Handler Training for a Schutzhund I Trial
$20.00
1 Hour, 47 Minutes
The purpose of this video is to teach trainers how to handle a dog in a Schutzhund I trial and get the maximum number of points possible. Many times handler errors, and not dog errors result in points being lost at a competition. Many times it is handler errors that make the difference between the high scoring dog and the number two placed dog. There are times a dog fails a competition when it could have passed if the handler had only done something a little differently. This video is dedicated towards handler training and not dog training. The video is divided into 4 major sections: 1. Pre-trial Preparation 2. Schutzhund I Tracking 3. Schutzhund I Obedience 4. Schutzhund I Protection The first section on pre-trial preparation explains how serious competitors prepare for an upcoming competition. We explain how a well prepared handler gets the most out of his dog and reduces stress on the day of the trial. The section on tracking begins with preparing your dog the morning of the trial, reporting to the trial secretary, reporting to the judge before the track, laying your track for competition (what is acceptable and what is not), tracking your dog, receiving your critique and finally how to deal with a dog that is having problems on a track. The obedience and protection sections are broken down into equally detailed sub-sections. Not only did we try and show the correct way to handle a dog in a trial, we also dealt with the most common handler errors. If you want to get the highest possible score in a Schutzhund trial or if you just want to pass the competition, this video will help you.

One of the most dangerous tasks that any K9 handler faces is a felony building search. Training a police service dog to search buildings is also one of the most difficult jobs that every K9 handler faces. 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 Sheriff’s 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.

There are 2 types of tracking, "foot step tracking" and "tracking thru drive." Foot step tracking is taught with food and a ball. It is designed for sport dogs. Tracking thru drive is designed for service dogs. Here the dog is taught to follow the track at a dead run and there is always a man at the end of every track. Tracking thru drive is the only way to train a police service dog. If you are a K-9 officer who trains his service dog with food & a ball you already know that you only catch 3% or 4% of the people you track. 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. This 2 hour 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. They have been training police tracking dogs since 1935. I filmed three videos with them. This is the first video. This video will show how the RCMP can train a dog (in 60 training tracks) to follow a 1 hour old, 5 KM unknown track that contains back tracks, road crossings, fence crossings and articles. The RCMP has 3 Levels of tracking. This video covers Level One or tracking in a rural environment. Level two and three (Video 208) deals with suburban and urban tracking. I have had literally hundreds of K-9 officers call or write and say, "This is the only way to train a police dog to track." They wish they had seen this video when starting to train their dogs. Many officers have said, "This training method put the fire back into my police dog. Now he enjoys tracking and we are catching people that used to get away." The RCMP now uses my three videos in their police dog training center in Alberta. They also send them out to their handlers in the field. The other two training videos done with the RCMP are: Training Police Tracking Dogs Level 2 & 3 Track Laying for Police Tracking Dog I have written several detailed tracking articles on “Tracking Thru Drive.” If you would like to read more information on this style of tracking. Go to my articles. In Canada a person is not allowed to use his dog in Search & Rescue unless it is certified by the RCMP in Level 1 tracking (which is what this video teaches). I get emails from customers asking questions on Tracking thru Drive. I have listed some of these question on my web site for you to read. "Questions and Answers of Tracking Thru Drive"

This video assumes you understand the basics of bite training. If you have never trained a protection dog - we recommend you first purchase our video “The First Steps of Bite Training” or “Training Personal Protection Dogs." Many police departments waste thousands of dollars in officer training time with dogs that should never have been selected as a patrol dog. Our tape on training a police service dog shows how to test a dog to determine if it has the necessary drive to do police work. Some dogs make excellent personal protection dogs but are not good enough for Police work. We show exactly where to draw the line between a personal protection dog and a police service dog. The majority of accidental training bites are caused from equipment failure or mistakes in handling. Our video shows what equipment to use and includes an excellent section on leash handling during bite training. We show how to train a dog to target his bite to the entire body starting with leg bites, then leg to arm transfers, arm to leg transfers, and finally, back and shoulder bites. Because Police dogs are often sent off leash, we show how to put "off leash control" into the dogs. Off leash control is a must for every department that wants to eliminate accidental bites. We show how to train a K9 to work a traffic stop. The dog must learn when he can and cannot leave the car. We have detailed sections on field searches and building searches. Building searches are one of the most hazardous duty assignments a canine officer is required to perform. Our training methods focus on Officer Survival. This video was filmed in West Germany and the U.S.

