Whats with the handler in the water with his dog? Going into the water to get a suspect is a TERRIBLE idea.
This was part of an obstical course...They ran over a large berm,
dog and handler jumped a large rolled hay bale,
around a fence in sugar sand,
over a wall,
into the water for about 70ft,
up a drain pipe,
to an open field with a decoy,
release dog for bite,
through the wood,
passive decoy on exit,
through the field,
up a huge dirt berm,
down the steep hill into chest deep water for another 70 ft.
I came to the conclusion this was not a normal training session. It was K9 officers from all over the state participating. I would guess there were at least 50 or so officers and thier dogs.
In one area they were tracking, another was the obstical course, another was the car jacking scenerio, and an area they were firing a gun.
