Your Working Dog Radio Hosts sit down with Ben Richards in the third episode of our Australian 🇦🇺 specials! ⁣ ⁣ Ben Richards is former Australian military, and former patrol dog handler (tune in to see what his dominant strength is: dog handling or firearms skills!) Richards also set up the TAC dog programme with the Northern Unit of the SWAT Special Emergency Response Team. Boasting Silver and Gold NePoPo certificates, he employed what he learned from the NePoPo system in the tactical K9 realm. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Richards successfully raised puppies and trained dogs for employment with the Special Air Service Regiment & we loved having the chance to pick his brain about everything from the history of police K9 in Australia, what led to creating the tactical K-9 unit, what he sees is the most important roll of the tactical K9. And growing pains getting it all going (and where the island country sources their dogs from!!)⁣ ⁣ So sit down, tune in, and learn a thing or two from this Australian legend!⁣ ⁣
