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

Canine Conversations - Dog Training Podcast

Mar 3 2023 • 1 hr 56 mins

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.
