K9 Kyra shows off her skills
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – K9 Kyra is practicing her muzzle take down.
Why a muzzle?
It trains the dog not to look for sleeves, or bite suits. Sometimes dogs will bite the sleeve but not a real suspect.
Muzzle teaches the dog for real world combat by giving a realistic sight picture.
It also allows the dog to use her whole body in the fight, not just her teeth.
You will see Kyra and many more Police K9s showing off their skills at our Space Coast Police K9 Competition on October 17 at Space Coast Stadium so save the date and plan to join us!
