CLASS: Intro to K9 Tactical Responder

You hear the gunshot, followed by a squeal of pain from your K9. When the $h!+# hits the fan, what do you do next?  This seminar teaches you both the knowledge and hands-on skills you need to make that decision and then take the best treatment action. Whether your K9 is bleeding profusely or was stabbed in the chest, we’ll teach what to do, when to do it, and how to do it… with plenty of hands-on practice. And because not all line-of-duty threats are traumatic, we will also cover heat injuries… the leading cause of preventable deaths in Working K9s.
