It is my goal to place high quality, professionally trained police canines and handlers on the streets in order to assist in making your community safer for citizens and officers. Our consulting service is designed to assist administrators in establishing and maintaining a proficient canine program. We offer education in the areas of handler selection, legal issues, budgets, community relations, canine program expectations, and program needs and requirements.
The belief that positive reinforcement is the proper way to teach continues in narcotic detection training. Our canines are taught illegal narcotic detection through the play/reward concept. Training is kept fun and positive for the canines and the handlers as their skills are built from basic imprinting to vehicle, building, locker, luggage and area narcotic searches. Our canines can be taught aggressive response (scratching at source) or passive response (sitting at source) depending on your department’s needs.
Obedience-At Patriot K-9 Training, we believe that obedience is the foundation for every discipline our dogs perform. We believe that positive reinforcement is more dependable than compulsion (pain) compliance. Handlers will learn how to properly conduct positive reinforcement and how to properly use compulsion, if necessary.
Aggression Control-We understand that departments must have social dogs that are willing and able to perform when necessary. Our training methods ensure that our dogs will protect their handlers and subdue suspects while being social with other officers and members of the public.
Tracking-Positive reinforcement and instinctual training is used to enhance genetically based behaviors which our dogs were selected for. Handlers in our course will see, first-hand, the techniques used to train their canines to man-track.
Building Search-Handlers will observe and experience the techniques used to train their canine partners in building search. We also focus on handler’s tactics while enhancing the canines searching behaviors.
Area Search-Handlers will observe and experience their canines being trained in area search. This will greatly enhance the handler’s ability to diagnose and solve any issues which may arise. Canines will be exposed to a variety of environments in rural and urban areas with an emphasis placed on hunting behavior and alerts.
Evidence Recovery-Our training style of positive reinforcement carries into training our canines in evidence recovery. Our handlers and canines are exposed to numerous environments and articles in training with emphasis placed on hunting behavior and alerts.