3 Hours, 27 Minutes
This video was written and produced by Ed Frawley. It's goal is to introduce the dog trainer to the world of marker training in dogs. It sets the stage for the series of training videos that Ed later produced with Michael Ellis. Marker training (also called clicker training) is one of the most profound systems of training dogs that I have seen in my 50 years of owning, breeding and training working dogs. In reality this is a training system that is not that difficult to learn. In it's most basic form it's a method of communication that is very very clear for the dog. Dogs learn the marker language quickly and when they do they thrive in the training. The marker system produces dogs that love to train. I had been training dogs for almost 45 years when I started to learn this system. I felt like a kid in a candy store when I saw how well it worked and the attitude of my dogs that were being trained with markers. The fact is I still feel like that when I see dogs work with markers. It was not that many years ago (in 1990’s) that I was pretty vocal about how stupid I thought clicker training was. Those comments were made from a position of ignorance and a lack of understanding. Simply put, I was dead wrong and I made those comments without knowing the details of how the system worked. The power of marker training lies in understanding and applying the details. Dog training is a learned skill. The goal of this DVD is to introduce dog trainers to the details of training with markers. In my DVD I show and demonstrate the finer points of the marker system. I not only demonstrate the use of markers in the basic commands, but I also included examples of how markers can be used in more difficulty exercises, like the retrieve and the send away. Trainers must understand the details of this system if they are to be successful. Once they grasp the concept and learn to apply it to their training they create dogs that become problem solvers and dogs that love the work. The concept markers can be applied to any dog sport, including bite work. You can get a feel for the content of this DVD by going to my web site and reading the article I wrote on The Power of Training with Markers. Marker training can be started on 8 week old puppies or 6 year old dominant rescue dogs. It is a purely positive method of training dogs that is 100% non-confrontational. That is one of the reasons it can work with dominant dogs. This system goes a long way towards building or repairing the bond between handler and dog. While I sincerely believe that training dogs with the motivational methods of marker training is the best way to train a dog, I also believe that this work needs to be balanced by introducing corrections into the more advanced training. Purists would argue this point but in my DVD I discuss when and how certain dogs need corrections. Since the early 1900’s dog training has been an evolving skill. We only need to look back to the 1970’s and the methods of William Kholer or Winifred Strickland to see how far dog training has improved is the last 25 years. In my opinion no one is ever going to reinvent a better way to train dogs than with markers. The only thing that we will see change will be people who do a better job of applying this method of dog training. If you have trained dogs for years and think you are pretty good but you do not work with the marker system, I suggest you take a few days and study this DVD. You too may find a whole new method of K9 communication and it may re-ignite a fire in your belly to get out and train.

