In this episode Eric and Ted talk to Mike Diehl. Mike is a police K9 handler and trainer in Indiana who also runs a very successful IPO club in the Indianapolis area. Mike talks about the importance of selection and testing for police dogs as well as sport dogs, the differences between the two and the reasoning behind it. They talk puppy selection and raising as well as the trials and tribulations of importing dogs from Europe to fulfill police contracts.
