Protection / K9 Police Trainer

Dog Trainer Courses for K9 Police Department

In order to professionally train K-9 handlers, it is necessary to learn the proper techniques. Master Dog Training teaches highly professional dog training skills ranging from bomb detection to narcotic detection. There are multiple methods that can be used to teach a handler to properly work with his dog to perform the necessary skills. The trainer must teach a K-9 handler and his dog how to track a person and how to find objects in a 150’x150′ square area. These lessons must be able to be applied in every possible setting.

Dog Trainer Courses – Shutzhund & Personal Protection of the Handler

Shutzhund consists of a test that every police dog handler must pass. It shows that the patrol dog can keep a suspect contained and that the handler can work with the dog in different problematic situations, such as using tactics while under fire.

A police dog should always fully protect his or her owner.

Dog Trainer Courses – K9 Obedience Training

A police dog must be able to work in both small and large towns, and will have constant contact with civilians. The dog must behave well and listen to the handler. For this, a K-9 handler goes through obedience training, and has to pass a test that includes commanding the dog off-leash. Just like the other training mentioned earlier, obedience requires multiple specific points that must be learned through training. The dog must be obedient not just during the test, but also during work and in everyday life in different settings and both positive and stressful situations. The dog must be completely obedient to its owner. For this, the dog goes through a psychological test for service, and is also taught how to move through different obstacles. The dog is constantly exercised and played with so it uses its energy productively and has to constantly fulfill commands in different stressful situations, even with constant distractions that might occur during work with the handler.

Police that work in airports have a different set of criteria for working with their dog. For areas where there is constantly large amounts of people, vehicles, and noise, the dog handler must make sure that the dog behaves.

Dog Trainer Courses for Special Operations Units

MasterDog Training teaches dogs specifically for certain programs, such as SWAT and other organizations. The level of training is even more professional and the dogs are used in special operations. The dog can be dropped or picked up, as well as protect and jump from a helicopter. The dog will also learn how to be transported in different marine vessels, and other forms of transportation. The dog will be trained to maneuver with a camera, a GPS antenna,  and can move through water, hold a suspect in different environments such as a run down building, and  move silently with a SWAT specialist to not give away its location.  A dog of this level can also crawl with its handler, swim through large bodies of water, and move through explosions and while under fire.
