K9 DECOY TRAINING SEMINAR WITH KEVIN SHELDAHL
 

This seminar is designed to facilitate one of the most important and often neglected aspects of a police service dog program. The training decoy is an integral part of a strong, effective, and safe police patrol dog program. Accomplishing this is done by being sure the handler and the training decoys are educated to work together, understand the drives and character traits associated with training dogs to locate and capture potentially dangerous suspects. Without proper training a decoy becomes simply someone willing to get bit. This relationship can adversely effect a police service dogs abilities and impact the agency employing such a dog through increased liability and/or ineffective behaviors, not to mention its ill effects on officer safety. Handlers, decoys, and departmental instructors are encouraged to attend this seminar.

Question:
 

Is the dominant dog collar an appropriate tool for corrections while training heeling?


Answer:
 

I don’t believe that dogs are stubborn, I believe that we aren’t either interesting enough or motivating enough if a dog doesn’t appear to want to do what we want to do. Many dogs appear to be stubborn or disobedient when in fact they simply don’t understand what we expect. Is your dog engaged with you during training? If you are using corrections to “get the dogs attention” then I think you need to back up and work on engagement. Corrections should not be used to get attention, they should be used in the proofing phase when the dog doesn’t comply with something he absolutely understands and is choosing to disobey.
