What was getting your first K9 like? The good, the bad, and the ugly; we get into it with this episode!
Your WDR Hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with a former Army Tactical Explosive Detection Dog (TEDD) handler, current Police K9 officer in upstate South Carolina and owner of Carolina Canine Academy, Jason Dutton.
The gents talk with Dutton about his time going from never having handled or trained a K9 before, to becoming a TEDD handler, then going to Von Liche Kennels and K2 for training with his dog. Dutton talks about the the start of (and shortcomings of) that program, and what his experience was like training with his dog. Dutton’s job was to lead patrols in Afghanistan and search for IEDs, but he found out his dog had Canine PTSD from a IED blast, which affected his dog’s ability to work. He also shares the story of his first deployment going on patrol outside the wire; not just as U.S. Army asset, but as a NATO asset, and he got to work with Polish Special Forces.
Canine isn’t all sex and rock and roll, there can be an underbelly to it, and Dutton was not shy to hit on some of the hard topics with our hosts. You won’t want to miss this!
