Dog handler training
Our training is not based on a number of hours or a list of theoretical courses to follow. The work of a dog handler in detection does not take place behind a desk with books, but in the field in real life!
This is why our training is based with a single objective: an independent certification
A certification like that of the American Working Dog Association is assessed by a qualified trainer who is independent from the handler, but also from the person who trained the dog with the handler. This evaluation allows an independent opinion which would have real value before the courts, but also towards our training. The certification which is done annually thereafter confirms the maintenance of the team’s skills during their career.
By its scenarios in unknown places and its evaluation criteria, it is also a good way to show that the dog team is ready to start going on the field.
We train canine units which can then work in the private sector in the following specializations:
- Drug detection
- Bed bug detection
- Firearms detection
- Patrol dog handler (private security)
- Intervention dog handler (private security)
- Detection of explosives / bombs (under conditions)
Our trainings include theory to fully understand how detection and the dog work, but the dog training side takes most of the time.
Start of next training: September 19, 2020
Duration: The trainings are given by half-day period (4 hours) and this by group of 3 to 5 teams. The total duration of the training is not fixed since some will reach the objective more quickly, ie certification. The skills of the handler, his commitment and the abilities of the dog as well as his age will vary the duration, but it can be estimated between 2 months and 1 year.
Location: In Sherbrooke, in our training room of over 5000sqft
Dog: We use shepherd dogs like the German Shepherd or the Malinois, but also hunting dogs like the Labrador, the pointers, the Golden Retriever, the spaniels or others. You can already have your dog that we will assess or we can help you find a dog that will suit your needs.
For all information please write to us by email or on our Facebook page. We can send you the details, costs and registration form.
IMPORTANT: This training is not intended to train canine interveners, behaviorists, dog trainers, or other profession that advises clients with behavioral and dog training problems. It is only intended to train handlers in specific areas of drug detection, bedbugs, explosives or other substances as well as protection.