This video deals with hard surface tracking (HST). In this video, you are going be able to see what can be accomplished with the right dog and the right training. The dogs in this video were filmed at the Nunspeet and Rotterdam Police Dog Schools in Holland. The instructors in these two schools are some of the best trainers in the world at hard surface tracking. Handlers that have never trained or never seen a good hard surface tracking dog are going to see some excellent tracking dogs in this tape. Not all of the dogs are fully trained dogs so you will be able to see the work of partially trained dogs. These dogs can be used as the standard to compare your own dog to. I hesitate to call this a training video. The reason I say that is because I almost feel that hard surface tracking is an art form and not a science that can be easily learned. The dogs that do this work are the best of the best. I feel I can point out the basics of how the Dutch Police do this work but the essence of the training lies in selecting the right dog for the work and developing the bond and experience to work together as a team. I will take a minute here to describe what a dog must be able to do before he is even selected for hard surface work. By the time a dog is ready for hard surface work, he should already be an accomplished tracking dog. By this I mean that he should have been taken through Level One, Two, and Three police tracking. He should have had approximately 60 training tracks in the country and another 60 training tracks in urban and suburban tracking. In my many trips to Holland I have had a number of conversations with instructors from both schools of thought concerning how to selection test a dog for this work. They all agree that for a dog to do this level of tracking it must possess a natural ability to track, and he must have strong prey drive without being hectic. A natural ability to track in a day is almost an impossible thing to describe to people who do not have a lot of experience. One of the noticeable characteristics of these dogs is they use their nose ALL THE TIME. When these dogs are let out of a squad car they always have their nose on the ground. When they are let loose to run on their own, they are constantly searching with their nose and not their eyes. They don't run around in a field with their head up - they run around with their nose an inch or two off the ground. Some dogs have extreme prey drive and hunt drive. They are excellent narcotics dogs or patrol dogs but they lack the drive to track. These dogs do not make good hard surface trackers. Some of the real hyper prey dogs make excellent narcotics dogs, but because these dogs are so active they lack the ability to settle down and focus on the small amount of scent that is available on a hard surface track. These dogs lose focus and then lose the track. Another point that needs to be determined in a potential hard surface tracker, is the dog's ability to ignore distractions and focus on the work. This is a very important point for city trackers. Some dogs have real distraction problems with people or other animals (cats, dogs, and even people). This results in them not being suitable for the work. Some dogs initially have small distraction problems with other animals, but can be taught to ignore them. This does not mean that these dogs are immune to all distractions - what you will see in this video is that when a dog loses focus, the instructors will "down" the dog until the dog calm's down and refocuses. When the instructor sees that the dog has stopped focusing on whatever it was that distracted him, he will tell the dog to track again. You will see examples of this in the tape. There is a fine line that needs to be recognized between a dog that has the drive to track and enough prey drive to want to search for a track, and not be so hectic that it cannot focus. Once you have seen a dog with this ability you will be able to recognize it in other dogs. One point that I will make in this tape is that the Dutch police do not have dual purpose narcotics patrol tracking dogs. The dogs I saw that were used for hard surface work were all specialty tracking dogs. These are dogs that only track - they do not do bite work, or area searches, or drug work. The American police do not have the luxury of only having specialty tracking dogs. The amount of work that it takes to get a dog to the level that is expected in Holland is nothing short of amazing. After the dog goes through the normal tracking training (the level 1 -2- 3 type of work), they then spend 6 to 8 months on hard surface work. American law enforcement agencies are simply not going to allow this kind of time for training - so in my opinion, if a good hard surface tracking dog ends up being trained in the States it's going to be because the best of the best K9 trainers took it upon himself to go out and do it on his own.

