K9 Decoy Schools

Decoy Training Done Right

Complete Canine Training is proud to offer K9 decoy courses for all law enforcement and military agencies in the US. We have basic, advanced, and problem-solving decoy courses. We will set up a custom course specific to your unit needs as well.

Long gone are the days (or at least they should be) when we throw the rookie into the suit. Putting an inexperienced person in a bite suit is not helping any K9 team get better. In fact, that’s how dogs and people get hurt. It is time to start choosing the right personnel for the job and ensuring they get the proper training to do the job effectively.

Complete Canine Training’s Decoy School will improve your decoy skills, if you are a seasoned vet or beginner you will learn from our course. After this course, decoys are able to start puppy bite work, build green dogs up, develop proper biting habits, teach targeting, problem-solve, and much more. Let your decoy be an asset, not a liability, to your K9 teams.

The problem-solving course is more for the dogs than the decoys. This course is aimed specifically at solving patrol dogs’ problems with biting and engaging and teaching the decoys how to do this as well. We have solved issues with non-engagement, shallow biting, equipment fixation, and much more. During this course, we will solve K9 problems and teach handlers and decoys how to fix the current issues and any others we may expose while training.
