Brief description: Charlie served 8 years in the USMC training war dogs and has been training police dogs for 25 years. His company, Homeland K9 International and McDonough K-9 have partnered to provide you with this 2-day Street Readiness K9 Deployment Workshop. Like us, Charlie trains for defense against the 1% criminal! DON'T MISS THIS EXCITING OPPORTUNITY! 

For 2 days we will train hard with emphasis in most of the following areas:
-Muzzle: (Obedience, gunfire neutral, Muzzle ditches) Muzzle fighting is one of the last links between training and real world scenarios, along with hidden sleeves
-Subway exposure/Car: The ability for dogs to block out obvious stressors and concentrate at the task at hand. Defense of handler or apprehension of criminals
-Trains/Double decker trains
-Civil Agitation: Core principle work and we use it in our readiness training in conjunction with environmentals
-Role player exposure during deployments: This is a crucial element of true street training as we must mimic the criminal element in mannerisms and actions
-Bite building: some time will be spent on testing the bite of K9's while under stress.
-Tight space apprehensions: Handler and K9 doesn't always get to choose the location of the fight and having great close quarter fighting is a must.
-Shield presses: This helps the team prepare for crowd control exercises.
-Suspect Takedowns with K9 engaged: Physical take downs by the handler and or team while the k9 is engaged on the suspect.
-Team movements: This goes hand in hand with suspect takedowns.
-Riots with gunfire/ multiple attackers: Handling and engagement is taught here as to body positioning and k9 placement.
-Target acquisition: Clear line of sight. Identification of the correct threat target.
-Building Search: Techniques for handler and K9
-High Risk Deployments: Techniques designed to eliminate threats while reducing risk to handler and K9

-And much more.....