Muzzle Fighting for Police Service Dogs
Muzzle Fighting for Police Service Dogs
$35.00
1 Hour, 30 Minutes
This training video deals with "Muzzle Fighting" for Police Service Dogs. Working in muzzle is one of the least understood exercises in bite work. In 1985, I produced my first Police Service dog video. In it we covered 10 minutes of muzzle work. Since then we have learned a lot about this training. This new video is 1 Hour and 20 Minutes long and takes the viewer step by step through muzzle fighting. The reason we chose the term “muzzle fighting” is because there is a real difference between what we show in this video and what happens when someone just throws a muzzle on a dog and sends him after a helper without a sleeve. If a dog is genetically capable of muzzle fighting we will show you how to train it to use its body to go out and knock the snot out of someone. The goal of this tape is to train a dog in muzzle to alert on a passive suspect located some distance from the handler. If that suspect tries to fight or flee, the dog is to physically fight the man by punching him center mass with his body. Training a dog to indicate on a suspect that is running away from him, or stimulating him, or agitating him is easy. Training a dog to indicate on a standing still man or a man laying quietly on the ground is another matter all together. The video begins by exploring the various muzzles on the market today. We show exactly what a dog must be doing in bite work before it is introduced to muzzle fighting. We go through all of the training steps for muzzle and we show examples of what happens to dogs when they get ahead of themselves in training. We also show what happens to dogs that are not genetically capable of this work. We will go through the training steps for bark and hold in muzzle and we show you how to set up scenarios in muzzle that fit your needs. This video is as much of a helper training video as it is a dog training video because too many people go out and ask friends or other officers to help them with their muzzle work. Too often this creates problems. Good muzzle training adds "fight drive" to a dog. It teaches the dog to work center mass on a helpers body and not focus on sleeves and other equipment. Sport dog trainers can learn a lot about improving their dogs through this aspect of police work. Teaching a sport dog to do bark and hold in muzzle really produces flashy Schutzhund dogs. Training a service dog in the muzzle, hidden sleeve, and body bite suits is a must to produce a dog that is ready to work the street. This video shows you how to train the muzzle portion of this equation.

In 1985, I saw my first HGH nationals in Europe. This is the type of sheep herding German Shepherd Dogs do the best. It is also the style of training the AKC has based their herding instinct testing and course "C" on. I originally felt that the dogs did this work so naturally that they had to be doing it from instinct and not training. I was wrong. Since then I have collected enough information from Karl Fuller of Kirschental Kennels in West Germany to produce this tape. Karl Fuller has won West Germany's HGH nationals 7 times. He has bred more HGH Siegers and Siegrens than any other man. The training concepts in this video are a result of the time Karl has generously spent with myself and my friends. The Continental or Tending Style of sheep dog training was developed in the areas of Europe where there are few fences and specific fields that could be grazed. The Tending Style is totally different than what most people think of when they see Collies work sheep. Collies drive sheep from behind and cut sheep from the flock. In the Tending Style, the sheep are trained to follow the Shepherd and come when called. The dogs act as a living fence to keep the flock in the fields. The Shepherd wants them to graze. Our video shows that while genetics improves performance, systematic step by step work produces a well trained sheep herding dog.

This tracking dog video was filmed over a 3 year period in Germany & America. It is one of the most comprehensive studies ever done on sport tracking (foot step tracking). The tracking video has had rave reviews from a number of different dog training magazines, including Front & Finish. The AKC even requested a copy for their Judge’s library. This video uses all motivational methods to teach a dog to track. While we discuss the difference between motivational tracking and forced tracking, we do not teach any force in this video. The video begins with the theory of track scent. There is a section on how to select tracking fields for training dogs of different skill levels. We show good and bad tracking fields for beginner dogs and the more advanced dogs and explain why it is so important to select the correct training field to teach your dog to track. There is an excellent section on how to lay a training track for your dog. In the beginning of foot step tracking the handler lays his own tracks. We show the best ways to remember where you laid your track, this is often not as easy as it would seem. You will learn how to use food in the beginning of training a foot step tracking dog. This is broken down into a step by step program that anyone can follow. We also explain how to wean the tracking dog off of training tracks with food. To be competitive in tracking, you need to know when the dog is ready for cross winds, tail winds, and cover changes. Understanding wind currents is a must if you are going to develop a nose to the ground step by step tracking dog. We show you how to make wind currents work for you in developing a sound training program. Handling a tracking dog is an art form. We cover some of the most important points on line handling and voice control. This one section is going to add handler points to your scores in a trail. If you compete in one of the dog sports (i.e. Schutzhund or AKC tracking) this is the video you need to train your dog. If you own a puppy and want to train it to become a Search and Rescue dog this is the tracking video to start with. Your training can begin at 8 weeks of age and never has to quit. I always recommend foot step tracking for the for the first 10 to 12 months before it's switched to tracking through drive. You can read about "tracking through drive" on my web site. There are several excellent articles listed on my dog training article page. I have done three training videos with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

