DECOYS AND AGGRESSION: A POLICE K9 TRAINING MANUAL
Stephen Mackenzie
Being a good decoy for police dogs involves more than putting on a sleeve or bite suit and taking bites. This book explains step by step how to understand the canine paralanguage and how to use your own body to communicate with the dog. It then explains the different types of natural dog aggression and how to use its own language to trigger the useful types without being abusive to the dog. Also describes drills designed to develop skill in the decoy. Some are designed to be conducted with dogs until the human demonstrates enough body control to work with a live animal without injuring the dog or himself. Essential reading for all decoys, instructors and students alike, as well as for K9 personnel, handlers, and trainers. Published by Temeron, 1996, 88 pages

DOG TAGS OF COURAGE: THE TURMOIL OF WAR AND THE REWARDS OF COMPANIONSHIP
John C. Burnam, MSG (USA ret.); 2000; hardcover; 300 pages
The story of 4,000 forgotten war heroes, the scout dogs in the Vietnam War, whose heroism saved thousands of lives. The turmoil of war and the rewards of companionship. This is a first-hand account of these German Shepherds and their handlers who loved them, cared for them, and literally carried their food and water into battle. The scout dogs located injured GI's, searched out Viet Cong weapons caches and booby traps, thwarted enemy attacks and ambushes, and between missions were loving, playful friends who shared the lives of their people. These dogs were classified as "equipment" and were eventually abandoned at the end of the war, their contributions honored only by the people whose lives they protected.
