Working dogs are valuable members of the law enforcement team, and the nature of their work exposes these canine members to unique hazards. Is your agency prepared to care for an injured K9? What will your K9 program do if one of its valuable members is critically injured at training or on a deployment?

The K9 Tactical Emergency Casualty Care course is a two-day HANDS-ON, intensive training focusing on treatment of working dog emergencies in the field. The course incorporates current TCCC and TECC guidelines with K9 specific anatomy and physiology to provide the most up-to-date life saving information available for working dogs. Training includes multiple interactive, casualty response situations in simulated tactical environments, using canine mannequins and other realistic training aids in dynamic scenarios.
