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.
