Episode 108 - Training, Buying. and Selling Police Dogs - Mike Reaver Adlerhorst K9

Episode 108 - Training, Buying. and Selling Police Dogs - Mike Reaver Adlerhorst K9
Mike Reaver of Adlerhorst K9 has been involved in police dogs for most of his life. The son of Dave Reaver, founder of Adlerhorst K9 and the father of "police dogs." Mike and I finally got a chance to sit down and talk about police dogs, buying, training and selling them and most importantly the lives they save. Adlerhorst has placed thousands of police dogs, military k9 and personal protection dogs over the last 50+ years. We discuss the critical topic of CA Assembly Bill AB 742 - the bill that aims at eliminating police dogs as we know them. This is dangerous for police officers and deadly for citizens that are protected by these dogs every single day. This chat is one of the longest podcasts I've done and I think you'll agree that it could have gone on for a lot longer. Mike is a man of great character, a guy who loves dogs and speaks from his heart and soul.

Episode 107 - Are Police Dogs Racist - with Michael Goosby

Episode 107 - Are Police Dogs Racist - with Michael Goosby
California Assembly Bill CA AB740 is being presented by California Assemblyman Corey Jackson. This bill aims at eliminating the use of police canines (k9s) in many situations including apprehending potentially dangerous suspects. He claims the bill will help right the wrongs of the past - a "carryover from a dark past." He uses inciteful language such as: "The use of police canines has inflicted brutal violence and lifelong trauma on Black Americans and communities of color," and more. This type of language will create knee-jerk reactions among policymakers and place many people, especially those in under-served communities in great danger. We've seen the problems things like defunding the police does to communities and I hope this video will open people's eyes to the true benefit of police canines. Michael Goosby is a decorated LAPD police officer, he served as chief K9 trainer for the LAPD and has been a police officer for over 30 years! I can't imagine a person better qualified to talk on this topic than him. This chat will give you great insight from a man of the highest character, a police k9 expert, and a man of color who cares about people. I hope that Assemblyman Jackson will watch this video and rethink his position or at least sit down with someone like Michael to educate himself on this topic. I'm assuming he didn't before proposing / writing this bill. Please contact Assemblyman Jackson here to voice your concern: 1021 O Street, Suite 6120, P.O. Box 942849 Sacramento, CA 94249-0060 916-319-2060 assemblymember.jackson@assembly.ca.gov District Office #1: 18700 Lake Perris Drive Perris, CA 92571 951-943-6054 Use this link to find your representative, and make them aware that you oppose this bill: https://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov Police dogs SAVE LIVES... lives of black and brown Americans as well as all other law abiding citizens. People have a right to feel safe, in particular those living in high crime neighborhoods - police canines offer that!

Episode 105 - Service Dogs, The Real Ones, the Fake Ones and Getting Down to the Nitty Gritty

Episode 105 - Service Dogs, The Real Ones, the Fake Ones and Getting Down to the Nitty Gritty
What is a service dog and why are there so many people faking it? What can be done about it? There's nothing good about fake service dogs and I get to the bottom of it in this podcast with two experts from IACP. Michele Khol and Kristi Smith are service dog trainers and representatives from the IACP they were really straight forward with their opinions on what a REAL SERVICE DOG is and the issues that plague us. Both have trained many service dogs and are working with IACP, International Association of Canine Professionals to create standards in training and more.

Episode 103 - The Future of Dog Training with Nino Drowaert

Episode 103 - The Future of Dog Training with Nino Drowaert
Nino and I met at the IACP Conference in Sept 2022. We had several really great conversations and I thought sharing these with you would open your eyes about the similarities that dog trainers share and the passion that drives us. So much of what you see on the Social media is trainers critiquing each other and tearing other trainers down. Nothing could be further from the truth when you get two passionate, professional dog trainers / dog lovers together. This conversation is a short glimpse into the chats we shared in Florida and I think it will be a breath of fresh air to all the crap you are so used to seeing online. In this chat we talk about so many important topics, but the theme that runs throughout is "where is dog training and where is it heading?" We talk about the mindset, the personalities of dogs as well as dog trainers and the use of rewards and aversive in training. What has been the fallout thought the countries that ban the use of balanced training tools is also a huge topic we address about 1/2 way though the video. Thanks Nino for a great chat, I look forward to the next one.
