From Aug 14 - 19 RYP traveled to Top Tier K9 in Madison Florida to assist with progressing the training of working K9s in bite work and apprehension. RYP also achieved advanced certifications in decoy work. Here is the writeup from TTK9:
"Help me congratulate Mr. Chris Williams owner of "Run Your Pack" out of Missoula Montana and Mr. Chris O'brien LE K9 Instructor for Top Tier K9: Both certified in our Safe Catch Decoy program last week.
Safe catch decoys go through rigorous training and testing in order to consistently and safely work dogs in prey and defense drives to improve the dogs as protection and apprehension K9s for both private owners and security forces.
Keeping themselves and the dogs safe and always improving the dog in each training session is the key to success for these great dog trainers.
Both decoys certified as pet trainers and working dog trainers with Top Tier K9 before landing their decoy certifications. This process has taken each trainer approximately 2 years to achieve these goals.
Congratulations guys! You are valuable additions to the dog training industry."
