Jordan, training dogs for K9 units is very variable field. Some units have very good programs, others are just a big disaster. Some send their handlers to outside private companies for training, others have their own programs.. The more experience and credentials you have with both training and law enforcement the better chances you have of specifically training dogs for law enforcement. The big curve ball, is like anything else, sometimes it is hard to get in the door and involved with something if there already is a trainer imbedded in a particular system – even if the training is sub-par. We do hold certification courses and apprentices for those that want the credentials and skills to teach the dogs the tasks. But, that is only part of getting “in” with law enforcement.
