Upcoming K9 Courses

5 Day Advanced Decoy Course, November 7-11, 2022
Brighton, CO

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, teach targeting, problem-solve, and much more. Let your decoy be an asset, not a liability, to your K9 teams. Optional Patrol K9 team certifications are available for an additional cost.
