Q. I have a problem with my k9 that I cannot solve. He cries all of the time in the car, how can I get him to stop?
Hey my name is Frank. I am a k9 police officer in New York State. I have a german shepard who is almost 3 years old. We have been on the road for about 1 year. I have been searching for a remedy with my k9 on a problem I have and have tried asking my k9 trainer but have had negative results. My only problem with my k9 is in my personal car and patrol car. I can not get him to be quiet during the ride. He constantly whines and cries in the car while we are driving. Once the car stops he is fine. I thought about a bark collar but he doesn't bark he cries. Verbal commands last all of 60 seconds. Leash corrections last about 5 minutes. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
Frank

A. If you have a service dog you should be training with a remote collar. I never left with my patrol dog without his collar going on. This is a simple issue to solve – you don’t need to fry the dog – learn to train with low level stimulation. I have a DVD on this, Remote Collar Training for the Pet Owner.

In fact our xmas special gives people 50% off this DVD with the purchase of any collar. I use a Dogtra 1700 on my personal dog.

These bark collars would work but tactically its not a good option. There may be a time that you need your dog and don’t have time to remove it – that wont happen with the remote collar.

This video was filmed in Alberta, Canada at the police dog training center for the RCMP. The RCMP instructors are the best tracking dog instructors in the world. The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) catch 45% to 50% of all the people they track (this includes suburban and urban tracking). If a suspect runs in the country, they catch 95% of them. If you are a K-9 officer who trains his service dog with food & a ball you know that you only catch 3% or 4% of the people you track.

The directed search is one of the more important exercises that police K9 handlers must teach their dog. It is used in building searches and areas searches. If a service dog is to work safely off leash it must know the directed search. In todays society K9 handlers must have complete control over their dogs at all times. The training program for the directed search is an excellent way to accomplish this goal.

This is a DVD done with Bernhard Flinks, Bernhard is a German police officer and Schutzhund competitor. This video shows how Bernhard teaches people to bring their dog up to its genetic potential of drive (every dog has its own potential for drive). It's through "drive training" that the relationship between the handler and dog is established.

This tape is directed towards the real world where police departments or professional dog trainers contracted by police departments do not have years to finish the training on a dog before it goes out on the street. It is not uncommon to take a selection tested dog and finish him in 6 to 12 weeks (depending on the dog, the department and what is expected before the dog is allowed to work). For this reason the bark & hold training needs to be done quickly. The training methods in this video have that in mind.

This police k9 training DVD was done with the help of Kevin Sheldahl. Kevin is an International Police Dog Judge for WPO, DPO and PSP. He is also a full time K9 handler and head of K9 training for a large Sheriffs Department in the South West. The goal of our video is to show new police K9 trainers how to approach the task of training the building search. We will show handlers how to teach their dogs that the primary tool a dog must learn to use during a building search is his nose.
