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.
The dog leader must have proficient in basic freefall techniques (German Army standard/ part 1) and should have about 150 freefall jumps using ram air parachutes (40 thereof within the previous 6 months), 15 thereof with personal cargo.
Trainees need to demonstrate an acceptable level of freefall skills during the first days of the training.
