Run Your Pack represented at the 5th annual police K9 conference in las vegas last week. This is my second time attending this particular conference - and this year I managed to rope 2 others into making the trip with me : Matt (RYP's Decoy in Training) and Ben (owner of Calibrated K9 in Nashville, TN). Ben ALSO brought along K9 Kato - his black GSD that spent a week learning about SAR tracking/trailing at RYP last year.
Kato is a good student...
Here is a list of the classes that I had the opportunity to attend: - Creating Clarity and Intensity in Bitework
- Training the Remote Detection K-9
- Scent Discriminate K-9 Trailing: The Right Tool For The Right Job
- The Art of the K-9 Handler
- Critical Incident K-9 Application: Myths versus Reality
- Person-Borne Explosives Detection K9s
- Obedience to Odor
- The Decoy Connection
Always nice to gain fresh perspectives on concepts from industry leaders! There is a lot going on right now in the working K9 industry both with LE, Military and private sector. Nice keeping a finger on the pulse of changes and trends in the industry...also nice to do it in a place with 70+ temps when we are having an unusually long winter in Montana...
