Your Working Dog Radio hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with the host of Shots Fired podcast, Field Survival Training course instructor, and current K9 unit supervisor serving in Northern California, Police Sergeant Kyle Shoberg.
The gents covered a lot of ground in this episode, from how Shoberg first got into law enforcement at the age of 20, and his 15 years of law enforcement experience, to Shoberg being assigned to the K9 unit in 2014 (and how Shoberg was cautiously afraid of the dogs!), and his 7 years of K9 Handler experience, including working with the SWAT team (Shoberg is POST certified in SWAT & K9 Interacting During Deployment/SKIDDs).
Delving further, Shoberg has been a part of numerous critical incidents, including direct involvement in 4 officer involved shootings, over 500 K9 deployments, and over 60 K9 apprehensions. He is the recipient of several police commendations and awards, most notably two Medal of Valor’s, the Distinguished Service Medal, and a Life Saving Ribbon where he was credited for saving the life of an officer who had been shot in the line of duty. Shoberg has presented to various law enforcement agencies throughout the country, as well as speaking at several law enforcement conferences regarding officer wellness and debriefing his officer involved shootings.
