Q. My 3 year old Mal bites solid, but does not like to OUT. When he does out, he goes into a rear guard and bark. Do you have any suggestions?
Mr. Frawley,

My name is Justin, and I am a K9 security Officer at a hospital in Scottsdale AZ. I have a question about outs, recalls, and a rear guard and bark. My partner is a 3 year old Malinois that was trained in IPO. His bites are very solid, but he does not want to out. When he does out, he will go into a rear guard and bark (for the escort, like he was trained before in Europe.) We had an incident last training night where Robbie got "Dirty" when he was in the guard and bark, he bite the agitator. Do you have any ideas on how to change him from a rear guard and bark to a front guard and bark? Also he does not want to recall after an out, again any suggestions would be great. We have tried a pinch collar, an E-collar, and even an Electric prod. He is a great partner, and we want to stop this quickly so we do not have an incident in the hospital, of an accidental bite. (Just on the side we are NPCA certified, and train with the Scottsdale PD every week. - Just so you know the general background)

Thank you for you time and wealth of knowledge
Justin and Robbie

A. The OUT is 100% a rank and pack drive issue. When a dog does not OUT properly it is 100% a rank issue with the handler.

How you solve this varies from dog to dog. I assure you that this problem shows in other areas if your relationship with the dog.

The RECALL is also 100% a relationship problem - or lack of relationship.

This is a handler training video, not a dog training video. It's a video that explains how we raise and socialize our puppies. If you are looking for a video on how to train a working puppy - this is not the video for you. There is a difference between how we raise a working puppy vs. how pet owners raise their dogs. Working puppies are expected to look at their world through different eyes than a family pet. This DVD on puppy training shows owners how to raise a working puppy.

Using a Narcotics detection dog (drug dogs) is "the most unobtrusive method available to search a suspects vehicle, house, or belongings." The goal of every narcotics dog handler should be to eliminate false indications by his dog (an intentional false indication could lead to violation of a persons constitutional rights). This video emphasizes training techniques that will provide you with a dog that not only finds drugs but also a dog that will not false hit on cutting agents and other odors.
