Trainers Course In Working Serviceä
Training By Dogman Mike McConnery
Learn to train working service philosophy and present some realism into your training. Our courses are generally offered in two, three week sessions overlapping our Bootcamps. This provides the applicant the opportunity to work with the public as well as privately with us for one week. We have designed this split course to allow those already running training facilities the ability to take a short leave of absence for their work schedule. It provides an opportunity to work in the field with the knowledge you have learned and return for your second session with new questions and problems fresh in mind.
We do not follow a rigid class schedule, rather work to the level and ability of the people participating. This outline below is a general course outline only. Feel free to ask questions or suggest materials you would like to cover while here. All courses have a hands-on approach with most theory taught in the field while working. Course content can be altered and customized to suit individual need. We recommend you bring one or two of your own dogs to work with as well. The dogs should have varying degrees or levels of training. The training should suit the level of course you are attending. Our own dogs are available to work with as well.
Directed at those who desire to learn on a public format. This course will give the applicant more than enough hands-on knowledge to conduct public classes, and begins into the training of dogs required for personal & home defense. It is aimed at those who desire to train dogs not intended for tactical work or as a foundation for those who desire to further their knowledge later. The kit necessary for this course is B.D.U.s , boots suitable for outdoor use, and clothing geared to the climate and the season you will train in. All leads, collars, long line, and harness are provided for by us and become the property of the applicant. The course is offered in two separate, 3 week segments. It is run overlapping our K-9 Soldier Bootcamp which allows you participate with those attending the Bootcamp as well as one week working with us privately.
