This course is designed for units with specialized dog leader (K9 unit).
The qualification aim of the training is to qualify the trainees to perform military jumps together with their dogs. The course is a mix between standard cargo jumps (with personal cargo) and heavy cargo/passenger jumps. Due to the fact that dogs being animals having there own idea on this (against there nature) special procedure, dog and trainee should having experience working together.
We offer two different ways for the training; either jumps with real dogs or jumps with dummy dogs.
