S.K.I.D.D.S. and CATS is a unique and one-of-a-kind K9 and K9 SWAT school
S.K.I.D.D.S. and CATS is designed to educate and train both canine handlers, SWAT and Tactical Teams on the deployment of police dogs in a SWAT Operation. During S.K.I.D.D.S. and CATS you will participate in numerous stealth entries, live gunfire and simmunition scenarios. Teams will learn the latest canine searching methods, deployment and arrest techniques.
Determine how your police dog functions and how they can be used to assist SWAT during a SWAT deployment as well as in a standard patrol K9 search operation. Acquire the knowledge to select the proper police dog for your SWAT Team. Train as a team under realistic conditions before you are called out for a real deployment. Attend a Liability Seminar on “Failure To Train” by Attorney Gene Ramirez.
Most of the training courses you attend as a police officer occur inside a classroom and require no physical exertion. This course will differ greatly because 70% of the class will be outside of the classroom doing practical application exercises. For those that do not understand canines and have misconceptions as to just how beneficial canines can be to a SWAT Team, S.K.I.D.D.S. is the answer.
