There is no place for toys, tugs and treats in our training. Our dogs work for the handler plain and simple. We choose to take our time in training. Exposing our dogs to every possible encounter imaginable, so whether placed in your home or working on duty, our dogs have seen it, dealt with it and moved on.
Our training methods are different from 99% of what is out there because we do not believe that we are teaching our dogs anything new. We are simply communicating with our dogs to use their natural abilities for our benefit. You'll see that there is no ego involved in what we do, which is a significant shift from saying "we teach our dogs to bite" or "we teach our dogs to track".
The fact is that ALL dogs bite, we simply teach our dogs when it is okay to bite and when it is not. ALL dogs track, through communication and praise, our dogs track specifically who or what we ask of them. By removing our egos and refraining from imposing human psychology on our dogs, we are free to work with them in an unlimited capacity.
Is it possible to custom train one of our working dogs?
Absolutely. If you have a specific job for your dog or maintain a lifestyle that brings about unique challenges, we are more than happy to work with you to train the perfect LATIGO K9 Working Dog for you. This could be city living, maritime travel, air travel, etc.
