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!

Episode 48 : High Achievements with a Lowering Kit

Army Ranger, Green Beret, K9 Handler, Double Amputee, Ballroom Dancer. Should we go on? Sit and be inspired by a man who has served in some of the most elite military units both before and AFTER losing both legs on duty and how (in his words) after receiving his “lowering kit” he never let it or anything stop him from achieving any goal. We talk everything from the opioid crisis in our injured veterans and how he approached it, to the organizations who helped him, the organization he is now part of helping others and what he does in his spare time. Be sure to follow Chris on IG (once he figures out how to use it) @2004vmc and Facebook NOW at MSG Chris Corbin!
