He has also trained and titled competitive obedience and protection dogs worked with countless family dogs with clients and has shown dogs in AKC, IPO, Mondio Ring - covering obedience, protection, conformation and more.
The Belgian Malinois in John Wick Part 3 Parabellum were among some of the most awesome dogs I've ever seen in a movie. The training, the obedience and the bite work was amazing. So where did these dogs come from? I found out in this conversation with Kenny Licklider of Vohne Liche Kennels. We sat down to a few chats and this one gives you an idea. We also discussed the Maliherd (Belgian Malinois x German Shepherd that he sold to the movie DOG with Channing Tatum. This podcast has three parts. 1. the John Wick Parabellum Belgian Malinois 2. the dog(s) from the movie Dog with Channing Tatum 3. some behind the scenes stuff from Ken's TV series Alpha Dogs! Ken is known best for his work with the US Military war dogs, providing dogs for the most elite US forces. We touch on some of that in this chat as well, but much more of that to come in the Interview Podcast. There's a lot to love in this podcast including the behind the scenes stuff about these dogs, where they came from, who they were, what he thought of the training and Kenny's thoughts on Halle Berry as a dog handler. We also touch on Ken's show that ran on Nat Geo Wild "ALPHA DOGS." This show featured the work of Vohne Liche Kennels with police and military units and was a huge hit.

California Assembly Bill AB 742 would try to eradicate the use of police dogs, and that is a big problem for safety in our cities. Everyone can agree that crime is out of control in many cities and states - including here in California. I got the unique opportunity to interview California Senator Kelly Seyarto who has been quite vocal in his support of police and his opposition of this bill. Our chat will help you better understand how the laws are proposed and ultimately passed. Even if you're not in California, this is a great watch because these radical policies may come to your city one day. Here are the links to find what committee hearings are scheduled: Senate: https://www.senate.ca.gov/calendar Assembly: https://www.assembly.ca.gov/schedules-publications/todays-events There, you can view each committee and the floor agendas to see bills that will be heard. You can watch a video, listen in, and find call-in instructions as well. Make your voice heard wherever you live. #policedogs #california #doglover
This discussion with Jamie Penrith goes deep into the topic of using aversive tools in order to save not only dogs' lives, but also the lives of other animals such as sheep, cattle and more. Are these tools really aversive? Is aversive training or training that causes discomfort to a dog to accomplish something important cruel? We dive deep into this conversations, take on science based lies and mis-information and so much more. The use of e-collars as a viable methodology of training is currently under great attack by a very small but vocal group - the truth of using electronic training collars is one f many key points in this discussion. Please listen and share! This is an awesome chat with a dog trainer from across the pond (in England). A very knowledgeable, talented and witty man that I respect and admire. He has a great organization that I support and hope you will too: https://JoinArdo.com ARDO's aim is educating the public and keeping dogs safe. A most worthwhile cause.

Mike Reaver of Adlerhorst K9 has been involved in police dogs for most of his life. The son of Dave Reaver, founder of Adlerhorst K9 and the father of "police dogs." Mike and I finally got a chance to sit down and talk about police dogs, buying, training and selling them and most importantly the lives they save. Adlerhorst has placed thousands of police dogs, military k9 and personal protection dogs over the last 50+ years. We discuss the critical topic of CA Assembly Bill AB 742 - the bill that aims at eliminating police dogs as we know them. This is dangerous for police officers and deadly for citizens that are protected by these dogs every single day. This chat is one of the longest podcasts I've done and I think you'll agree that it could have gone on for a lot longer. Mike is a man of great character, a guy who loves dogs and speaks from his heart and soul.

California Assembly Bill CA AB740 is being presented by California Assemblyman Corey Jackson. This bill aims at eliminating the use of police canines (k9s) in many situations including apprehending potentially dangerous suspects. He claims the bill will help right the wrongs of the past - a "carryover from a dark past." He uses inciteful language such as: "The use of police canines has inflicted brutal violence and lifelong trauma on Black Americans and communities of color," and more. This type of language will create knee-jerk reactions among policymakers and place many people, especially those in under-served communities in great danger. We've seen the problems things like defunding the police does to communities and I hope this video will open people's eyes to the true benefit of police canines. Michael Goosby is a decorated LAPD police officer, he served as chief K9 trainer for the LAPD and has been a police officer for over 30 years! I can't imagine a person better qualified to talk on this topic than him. This chat will give you great insight from a man of the highest character, a police k9 expert, and a man of color who cares about people. I hope that Assemblyman Jackson will watch this video and rethink his position or at least sit down with someone like Michael to educate himself on this topic. I'm assuming he didn't before proposing / writing this bill. Please contact Assemblyman Jackson here to voice your concern: 1021 O Street, Suite 6120, P.O.

Talking about some of the strongest and toughest dogs in the world, these dogs are man stoppers. Dogs that are bred tough, train tough and help police and military do their jobs. Who trains these dogs? What does it take to be one of these elite dogs? I s it down for another great conversation with Steve "Zane" Stoops and talk about it. From the top personal protection dogs to the toughest most elite military dogs, Stoops' experience is unmatched. We talk about how sport training like Schutzhund / IPO / IGP / Ring Sport / KNPV and more affect how these dogs are raised and turn out. The sociability factor in these dogs and the safety vs. liability of sport dogs in general. This is a great chat for anyone who loves working dogs, who works with these dogs and anyone who wants to learn more.

