K9 Handler / Paramedic + Tactical (2209-NV-Open)

September 20, 2022 @ 8:00 am - September 22, 2022 @ 5:00 pm PDT


1K9 Handlers, Are You…

  • Wanting to provide the best emergency field care for your partner?
  • Concerned that your medical training doesn’t address your real-world realities?
  • Looking for strategies on how to better support your K9’s performance and safety at home and at work?


1EMS/TEMS Providers, Are You…

  • Tasked with supporting K9s, but unsure how to convert your skills?
  • Looking for ways to increase your scope of practice with advanced techniques and a whole new species?
  • Concerned that your veterinary training is clinic-based, and doesn’t address the realities of your prehospital/tactical environments?
  • In need of a few more CE credits for that upcoming renewal?

The program includes handling K9 emergencies in both conventional and tactical environments, so you’ll be prepared to respond wherever and whenever you need to. Topics range from safe K9 handling and comprehensive assessments to treating the most common emergencies such as heat stroke and bloat/GDV, as well as tactical injuries such as gunshot wounds. Advanced Paramedicine skills include IO fluid admin and surgical airways.

Skill Stations 


Skill stations  focus on a particular field skill and ensure that each student has accurate muscle memory to ensure skillful delivery long after the class is complete. Primary interventions are repeated until students can do them, literally, blindfolded.

Each station is designed to build on existing knowledge and translation of human medical skills to the canine anatomy. Assessment skills are on live dogs and go beyond basic vitals and teach students how to conduct ongoing observations and trending through typical work cycles to identify and prevent injuries and illness early in development. Handling includes basic carries and constraints and can include advanced handling such as harness lifts and extractions.


1Solo and Team Scenarios then put these skillsets into the likely field environment and require the student to put together an entire treatment sequence, problem solving the situation as they go. Scenarios are based on the skillset, equipment and mission profile of each team. For example GSWs, IEDs or collapsed building compression injuries may be included depending on the mission profile.

+ Tactical

1This add-on curriculum component takes the skills learned in the above levels and puts them into the Tactical context following MMMARCHHH principles. K9 MEDIC® has been teaching this K9 TEMS component for more than a decade and stays current with the recent K9-TECC guidelines, as well as Canine-TCCC guidelines.


Hybrid Program for Different Scopes of Practice

We’ve been working with handlers and medics for 15yrs  and, with extensive experience and the review of many different integration methods, have created ways to make a mixed program level course very successful. When students register we will gather exist levels of human/veterinary medical skills.  Students with similar skills levels are placed together in the same groups for skills rotations.  During scenarios the different groups are distributed so that Handlers and Medics work side-by-side, just like the real world.

High Def / Intensive Program Format

1This format of training features the ultra realistic training for maximum learning, outcomes and and confidence.  This includes ethically sourced canine cadaver lab stations where we recreate conditions such as Bloat/GDV and Tension Pneumothorax. We also include advanced K9 mannikans and environmental simulations.
