Episode 121: Dogs down under with Brad Griggs⁣

⁣Your Working Dog Radio Hosts sit down with Brad Griggs, owner of Canine Services International in Melbourne, Australia, and host of The STIM Podcast! This episode kicks off the first episode of our Australian 🇦🇺🐨🦘 specials! Brad has a beard to rival that of Ted’s, and almost 2 decades’ experience training dogs. We chat about the differences in legislation between the States and Down Under (both in breed bans, and bitework bans!), the effect that has on training, and even in popular dog sports.⁣ ⁣

So sit down🪑 , tune in 🎧, and learn a thing or two 🤓 from Australia’s leading Dog Bite PREVENTION Specialist! (And maybe suffer some beard envy while you’re at it 😂)⁣ ⁣ ⁣

Episode 120: Winning Adult Hide and Seek with Mic Bonin

“Can’t bite ‘em if you can’t find ‘em” This episode is truly mind blowing 🤯 with the Hide and Seek Expert, Mic Bonin; proving that K9 guys really are the Swiss Army knives of LEO 😎🐕! Mic started tracking at the ripe young age of 12 in southeast Texas, joined the Army in 1996, then Tulsa County Sheriff Office in 2005. He was a member of SWAT, and was part of the sniper team for 10 years – and he essentially gave dogs the platform to make K9 tracking a bigger deal. Tune in to hear stories about his longest track done on duty (6 miles long 😱), about one track on armed robbers (and how the money was recovered 💰), bust some myths about tracking in the snow ❄️, and the debate on should handlers be trained as visual trackers 🤔? The guys also delve into tactical tracking vs patrol, and discuss investigative tracking, patrol/SAS tracking, and SAR tracking. Mic is the real tracking deal, and you can learn more through SpearPoint Training Group (@sptraininggroup) www.sptraininggroup.com or www.nalet.org

Episode 118: This is Africa with Pete from Working Dogs for Conservation⁣

⁣Your hosts, Ted and Eric, talked with Pete Copilillo from Working Dogs For Conservation. As the world’s leading conservation detection dog organization, their mission (which is multi-tiered in Africa, as well as in the US ) of using the dogs’ incredible sense of smell to help protect ecosystems and to help scientists gather information on endangered species, cannot be understated. Additionally, Working Dogs for Conservation uses the dogs, mostly rescues, to track and find invasive species of plants and animals.  WD4C is on the leading edge of pairing dogs with modern technology to hunt down poachers who are killing elephants, rhinos, and many other animals in Africa. Want to get involved? You can help them with monetary donations, as well as dog donations. Check out this episode to get the full scoop, and then head to their site to learn more and support them! ⁣ www.wd4c.org⁣ (Make sure to watch on YouTube to see the video version and watch until the end to see outtakes from this episode) ⁣ ⁣ ⁣𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗢𝗙 𝗖𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗦𝗘, thank you to our amazing partners:⁣ ⁣ @KineticDogFood⁣ kineticdogfood.com⁣ 513-615-6904⁣ ⁣ @horizonstructures⁣ 888-447-4337⁣ horizonstructures.com/commercial-dog-kennels⁣ ⁣ ⁣@southerncoastk9⁣ 877.903.DOGS⁣ southerncoastk9.com⁣ ⁣ @rayallenk9 ⁣ rayallen.com⁣ Discount code “WORKINGDOGRADIO” for 10% off⁣ ⁣ @dogtraofficial ⁣ dogtra.com⁣ Discount code “WDR10” for 10% off of a single item over $200⁣ ⁣ @hits_k9 Training and Conference ⁣ Jeff Barrett at 863-529-5113⁣ hitsk9.net⁣ ⁣ @quickdermbyvetcare ⁣ vetcare.us⁣ Discount code “10WDR” for 10% off of your first order⁣ ⁣ @tacticalpolicek9⁣ tacticalpolicek9training.com⁣ ⁣ @almk9equipment⁣ almk9equipment.com⁣ Discount code “WDRADIO” for 10% off of your first order⁣ ⁣ @tripwire_operations_group ⁣ tripwireops.org⁣ ⁣ Music with permission by @brotherdege ⁣ www.brotherdege.net⁣ #workingdogradio #broadcastingthebite⁣

Episode 117: USPCA Director Don Slavik⁣

Your hosts Eric @vanessk9 and Ted @ted_summers chatted with the current Executive Director of the USPCA, Don Slavik. Slavik worked for the St. Paul K9 department in the 80’s and 90’s as a handler and trainer, and they discussed what it’s like working a Rottweiler K9. 🤔 Slavik was a trainer, instructor, and course developer for ATF. 🧨 He developed and wrote lesson plans for two classes on Air Movement and its effects on explosives odors and legal issues for explosive canine teams. He evaluated several sites in Thailand for the U.S. Department of State on a proposed 175 dog kennel in Thailand for the Royal Thailand Police. As a Subject Matter Expert (SME), Slavik was selected as the Lead Trainer charged with training a class of dogs for a credible threat in a foreign country for the Department of State. He was also a Department of State GTM, monitoring all DOS canine teams in Iraq. Slavik has lectured on a variety of topics nationally and is an expert witness.⁣ LATELY, the USPCA has been quietly working with canine industry professionals, searching for information on the current environment for police patrol dogs’ in the U.S. From this discussion comes a series of articles involving police dogs guided by their training, supervision, and policies. The first article that will appear in the next Canine Courier is “Best Practices in Contemporary Canine” – so get your paws on a copy of that 😎 Across the board, this was an enlightening interview, and definitely an episode you will not want to miss!!⁣ ⁣ ⁣𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗢𝗙 𝗖𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗦𝗘, thank you to our amazing partners:⁣ ⁣ ⁣ @KineticDogFood⁣ www.kineticdogfood.com⁣ 513-615-6904⁣ ⁣ @horizonstructures⁣ 888-447-4337⁣ www.horizonstructures.com/commercial-dog-kennels⁣ ⁣ ⁣ @southerncoastk9⁣ 877.903.DOGS⁣ https://www.southerncoastk9.com⁣ ⁣ @rayallenk9 ⁣ www.rayallen.com⁣ Discount code “WORKINGDOGRADIO” for 10% off⁣ ⁣ @dogtraofficial ⁣ www.dogtra.com⁣ Discount code “WDR10” for 10% off of a single item over $200⁣ ⁣ @hits_k9 Training and Conference ⁣ Jeff Barrett at 863-529-5113⁣ www.hitsk9.net⁣ ⁣ @quickdermbyvetcare ⁣ www.vetcare.us⁣ Discount code “10WDR” for 10% off of your first order⁣ ⁣ @tacticalpolicek9⁣ www.tacticalpolicek9training.com⁣ ⁣ @almk9equipment⁣ www.almk9equipment.com⁣ Discount code “WDRADIO” for 10% off of your first order⁣ ⁣ @tripwire_operations_group ⁣ www.tripwireops.org⁣ ⁣ Music with permission by @brotherdege ⁣ www.brotherdege.net⁣ #workingdogradio #broadcastingthebite⁣ ⁣

Episode 116: Bald Headed 3rd Grader ⁣ ⁣

Your hosts chatted with Sr Agent Anthony Moore, of the Special Operations Division of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN) 😎, stationed in Oklahoma City, and working as a member of the K9 Highway Interdiction team 👊. Moore handles one of these incredible K9’s, and as a certified trainer and instructor 🐕, he chats about the incredible importance of leash proficiency and obedience in that environment. The boys also talked about large seizures and how they are connected to terrorism, further solidifying the importance of the work the team does 💪.
