Decoy Tactics and Canine Behavior

Most Decoy/ Helper courses are geared towards the sport aspect of decoy work. Our program starts with understanding the dog and what drives him. We then apply it into the context of his working nature and how to shape the dog's behavior to make him a confident street dog. We assure you that you have not experienced this perspective at any other Decoy/ Helper class you may have attended.

The course is designed to provide a basic understanding of canine behavior as it applies to shaping aggression in green and experienced dogs used in Law Enforcement and Military applications. Handlers and student decoys will learn goal oriented exercises in shaping aggression in working dogs. This is a "hands-on" course and all participants will engage in line work, open field exercises, and will be provided with instruction in the bite sleeve, full body bite suit, hidden sleeves and muzzle work. The course will also involve (1) day of classroom with lectures on behavior and safety issues.
