TK9 CONDUCT MAINTENANCE TRAINING FOR GALLUP POLICE DEPARTMENTS K9 UNIT – AUGUST 2015

IMG_4686

Tactical K9 conducted another assigned K9 training workshop for this fine unit.  Our contract for maintenance training is very unique – we do not visit once a month for one day of training.  We have found this does not work – a unit needs more time to identify and problem solve their unique issues.  This cannot be done in one day.  Our 5 day workshops do the trick.  In fact each team assists in identifying issues as well as problem solving with their own team becoming much more self sufficient.  Depending on once a month training simply does not work and surely does not advance a unit.  We usually conduct (4) to (5)  five day workshops throughout the year.