What is a service dog and why are there so many people faking it? What can be done about it? There's nothing good about fake service dogs and I get to the bottom of it in this podcast with two experts from IACP. Michele Khol and Kristi Smith are service dog trainers and representatives from the IACP they were really straight forward with their opinions on what a REAL SERVICE DOG is and the issues that plague us. Both have trained many service dogs and are working with IACP, International Association of Canine Professionals to create standards in training and more.

When it comes to the most dangerous dogs on earth there's one name that comes to my mind, and that is my friend Kyle Schwab. He has been working with and rescuing Cane Corso, Neopolitan Mastiffs, Dogo Argentino, Presa Canarios and many more for a very long time. In this chat we discuss the issues with these dogs including poor ownership, the dangers involved in owning and working with them and a host of other VERY interesting topics. Kyle and I have been friends for a long time, so this is a great chat between two friend that I think you're gonna LOVE.

Nino and I met at the IACP Conference in Sept 2022. We had several really great conversations and I thought sharing these with you would open your eyes about the similarities that dog trainers share and the passion that drives us. So much of what you see on the Social media is trainers critiquing each other and tearing other trainers down. Nothing could be further from the truth when you get two passionate, professional dog trainers / dog lovers together. This conversation is a short glimpse into the chats we shared in Florida and I think it will be a breath of fresh air to all the crap you are so used to seeing online. In this chat we talk about so many important topics, but the theme that runs throughout is "where is dog training and where is it heading?" We talk about the mindset, the personalities of dogs as well as dog trainers and the use of rewards and aversive in training. What has been the fallout thought the countries that ban the use of balanced training tools is also a huge topic we address about 1/2 way though the video. Thanks Nino for a great chat, I look forward to the next one.

If you want to know about German Shepherds, you want to talk to an expert. In Germany this is called a Körmeister. This person is an authority on breeding.

Shannon Krieger is an American Hero. From his work in the US Military SOCOMM to his current passion, working with HSI catching child predators he never ceases to amaze me. If you missed Episode 99 talking about Shannon's work starting the CAD (combat assault dog) program, be sure to watch it. In this episode we talk about where Shannon's work has taken him and that is investigating child predators online. The future of his work is something we hint at in this interview. We talk about the "Digi Dogs" concept and I think that is something that is really exciting. For more info on Shannon, check these links: ATAK9: https://atak9.com https://herocorps.com Check my online dog training here: https://robertcabral.com My new 25 complete online dog training course: http://shelterdogtraining.com My logo gear: https://robertcabral.com/shop
In this episode I take a look back at the first 99 podcasts I've done, the people I've talked to, met and learned from. My new friends, the people that changed the way I see things and the hard conversations that I've had... often times with myself. I think you'll enjoy this short retrospect whether you've listened to all of my podcasts or none. Enjoy and here's to the next 100!
Shannon Krieger has done it all. He is the guy that legends are made of and movies are about. He's fought in war, been part of the upper echelon of the US Military. He was one of the 3 people who started the use of assault dogs in the military. He survived a helicopter crash and there's more. My chat with Shannon was epic. The stories he shares are breathtaking, funny, motivational and they will make you feel like you were actually there with him. Whether missions in the Middle East during the most turbulent times or training dogs to do amazing things here in the US, you won't find more amazing stories or a better conversation. Thanks to Zane Stoops for introducing us. For more information on Shannon's work: ATAK9: https://atak9.com https://herocorps.com
Peter Scherk is an international renown IPO / IGP / Schutzhund competitor, trainer and WORLD CHAMPION 3 X, an unheard of feat. In this podcast I sit down with Peter & Connie Scherk and talk about their training, competitions, their outlook and training philosophy and how they have become so successful with the Belgian Malinois. This is one of the best podcasts for anyone who is interested in learning about IGP, training malinois, competing and understanding what it takes to be a wold champion. From their small, humble yet incredibly successful Team Heuwinkl, we delve into his training philosophy which he teaches in his new Book Successful Together / Gemeinsam Erfolgreich, a book I highly recommend. Check out this interview, then visit Peter and Connie at their site: https://cpscherk.de YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCooSWHqB3luvIbrIYmPUmKg Instagram: @cp_scherk Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ConniePeterScherk I think you will love this interview. Sorry the audio is a little spotty in places, but the value of the content is immense! This is what happens when you deal with international conversations!
The Belgian Malinois is becoming every more popular and with that popularity comes problems. People are breeding malinois in their backyards and selling them quick and cheap. This will be a disaster for people and for the breed. I decided to sit down with a very knowledgeable breeder and good friend of mine Tasha Mesina, who has been breeding Malinois for may years. With countless successful litters, sport dogs as well as herding and show dogs, Tasha loves and appreciates the breed and knows her stuff. This podcast will enlighten you to this wonderful breed, it will educate you on the basic genetics of the breed and hopefully help you make a good decision if you're looking to get a Malinois.

This is an awesome episode that addresses the genetics of dogs, particularly the German Shepherd. Avi and I review interviews we received from these experts: Pierre Wahlström Steve Stoops Johannes Grewe I think you'll gain tremendous insight from each of these interviews and as always, its a great discussion and fun time with Avi Cohen on the show!
