Jason started out working with dogs at a very young age putting on a bite suit for the first time at age 7. After spending 4 years in the United States Air Force as a Security Police Officer, he started his professional career working at VLK in 2000. In 2008, Jason started and operated the 1st American owned working dog kennel in Europe. Living and working alongside of Europeans gave Jason a different perspective on how Police dogs are breed, raised, and trained. Jason has dedicated his life to working dogs: according to Jason "It's all I've ever done". Jason has always said "Run your dog, not your mouth".

FUNCTIONAL PATROL K9 DEPLOYMENTS FROM PATROL VEHICLE
This one day course is designed to help the K9 Handler think outside the box when it comes to deploying from the patrol unit in realistic training scenarios based on actual live deployments. This class will build on other courses taught at the conference including muzzle work, gunfire, tactical obedience, and formations during movement. Handlers will be given the building block they need to build their K9 teams from basic movements to high stress realistic training scenarios. Topics covered include: vehicle bail outs, door pops away from vehicle, high risk stops and vehicle assaults. This class will take the training beyond the basic level deployment to controlled chaos so when a real high stress deployment occurs, it's not chaos from the K9 team.
