14 years ago today Deputy Brian Litz was shot and killed in the line of duty. I was the rookie handler on our K9 Unit. Brian had definitely taken me under his wing, like he did most. Earlier that morning Brian and I spoke on the phone, I had taken the day off to play in a charity golf tournament, and I invited him to come eat lunch with me at the bar-b-q provided. He agreed and we said we’d see each other later. Brian never showed. Shortly after starting, I received a phone call from a fellow handler. I can still hear his voice like it was yesterday. He said have you heard about Brian. I told him I had spoken to him earlier and he was suppose to meet me for lunch but didn’t show. He said he called for backup on the radio, about a man with a gun, but he’s not answering his radio. I started towards my car and he called back saying there’s a report that he’s been shot and he’s not responding on the radio. The events that followed were both heroic and devastating. I’ll never forget sitting in the ambulance looking at my friend, a man I looked up to, a father, husband, brother, son, and so much more, and thinking this can not be real. A mentally ill man took Brian’s life when Brian was just checking on him. Not a “dangerous” call. There have been a few times sense that day that I have been faced with a mentally ill man, some ended well and some not so well. But each one, in the moment, I wondered why Brian didn’t get the chance I was getting...to deal with, negotiate with, out smart, empathize with... the person who took his life. I can honestly say without thought that Brian’s death was, has been, and will undoubtedly always be, the worse thing I’ve had to ever process in the my life. It’s still the one thing that can bring me to a crazy uncontrolled emotional state in a fraction of a sec.... sometimes out of nowhere. Brian was an amazing man and law enforcement officer. He would be proud of the legacy he left behind. He would be proud of the way he has been honored by so many. Brian I miss you brother, so much. Thank you... for everything. Thank you for being a great role model, demonstrating what a true law enforcement officer was. I promise to always honor you.

My Man Monday! This is Zeus, one of the most serious working dogs I have ever had the privilege of working with and training. He is all business. But to a few people, who can see past what makes everybody else nervous, he is one of the coolest dogs with a great hidden personality. His handler requires nothing less than perfection from him, which is exactly the structure a dog like this needs. Pound for pound, he has the hardest bite pressure of any dog I’ve ever fought. His nose is like a workhorse and comes second only to his desire to work. He is a rarity anymore. I get to hang out with him when his handler is out of town and I always thoroughly enjoy it. #workingdog #thisguydontplayaround #allbusiness #heartofalion #beastmode #workingdogisanunderstatement #zeus #manhunter #workingdogsofig #gsd #germanshepherd #solidmuscle #mymanmonday #k9 #k9unit #policek9 #k9cops #mcsok9

One of my main goals when training my dog, or any of the other teams in our unit, is to train harder than the next guy, to prepare more than the bad guy prepares, to make it as real as possible, to think outside the box so the dogs or handlers are never surprised in the real world. We train to win the fight every time. We train to failure so we can’t fail in the real world. One thing is for sure, you can’t do that without a real decoy. @carlosramirezk9 is one of the best! He’s a great friend and a great training partner. We challenge each other every chance we get. We have been doing this a long time but both clearly understand that if you ever think you’re done learning, it’s time for you to hang up your lead and suit. Train hard. Like you mean it. Go follow Carlos for some incredible pics, videos, and training tips.  #Repost @carlosramirezk9 with @get_repost

There’s a reason we put dogs in uncomfortable positions when doing bitework. To some, it might look like we’re just flipping dogs upside down without purpose, but there’s a reason behind it.  We, as decoys, are tasked with showing K9 teams the worst case scenario. We don’t prepare for the 99% of people that are afraid of the dog. We prepare for the 1% who wants to fight against them. We have to show them what evil looks like, but also how to beat it! @policefitnessnutrition  I think this counts as my workout for today. 60# Dog + 40# suit!—————————————————

At the conclusion of a long successful track of a felony domestic violence suspect, we found ourselves negotiating with an armed suspect that went on for 45 minutes. All the while Drago and I found ourselves in a bad spot, while dealing with the suspect we quickly realized we had also located a large wasps nest in the ground and they were not happy with us. We were stuck, forcing us to deal with the stings. So we just left the emergency vet getting some shots to reduce the swelling and counteract the venom. #k9problems #manhunters #themwaspswerenotplaying #workingdog #tracking #findtheman #workingdogsofig #floridak9handlerswillunderstand #waspsdontcareaboutyourcurrentsituation #gsd #gsdsofinstagram #drago #mcsok9 #policek9 #workingdogmagazine #k9cops #germanshepherd

When you train a dog to process threats, to genuinely fight the threat, instead of a routine revolved around and reliant on equipment, you build a working dog that will not be distracted by anything. Which for a handler in a dark place in the middle of the night facing a real threat is invaluable.  I have all the confidence in the world in the team I’ve built with Drago. Special thanks to @carlosramirezk9 for being an exceptional training partner and decoy #k9training #traintofight #traintowin #everytime #workingdogsofinstagram #workingdog #k9cops #manwork #workingdogmagazine #policek9 #sheriffk9 #buildingmyteam #buildingthebond #trainthroughthedistractions #gsd @workingdogsofig @workingdogmagazine @policek9magazine @policek9association @k9_lives_matter @k9copmagazine @k9s4cops @copdogs @germanshepherddogcommunity @working_dog_community @kolossalk9 @k9magazineboss @gotodogs

While training yesterday Drago had this little handsome fella come hang out with him and the other big boys! @lip_the_mal is a gorgeous Malinois puppy who wants so badly to train like the big boys. Unfortunately teething stood in his way of bite work progress last night. But it didn’t keep him from looking sharp in his obedience training. #malinois #gsd #workingdogs #k9training #k9unit #allwedoiswin #teachingthelittleguy #malinoispuppy #bicolorgsd
