THE first K9 decoy course will be held
in Australia by US instructor Franco
Angelini for ADF and state police work-
ing dog teams from November 10-25 at
the Defence Police Training Centre in
Mr Angelini is a leading expert with
decoy work and has had significant experi-
ence as a dog handler in the US military,
Harrisburg Police Department and the US
Sgt Mark Nelson, a dog handler with
1 MP Bn, said it was important handlers
and trainers knew about the course and had
a chance to access the additional training.
"It's important that decoys have solid
experience and know their equipment
well," he said.
"This course will give people more
options as a handler or trainer to use and
tailor in their training."
A decoy for those unaware is quite sim-
ply that person you see running away in
a protective bite suit with a dog not far
behind them preparing for a take-down.
Sgt Nelson said decoys were better
known as an arm man, agitator or, in sport
circles, as a helper.
"Decoys are actually fellow dog han-
dlers or trainers who are highly adept in
wearing and correctly using the bite suit,"
"If decoys are not experienced and
don't know their job, accidents can and do
With up to 400 pounds of pressure
behind the bite of a trained dog, those who
perform the role of decoy know just how
painful it can be.
Until recently the only way to get any
instruction or experience in decoy tech-
niques was to join and attend various sport-
ing dog clubs or police dog competitions.
Sgt Nelson said Mr Angelini was at
the cutting edge of specific decoy training
for law enforcement applications and he
looked forward to the experience.
"This course is an excellent opportunity
and should not be missed."
Seats are still available for the course and can be

have also signed up to study this ses-
sion at ADFA.
ADFA Commandant Cdre Bruce
Kafer said the exchange programs for
junior officers were part of an exten-
sive international engagement for
both ADFA and its counterparts.
"The programs afford fantastic
opportunities for ADFA's midshipmen

national military forces, capabilities
and cultures, and to compare our acad-
emy with some of the premier military
colleges in the world," he said.
