88 Tactical’s High Threat  K-9 Patrol Tactics course will prepare handlers or teams to better respond to the dynamic, high-threat world of K-9 operations by using practical and behaviorally compliant tactics and techniques. This 4-day course is designed for K-9 handlers or teams who ideally have experience and previous street deployments. This is not a “SWAT K-9” course, but it will train attendees on small unit strategies and procedures for patrol. The curriculum is based on both human and K9 behavior during complex real-world situations.

The course is physically demanding – handlers will also act as decoys. Strong consideration will be given to developing handlers into more tactically competent officers and increasing the skill/confidence of their K9 partners. Each handler will be required to fill out a K9 vetting form.  Handlers must be approved by their agency to attend.

COST: $795
