K9 Supervisor Training

Police and Military K9 Supervisor Training


A K9 team is often regarded as one of the highest liability units within any agency or department.  Properly and effectively managing K9 teams requires and considerable amount of training, knowledge and understanding of policies and regulations.  As a K9 Supervisor, you are responsible of every facet of your K9 unit operations.  This includes the selection of handlers, dogs as well as the day-to-day operations, deployments and field activities of these teams.  Whether you are a supervisor of a small department with only one K9 team or a large department with multiple teams, proper K9 supervisory training is a must.

Often, many K9 Supervisors don't clearly understand their roles and responsibilities which can lead to improper utilization and liability.  In order to mitigate this liability and obtain consistent productivity from any K9 unit, K9 Supervisors should be knowledgeable about the activities, duties, responsibilities as well as the strengths and deficiencies of those within the unit.  Whether you are a direct supervisor or an administrator, effective K9 supervisor training is a must to ensure that you maintain productivity to guarantee a solid return on the investment of your K9 teams.  Our K9 Supervisor Training will also allow you to understand a number of liability and FLSA pitfalls so that you can effectively safeguard against them.