1 Hour, 16 Minutes
Kevin Sheldahl has been involved in police service dog training for nearly 30 years. He has served as a police K9 handler, as well as an instructor. Over the course of his career he has trained over 200 police K9 handlers and dogs, from the beginning all the way to deployment ready. In addition to handling an operational dog, Kevin also certifies police service dogs for several major police departments throughout the country. This DVD will take a look at police K9 certification standards and show how to convert them into a deployment standard. We will show how the certification standards that a police service dog must attain are used in a practical application. It is important that all police service dogs are trained for street deployment not simply for certification. During the filming of this DVD we worked with approximately 30 operational police dogs and handlers from all over the country. We used a variety of dogs from a variety of departments. This allowed us to show the broad picture of what different police service dogs are required to do. Not every area of operation has the same distractions. However when training a police service dog it is important to train in as many new and distracting environments as possible. During the course of this DVD you will see dogs operating under a chemical environment (CS gas), in crawl spaces, in prison cells, traffic stops, black out conditions, and several other distractions. This DVD is meant to be used as a guideline for what your police service dog and handler should be able to do. This DVD is not only meant for the K9 handlers but should be used as a tool for supervisors to better understand the capability of the police service dogs at their disposal. What will be covered in the DVD Obedience in action Heeling, a means of traveling to an assignment. Down, an absolute used to control the PSD and the situation. Sit, an unnecessary skill that has convention. Here, a necessary skill for any dog. These few skills done under distraction. Agility for service dogs Practical application of jumping and climbing. Tracking skills for the Patrol Dog Evidence indication Subject indication Encounters/interviews Not necessary for all service dogs. Needed by those who patrol on foot or do activities such as door checks at businesses. Attentiveness/ vigilance an attribute necessary for the dog to immediately respond to an assault/attack on the handler (may not be necessary for all patrol dog teams depending on their work environment). Handler protection Combat and defense of the handler Control Surveillance Surveillance in the modern SD is the practice of placing the dog in a position where the handler and the SD can see the same thing and the handler can observe whether the SD is attending to the area/target. Announcements The announcement in training the SD is an integral portion of the training. It prepares the SD for what is next. It also fulfills a need in the deployment of a SD to provide the opportunity for a suspect to stop the activities which they are engaged in which placed LE in the position of applying this particular tool (SD). In addition the announcement allows for the possibility of bystanders or unauthorized personnel to communicate their presence in a search area. Pursuit The action of chasing a fleeing suspect, it may be started from a vehicle, heeling, or a surveillance position or initiated while the SD is engaged in searching. Detain/capture/call out/recall A variety of non-contact means of manipulating the SD during a capture in which the suspect has expressed/demonstrated their willingness to comply with law enforcement. The technique is dependent on training, practices, circumstances, and tactics. Release There are a variety of releases, these refer to contact and non contact procedures in the capture of a suspect or in an emergency should an unintended contact occur. These are a variety of Tactical Releases, verbal releases and a modification called a disengage as well as an emergency release. Arrest/guard A group of procedures where the SD is attentive to the actions of a suspect as well as the directions of the handler during an arrest procedure, many of these dovetail with the releases above. Search The searches in which a SD engages are of two types, a directed or a undirected search. In application the two are often used in conjunction with one another. Interior Exterior Applying obedience in the process of the search (down w/ vigilance). Applying the go out or go away into the search. Specialty searches, chemical environment. Specialty Deployments Vehicles clearing High risk traffic stops Forced extractions High risk captures/online/offline Incorporating the Service Dog handler skills into scenario based training Bringing it all together in a modern training format. Understanding the concept of a minimum number of skills in a maximum number of environments. Creating robust behaviors that work in a law enforcement context.

