Direct Action is comprised of trainers/ handlers from both the US Army and Navy Special Operations units as well as Law Enforcement Officers from multiple agencies. They have served at the most elite levels in their organizations and have years of experience handling K9s in the most demanding conditions both in combat and here at home. DAK9 utilizes real-world experience to train, not "theory".
TACTICAL K9 APPLICATIONS
Tactical K9 Applications is an 8 hour course which consists of realistic force-on-force scenarios. Each scenario was developed based on real world situations and experiences. This training will provide the student with the opportunity to react to real world situations, identifying individual strengths and weaknesses in your current training and tactics. Training scenarios will include building searches, tracking/area searches, vehicle stops, and both K9 and Officer casualty care. Each scenario will conclude with an in-depth After Action Review (AAR).
