056: Police K9 Targeting & Fendeds

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • Why to train targeting in police dogs.
  • Using fendeds in training.
  • Training secondary targets.
  • How to decoy the dog while training targeting and fendeds.

Key Takeaways:

  • Create a dog that has a habit to bite in a place and doesn’t have to make decisions at the last minute.
  • Be patient when teaching secondary targets – the dog will often not recognize it as a target at first.
  • Repetition is the key – the dog will get faster, more confident, and more fluid the more you practice.
  • Notate the targeting training in your training records.

Train Hard, train smart, be safe

“We are trying to create a dog that doesn’t think when he comes in for a bite. What we are trying to do is create a muscle memory habit in the dog.” — Jerry Bradshaw
