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.

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 💪.

McDonald and Beplay talk about their deployments as US Army Rangers, various stories, and lessons learned during the Global War on Terror.  Beplay recounts the first time he saw a MPC work on target.

Episode 112: Training is feeding, feeding is training with Dick Staal

Can’t teach an old dog a new trick? Think again! 💪 The boys sat down with Sgt. Dick Staal, master-trainer/instructor with the Netherlands’ National Police Agency’s K9-unit (K.L.P.D.). Staal has been training dogs since the 1970’s, and has had his own pin point system since then, including methods for teaching search techniques for evidence/lost objects, retrieves, proper alerts, tracking, suspect searches, obedience, obstacles, and of course – bite work. Staal full heartedly believes in working the puppy from the moment it leaves the litter, and his techniques are proven over and over again with every Police Service Dog 👮‍♂️ or sport dog 🏆 he produces. We even get to hear a little about retraining any odor 👃 on an experienced dog, and how to put it all together on a hard surface track. You will not want to miss this one! So sit down, shut up, and learn something! And after you’re done with the podcast, pick up his book 📚, “From puppy to working, sporting or police dog”, and thank us later. 👊 Go give him a follow on Facebook at Dog Training Dick Staal or visit his website dogtrainingdickstaal.com⁣
