EPISODE 56: Oh Canada with Bob Eden


The guys talk with Bob Eden of KATS K9.   Bob was a handler for a longggg time and shares some stories and trials of running a dog in a lengthy career.  Bob owns KATS K9 and Bob Eden Consulting.  They discuss policy, liability, case law, and training records.   For Patrons,  Bob mentions a list of questions that he gives to prosecutors that he wants them to ask him, I attached them below.  We asked him to supply us with those.  They are aimed at tracking but can be reworked for any working team.    https://katsplatinum.com/ https://policek9.com

Episode 54: Friggin Lasers with Matt Yoder

We sit Matt Yoder and talk about friggin lasers! Matt was a handler on a large active SWAT unit on the east coast. We cover the ah-ha moment when Matt decided he needed a way to direct his dog to specific locations during a deployment without compromising cover or concealment. We talk about how to integrate the laser directionals correctly, some of the pit falls of using them, and of course, the benefits. Thank you Matt!!

Episode 53: The State of K9 RANT

In this no holds barred episode the guys leave nothing unsaid. They talk Blue Falconing of your brothers to get ahead… we pulled an IA complaint written to try and get Eric fired by a woman in this industry who pretends to be pro police, we call out shooting towards your dog and shitty, dangerous transfer bite trainers who call you military and LE Handlers “Bottom of the Barrel” and the lies they tell to sell their bull… we talk bad policy, departments that make you buy your own dog and much MUCH more. Crack a beer and turn up the volume.

Ben is an active handler in Pennsylvania and a USPCA trainer covering advanced training and Ray is a co-owner of High Risk Deployment K9. They talk about the need for certifications and what they mean; and don’t mean.

Episode 52 (c): Recorded Live from BlueLine K9 Conference Shallow Creek Kennels John Brannon

We were honored to sit down with John Brannon of Shallow Creek kennels. John talks about his start in K9 in Florida and how Shallow Creek came to be. He goes through the evolution of starting as a small kennel and growing it to be one of the largest in the country and the pitfalls and upsides he’s faced. Also… we were EXTREMELY intrigued to see his cloned Working Dogs work so we talk about how Shallow Creek was approached by a South Korean bio-tech company to clone the Malinois, the success of the cloning and about the two dogs they received out of the program. Thank you John!!

Episode 50: “Pepper’s Handler” Dave Nielsen

Episode 50: “Pepper’s Handler” Dave Nielsen
The guys got the honor to sit down with Dave Nielsen. Dave’s service to our country spans almost two decades, first with the 75th Ranger Regiment and then went into a Special Missions unit as an assaulter, dog handler, and sniper. His story was featured in Channing Tatum’s HBO documentary “War Dogs” retelling the story of three dog handlers and their canine counterparts from the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). He shares stories of his dog “Pepper” who was killed while rooting out an enemy from a sewer hole in Iraq on the banks of the Tigris River and searched for her all night but had to leave once the sun was coming up as they were in enemy-held territory. Dave also talks about what’s its like to retire a second time (this one for good) and gives advice to anyone considering handling a dog in law enforcement or the military. Besides being one of the nicest guys Dave is very outspoken about loss and open about veteran suicide and how to combat it and although we didn’t touch on it in this episode we highly recommend you listen to his most recent podcast with John Hendricks and Global Recon. Thank you Dave!
