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.

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.

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.

This 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 knock out an individual.

I went to my first Schutzhund seminar in October 1974. I was instantly hooked on protection dog training. During the next 10 years I went to every seminar I could find in this country on training protection dogs, Schutzhund dogs, and police service dogs. In 1983 I produced my first bite training video titled "Protection Training the Beginning with Bernhard Mannel." In the 13 years that followed I learned so much more about protection training that I was forced to update that old video and pass this new information on to my customers. This is being done through this new training tape "The First Steps of Bite Training."

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.
