Dog Bite Safety Classes for Utility Personnel and Support Workers
Utility personnel often have very little choice as to whether they should enter private property to do their function, therefore, their job typically puts them in the middle of potentially hazardous dog situations.
The key in any difficult dog situation is to minimize the stress to the dog, and your staff. Less stress equates lower dog-bite incidents.
STOP Dog Bites
An effective dog bite safety program provides the education required to identify a dangerous situation and avoid any dangerous dog confrontation. If you are defending yourself from a dog assault, you are too late, and you will be bitten or hurt. Prevention through avoidance or defusing is the ONLY effective method for eliminating dog bites.
K9 University is the leading and fastest growing occupational safety educational institution focusing on dog bite prevention. We are the very best in this type of education for many reasons, one is the fact that we are also an advanced dog training facility, and have been in the dog and people training process since 1985. We focus on Occupational Dog Bite Prevention, training Executive Protection Dogs, Police Dogs, Drug & Explosive detection, and severe aggressive behaviors. Advanced dog disciplines are our specialty. We know exactly what triggers a dog into biting, and how to avoid a potential vicious assault; more importantly, how a person should behave to ensure that an assault never takes place.
A person can behave in such a way where they can trigger a dog into biting, or, they can totally defuse the same dog. Our curriculum teaches how to identify simple and very predictable dog behaviors that are present prior to a dog assault.
This is the only curriculum in the industry that teaches simple to read, predictable behavioral patterns that keep people from being assaulted. It works because it's SIMPLE!!!
There are two different ways to attend our classes; we offer a LIVE in-person class where our team teaches the class in person, either at the client's location, or our training facility located in Oklahoma City. This class includes hundreds of original picture and video illustrations, as well as a live Protection Dog demonstration designed to teach the staff how to deal with a truly dangerous dog. We also offer a series of educational videos that are also designed to demonstrate and teach the same material.
