The guys site down with Carlos Ramirez. Carlos is currently the head trainer at iK9 in Anniston Alabama. They talk about Carlos’ journey from growing up in Puerto Rico taking care of farm animals, to playing volleyball for their national team and then the University of Ohio, to going to the Tom Rose School for Dog trainers and working at Trikos International. The guys address the importance of proper decoying in maintenance training. He also gives some great insight into decoying for both green and seasoned handlers.
