High Threat K9 Patrol Tactics

November 14 - November 17

Visit Website

This course is physically demanding and high tempo. The goal is to maximize training / learning time and break the cycle of excessive “down time” that often accompanies K9 training days. Handlers will also act as cover officers and decoys.  Strong consideration will be given to developing handlers into more tactically competent officers and increasing the skills and confidence of their K9 partner.  Each handler will be required to fill out a K9 vetting form to assist the training cadre with learning about you and your K9.  Handlers must be approved by their agency to attend.