2 Hours, 5 Minutes
This 2 hour video was also done with the RCMP. In it we train a dog to track in a suburban and urban environment. In Level 1 Tracking (Video 205) we taught the dog to track in the country. The reason all police dogs must first learn to track in the country is because the country is relatively distraction free. We actually teach the dog to track in the country and then use a large part of the Level II & III teaching the dog to deal with the distractions of the city. In this video the dogs learn to deal with extreme distractions (ie. dogs barking on the other side of a fence, cats in back yards, kids following along). The dog's also learn to deal with much smaller scent pictures, more cross tracks and extreme cover changes. Most people think that handling a tracking dog simply means holding on to the line and just following the dog. In fact, completing a successful track is the result of 75% proper handling and 25% good dog work. This tape teaches hard surface road crossings along with extended periods of track loss (where the dog must search and search for a lost track). We teach the handler the true meaning of "reading your dog". Every successful K-9 handler is a master at recognizing negatives and assisting his dog in reacquiring the lost track. If you are a canine officer in a large city, do not buy this tape thinking you can skip the Level I country training just because you never track outside the city. The country work is critical to the development of a good tracking dog. Dogs must first learn to track the country before they are exposed to distractions of city tracking. If you try and skip country tracking you will fail. Guaranteed. Try Leerburg Leather Tracking Articles with your training!

Police canine training programs need to simulate actual street situations. In this 1 hour and 33 minute video, we set up a number of common scenarios that have actually happened with Canine Teams. We show what happens when the average Police Service Dog is placed in these situations. We recommend several changes to training programs that will compensate for past mistakes. You will see how these changes result in a safer situation for the officers and their dogs. When a Canine Handler responds to a call with outside officers who have never worked with police dogs, the handler must be familiar with the procedure to control the situation. In the video we explain how to organize a search team. We explain how to brief the team on each member's responsibilities. You will see several excellent searches and you will also see what can happen when a canine search goes bad. Safe gun handling reaches a new dimension when a dog is added. Working a dog under friendly fire, handler fire, and shots fired by the suspect are all covered in detail. We show how dangerous a dog can be to his own handler and other officers if it is aggressive to gun fire. We also show how to train a dog not to be aggressive to gun fire. Arrest procedures with a dog are covered in detail. If you are working a canine on the street, this video has information that may save your life.

Every new puppy owner has the same image of what they want their new dog to be like as an adult. First and foremost, everyone wants a great relationship with their dog but beyond that, those who plan on keeping their dog in their home want a calm, well-mannered, obedient house dog that minds and respects their family and friends. Those who plan on keeping their dog outside want a calm well-mannered dog that is respectful to the family and is quiet in the yard or kennel. They only want their dog to bark at strangers that come near the home. New dog owners think the road to success only involves obedience training and house training new puppies. Don't get me wrong--puppies need to be house trained and they need obedience training--but these are only two small parts of a much larger program needed to produce calm, obedient, well-mannered, respectful house dogs that have a good relationship with their owners. Let me give you a few facts to think about which will help make my point. We start with the misconception of "how obedience training leads to a well-mannered house dog." The best training system there is (which is operant conditioning or training with markers which we will talk about later) involves multiple short training sessions throughout the day. Training 4 or 5 times a day for 2 to 3 minutes in a session is much more effective than training one 20 minute session a day. Training 5 times a day for 3 minutes at a time is 15 minutes. What about the other 23 hours and 45 minutes in the day? What happens with those who happen to get a challenging puppy – one that bites, barks, is a little wild or a little too independent? Local obedience classes teach very specific behaviors: Sit Down Come Stay Walk on a leash The problem with young puppies is they cannot and should not be expected to perform a behavior (like a down stay) for long periods of time. With training we can expect compliance for up to 30 seconds but not much longer. We compare puppies to 2-year-old children. What do we expect in compliance from human babies? Not much. The same goes for our puppies.
