MWD K-9 Patrol Seminar

The MWD K9 Patrol Seminar covers the theory behind protection work from a training perspective and deployment perspective and discuss the various venues for protection work, police service vs personal protection vs bite-sports and how they differ in theory and practice. We will discuss why most sport dogs are NOT reliable Military Working Dogs. 

We will learn how to establish a behavioral baseline for a given dog bases upon his genetics. We will cover the foundation such as proper drive development, drive control and mind state. Basic protection skills such as guarding, out and redirecting bites.

MWD K-9 Decoy Seminar

The MWD K9 Decoy Seminar covers the theory behind protection work from a training perspective and deployment perspective and discuss the various venues for protections work, police service vs personal protection vs bite-sports and how they differ in theory and practice. We will discuss why most sport dogs are NOT reliable Military Working Dogs. 

This seminar is a purely practical education for the Military Decoy. We will introduce the equipment used in protection work, common safety measures, and the general “do’s and don’ts” in MWD decoy work. We will cover the mechanics of working a protection dog with both the sleeve and the bite suit, proper targeting, techniques for working both upper and lower body dogs, and the differences between the various protection venues as it relates to helper/decoy work. We will also cover, in detail, the physical techniques for improving a dog’s protection work.  Each MWD K9 Decoy seminar participant is encouraged to bring a dog that can do some protection work but it is not necessary.
