Editor's Note:

We're pleased to announce the addition of Girard “Jerry” Bradshaw, CEO and Training Director for Tarheel Canine Training, to our growing roster of writers. Jerry's articles will focus on K-9 issues, tactics, and training techniques. Jerry is consultant to various police agencies for K-9 training and deployment and is a co-founding director of the National Tactical Police Dog Association, which applies scenario-based principles found in the Protection Sports Association (which he also co-founded) to the certification of police dogs.

Check out his debut article, which was adapted from his upcoming book, Controlled Aggression in Theory & Practice.
