Re: Recommended book on RCMP police dogs
If the referral of offence was to me,(I see my post was removed that;s cool), I am not offended nor was I trying to be disruptive. Of course dog training for the military and police have evolved just as dog training for the sport and other venues have evolved. Some of the things of today have vastly improved and some of the things of thirty years ago are still very effective. My point is there are many angles to training dogs that are effective and the effectiveness usually depends on the individual handler/trainer/and of course the dog. Most longtime trainers I know use a hybrid of older techniques and newer techniques. I just like to be exposed to all the different angles or training methods and see for myself their effectiveness. That's why when somebody brings something to the table, its nice if it is disussed on its merit as opposed to being stepped on with instant referral back to what we have discussed ad nauseum. Unless, a person is seeking a comparison for discussion sake. There are many many great trainers of police dogs in the world and I am one that likes to be exposed to information,(like the RCMP methods), and will sift thru what I like or don't like.
Sorry to ruffle feathers, just wanted to discuss the book more, but I'll depart so things can remain as were ....peace!
