Drax The Destroyer. Dogs can think, adapt and fight. When raised correctly, in tune with nature, anything is possible....Before folks ask, yes we do live fire drills with our handlers and dogs. Why? Blanks don’t count, neither does setting the tool down before the dog even gets to the “adversary ”...sport training has ruined working dogs. Dogs must take the appendage holding the weapon...believe me dogs know the difference between live fire and blanks, they behave and react very differently to both. I personally run all live fire drills and in twenty years, training thousands of dogs, I have never harmed a dog or handler. I am very aware of my “foreground and background” here. Yes, we do send our dogs on armed individuals....weapons are not always present at time of deployment. Never forget, if the bead is on the dog it isn’t on you or teammates....fight with your fucking dogs people. Dogs give one distance, time and space...use it, and fight accordingly.
Our dogs have been around live fire since 6 weeks of age...they are indifferent to all tools. Handlers and teammates are NOT targets just because they hold a tool...just because you don’t know how to do it, doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
Drax is doing what we call “reversing”, ie fighting. Reversing allows the dog to avoid taking unnecessary punishment from the “adversary”....take notice on the out of car deployment.... These are VERY BASIC and FUNDAMENTAL drills....Handlers
