MadDog becomes a k-9 Handler

Well I just became a K-9 Handler. One of the dogs in this video will be my dog. I am supposed get her tomorrow, and begin the whole training process. I am pretty excited about the whole thing. Jenny is a drug dog, and a bite dog. So I'm also apprehensive about the whole thing. I hope this video works, I made this video about a year ago, while Jenny was being trained.
The reason I'm getting her, is because her current hanlder just quit. It's kind of strange, because normally you say well now we have to train the dog, but in the situation, they are gonna have to train me to handle the dog. Oh well, I just thought you all might be interested to know.[



  1. Congrats on becoming a k-9 handler!  I hope everything goes well for you.  I myself am going to school to be a police officer and would like  to become a k-9 handler.  Once again, Congrats!

  2. Yea!!  Super fun!  I remember when you had this video up before.. [warning--stupid questions coming on]... weren\'t you one of the guys in the bite suit?  Does she remember that?  Will that affect your relationship with her?

  3. I was one of the guys in the bite suit, but no it won\'t affect that. In fact I\'m sure now i will be wearing the bite suit a lot more often. I don\'t know how to explain it except for that when she bites she is given specific commands, and it is like a game to her. I have never seen her show any aggression towards me, except the time that I had this bite suit on. She also recognizes the suit, and knows it.
