Upcoming K9 Courses
3 Day Police K9 Decoy Course – October 18-20 2021
Des Moines, IA
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 will be able to start puppy bite work, build green dogs up, develop proper biting, teach targeting, problem solve, and much more. Let your decoy be an asset, not a liability, to your K9 teams. The course will conclude in decoy certifications and include optional K9 team certifications for an additional cost.
Street Readiness Tactical Training (SRTT) Course (Tentatively Summer 2021)
This course is designed to improve K9 teams in every possible way. Get yourself and your K9 partner ready for work on the streets with intense scenario-based training. In our SRTT courses, we will push you as a team to deal with critical thinking scenarios, high-risk deployment scenarios, and extremely dynamic scenarios. The goal of this course is to show you real-life scenarios that make you think and push your K9 beyond their comfort zone.
K9-Field Training Officer Course
We are proud supporters of the online K9-FTO course. This course is designed for Law Enforcement Officers, K9 Supervisors, and Private K9 Professionals. This course is online only currently but will become a classroom course with live training and scenarios in 2018. The course is designed to make a newly K9 handler’s transition to the field as effective and efficient as possible. This course covers procedures, policies, case law, K9 maintenance, and much more.
