Joe Talkington
North Vernon, Indiana 47265

I am Joe Talkington currently The Town Marshal of Westport Police Department in Indiana. I am currently a K9 Handler as well.

 Living a lifelong dream to work with dogs and the Community I have continued my own education through various K9 training courses under different Master Trainers to visualize the differences between the old detection way of training and the latest way of training. “It all works” Take the good, from both ways of training and along with the right K9 and you will succeed. My theory is you have to have 100% trust in your K9 partner if you get to that point you will be 100% successful. I believe in these steps. Find the hunt for the prey in a K9. Have a Master Trainer or a Certified Agent do required testing. Train in different environments. Focus to read your K9. Keep good training records.  Once you feel you and your partner are ready, see your local Certifying Agent for Certification requirements.
