March 2, 2016

Queensland's finest gather for February workshop

Experience in abundance at K9 Solutions Australia's february Workshop.

Members of the Queensland Police Dog Squad exclusively booked K9 Solutions Australia's second workshop held in February at the Queensland Police Service training facility in Wacol and brought with them a wealth of knowledge and experience. Director of K9 Solutions Australia Ben Geurts said, “The Dog Squad is full of first class handlers and dogs, so we knew we had to bring our A game to the workshop. Working with such experienced professionals was an absolute pleasure.”

“The Queensland Police Dog Squad have always been willing to try something new in an effort to be better at what they do. They created the cadaver detection dog team back in 2006, which was a first of its kind in Australia, so there is a real drive within the organisation to continually look at how they conduct their operations and look for ways to improve. This is the level of commitment that brought them to K9 Solutions Australia, they heard there was something out there that will improve on what they do now” said Jason Kelly, Director of the working dog training company, adding "and we are glad that they did....it was a really good workshop."

Director and Trainer Jason Kelly is the target at K9 Solutions Australia's February workshop held at the Dog Squad facility at Wacol.

The current Queensland Police Dog Squad training course was originally developed based on the New Zealand system, and whilst the course has been modified and changed over the years, it is still undertaken by all Queensland Police handlers and dogs today. The number of operational handler/dog teams is constantly increasing as the demand for the dog squad’s specialised services grow.

“The Queensland Police Dog Squad is full of first class handlers and dogs, so we knew we had to bring our A game to the workshop. Working with such experienced professionals was an absolute pleasure.”

"Our focus was to collaboratively work with the QPS handlers and their dogs using our core training methods and show how those methods can fit into what they do on a daily basis," comments Jason, adding "We were privileged to partner with the Queensland Police Service and for this company to be out front, leading the way in providing smarter working dog training."

“Incorporating our training methods into any current training course would, in our opinion, evolve the course to the next level."

“The big picture is to give people within the working dog industry more choices and options when it comes to training working dogs. Incorporating our training methods into any current training course would, in our opinion, evolve the course to the next level. Our training methods have been developed over many years, on countless canines, and challenges your perspective on how you should communicate with working canines.”

K9 Solutions Australia specialises in providing canine tactical training services to military and law enforcement organisations. The working dog training company's courses are highly customisable and have been designed so they can be easily adapted to meet each organisation’s individual needs.

The two completed workshops have laid the foundations for more workshops to be conducted in the future. Ben added, “The workshops cover all of our courses' broad aspects, but allows for more specific, customised training........along with giving additional training on a consultancy basis where required, we think we have the best overall package that is available in this space. This new way of training helps customers use our training methods to take their business to the next level much quicker than at the moment.”

K9 Solutions Australia is a joint venture created, owned and operated by Ben Geurts and Jason Kelly. Together they are the most experienced and qualified military working dog training team in Australia.
