NEW NAPWDA Aggression Control Requirements With Video, by Matthew Devaney

New NAPWDA Aggression Control Requirements With Video

by Matthew Devaney

Last year, I prosed a change to the existing certification rules for Aggression Control. I made this proposal in response to several recent court rulings where a canine handler’s qualified immunity was denied for allowing canines to continue to engage and bite subjects that were only displaying “passive resistance”. In the cases Copper v. Brown out of the Fifth Circuit and Becker v. Elfreich out of the Seventh Circuit, both appeals courts affirmed the denial of qualified immunity by District Courts for the handlers allowing canines to continue to bite surrendering subjects.
