police dogs are trained to do various tasks like sniffing out drugs and explosives or even apprehending a criminal, it is not established whether they could actually perform a CPR, which requires precision and strength.
