Decoys and Aggression: A Police K9 Training Manual
Stephen Mackenzie
Being a good decoy for police dogs involves more than putting on a sleeve or bite suit and taking bites. This book explains step by step how to understand the canine paralanguage and how to use your own body to communicate with the dog. It then explains the different types of natural dog aggression and how to use its own language to trigger the useful types without being abusive to the dog. Also describes drills designed to develop skill in the decoy. Some are designed to be conducted with dogs until the human demonstrates enough body control to work with a live animal without injuring the dog or himself. Essential reading for all decoys, instructors and students alike, as well as for K9 personnel, handlers, and trainers. Published by Temeron, © 1996, 88 pages
