German Shepherd Sting (12 months old) Article Search Exercises
Sting is a 12 month old KNPV line German Shepherd that we imported at ten weeks from one of the top KNPV German Shepherd Kennels in Holland. He is NOT currently for sale as he is being held back to become one of CCK9′s stud dogs. Sting is also the son of our very own KNPV
PH 1 & PH 2 German Shepherd, Gandhi.
Unlike the article search exercises within the KNPV program where they get the dog to find the articles then retrieve the article back to the handler. We train our dogs to find the article then indicate by lying down. To us this makes more sense.
Please note that NO FOOD, BALLS or TUGS were used in his training. Just a simple concept of communication and desire.

This is a video of Gandhi, one of our KNPV German Shepherd stud dogs taking a live bite.
We at Command Control K9 test all of our protection dogs before we purchase them. One would be very surprised by how many personal protection dogs there are that will not take a live bite. The majority of the dogs that we test are equipment orientated. This is not real. We all know that a criminal does not come into your home with a bite suite on. We at Command Control K9 have no interest in a dog that is fixated on the sleeve or bite suit. It may look good in the sporting world, but it has no purpose in the real world. To test for a live bite, one must be a very experienced decoy, also known as a helper. This is not something one would fool around with. I’ve seen too many people get seriously hurt with these exercises. The decoy/helper will take an old, thin phone book and wrap it around the forearm with duct tape, then take an old sweater, or jacket, and slip it over.
*Please note: Do not try this if you are not an experienced trainer, for this could have serious consequences.
This is a video of Ombra at 4 Month doing Man scent tracking on a long line. Ombra is a bi-color German Shepherd import from one of the top working line German Shepherd Kennels in Germany. Ombra is not for sale as she will be held back for our breeding program, once she completes our Executive Protection Dog program.
Please note: that this track was 400 yards, and was only the second time that Ombra and Julia had done a track of this kind on a long lead. Also please note that Food was never a reward, just a simple concept of communication and desire.
This is a video of Max, one of our KNPV German Shepherd stud dogs doing the gunshot exercise in the KNPV program. Max is a KNPV PH1 German Shepherd that we imported from Holland in 2006. Max is a very hard German Shepherd with very strong nerves but at the same time very social and great with children.
This is a video of Spanky doing bite work in the KNPV program. Spanky is our newest Belgian Malinois import from Holland.
A happy dog is a dog that is physically and mentally stimulated. Your Personal Protection Dog needs to work and be exercised on a daily basis. I don’t know how many times I seen or hear about someone with a good working dog that only takes them out of the run twice a week to their local club to stimulate the dog. To me this is definitely not enough. We work our Protection dogs seven day a week. In fact a relaxed day for us would be to walk our dogs five miles, three time a day. I personally walk my talk, I will literally walk five miles a day, and it is not an uncommon sight to see me walking with four or six dogs in the city.
One of the best ways to stimulate your protection dog is to have him follow you on a bike, you can cover a long distance at a very fast-paced, in a short amount of time. It is important however when riding with your protection dog that you have him on the curbside, for the safety of the dog. The following is a video that we shot in Holland with a experience KNPV handler and his Dutch Shepherd at a local KNPV club on a bike.
This video is a demonstration of the basic obedience exercises within the KNPV PH 1 Program. Note that handler must do a series of turns through pylons, first on lead, then off lead on examination day.
We filmed this video on one of our many trips to the Netherlands in one of the Local K.N.P.V Clubs. The handler in this video is an experienced KNPV handler, notice that when he is handling his Dutch Shepherd that he exercises the three main points of doing obedience, calm assertive energy, communication, and a loose lead.
