Several months after returning from deployment to the World Trade Center attack, my K-9 partner Anna, became ill and was humanely euthenized. Looking at a minimum of two years for basic training, a puppy was not an option, as I did not want to lose my place on my team. Jerry Bradshaw / Tarheel Canine Training, Inc. was recommended by several top police canine handlers for his ability to chose the RIGHT dog , at the right price.
A dog training under FEMA specifications must be fearless, congenial, sound in body and mind, agile and focused. Deployment conditions are always stressful with canine teams working long hours. After testing approximately 70 dogs Jerry purchased K-9 Tango for me in the Netherlands.
One week after bringing Tango home to New Jersey, Tango passed his therapy dog certification with The Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs. Ten months after coming to live with me, Tango, passed his disaster dog screening for NJ Task Force-1. Tango is an all around dog, wilderness searches, urban disasters or putting smiles on the ill and elderly he is always willing. His greatest asset is his temperament!
I have recommended Tarheel Canine to all my friends and business associates. To date, every individual who has purchased a dog from Jerry has been more than satisfied.
