On February 9th a documentary entitled "What’s That About? Episode #3" premiered in Canada on the Canadian Discovery Channel. The show covers "Spy & Security Operations." In 2007 a crew from Pixcom Productions, Montreal Quebec Canada travelled to Sanford to film a portion of the show, featuring Personal Protection Training with Trainers and friends of Tarheel Canine Training, Inc.
I want to send a special thank you to Sean Siggins, K9 Officer, Southern York Regional Police Department, PA and Mr. Scott Battle, a PSA Certified Decoy for working the dogs in the scenarios that were filmed. Sean’s K9 "Jack" is featured at the end of our segment doing the longest run to a courage test in history!
Tarheel Canine’s Head Trainer, Janet Dooley (PSA 1 National Champion 2007) and her K9 Zuko were featured in an attempted kidnapping scenario. Hillary Daly and K9 Zhennon of TK9 Protection Sports and PSA runner up at the 2007 nationals in level 1, participated, along with one of our personal protection clients, Sally Howell with K9 Austin in a multiple attacker scenario showing off Austin’s redirect skills. Annie Schottmuller of Ponderosa Kennels in Maryland, and a former intern at TK9 participated with her K9 Zombie in a car jack scenario. Thanks to Sean’s girlfirend Tiffany Slonaker or being the getaway driver in the scenarios!
The show will be featured on National Geographic Channel in the Fall of 2008, so unfortunately we will have to wait a bit to see it in the USA. I would love to hear from our Canadian friends if they have a chance to see the show. The show also features other prominant security companies doing what they do. We are proud to have been chosen to be featured as a representative of the K9 industry, as we believe we put out top quality personal protection K9s not to mention our main mission of putting on the streets some of the finest law enforcement K9s in the USA.
Thanks again to everyone who made this documentary possible, and to the professionals at Pixcom, for doing a wonderful job putting us amateurs at ease in front of the cameras!
