July/August 2009 Vol. 5, Issue 4

  • Training Perspectives Q & A: We got a dog from another department when it cancelled its K-9 unit. We received a five year old Malinois that is patrol and narc-certified. Overall, we like the dog, but he has a problem “finishing” when he is on a training search. / Recently I heard several trainers mention that we as handlers often “create conflict with the dog.” What does this mean and how can I avoid it? / I have a new dog in training that is doing well except one thing: eating his feces.
