RYP was thrilled to host Sean Siggins of Tarheel K9 here in Montana for both PSA and Law Enforcement seminars.
We kicked things off in the dojo for 2 days of immersive PSA (protection sports association) instruction for RYP PSA club members. As director of decoys for the sport - Sean was an incredible resource for both bite work and club structure/training process overall.
After an informative weekend we shifted gears to Missoula for 3 days of law enforcement K9 instruc

One of the fastest growing programs at RYP is personal protection and bite work. Anyone that has been successful in developing a stable bite dog understands that it requires a tremendous group effort. Handlers need to understand how to be safe and responsible with their dog while listening to instruction…and trainers need to be patient and observant to work with the dog in front of them to build their confidence and create clarity during drive.

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

As a dog trainer I field questions such as these daily: 'Can you make my dog stop chasing deer?' 'How do I get my dog to stop biting me?' 'My dog doesn't come when called...instead prefers the game of chase - why is that?' 'UGH they are out of control and never listen to me!' We all have dogs in our lives for different reasons and I am not here to say 1 reason is better than another...but it IS important to remember that dogs are dogs. They come in different flavors and varie
Great night working dogs on different levels of bite work and protection ! Had 9 humans and 5 K9s working. We spent lots of time outside in the sunshine doing tie backs and drive development! Also had the pleasure of a talented photographer capturing wonderful images of the pups in action! #malinois #bitework #RYPBiteClub #Yurt #yurtlife

**STARTING THIS FEBRUARY*** Kicking off the RYP Bite Club! Goal for the club will be to get together weekly to work K9s in drive development and bite work. Perhaps in the future the club may angle towards PSA but for now it will just be a fun time for dedicated dog owners looking to do something fun and exciting with their K9.Openings in bite club are reserved for those that have completed a RYP foundational obedience program.
