Training the Police and Military Working Dog Helper
About Franco Angelini
Franco Angelini has conducted specialized training and consultation seminars in the areas of animal behavior and decoy /helper techniques, explosive-narcotic detection and all phases of utility training nationally and internationally since 1994. His emphasis has been training for K9 Units within Federal, State and Local Law Enforcement, along with all Specialized Military Units.
Franco is a presenter on multiple continents and is in high demand, presenting his techniques over 20 times a year so that host agencies can have a better understanding of animal behavior and canine communication to better train, develop and understand the critical and vital role of the helper in professional K9 service. Since 1989 Franco has assisted in the maintenance and certification of over 900 police K9 teams. He is a certifying agent and ‘Master Trainer’ for the North American Police Working Dog Association in the areas of Explosives, Narcotics and Utility and specializes in the instruction of animal behavior and decoy techniques.
In this comprehensive series of productions with Franco, we will introduce you to Franco’s detailed explanations of canine behavior; balanced drives, canine communication, body language and behavioral signals. We detail how the helper should utilize this information to improve every interaction with the professional K9.

On September 17-20, 2018 we travelled to Larimer County, CO to a Helper Seminar presented by Franco. The seminar spots filled incredibly quickly with around 10 K9 handlers auditing as well. The weather was cooperative and there were multiple agencies in attendance across the Front Range. A range of helper levels of experience were present including attendies of previous seminars. We filmed a tremendous amount of gorgeous HD and aerial drone footage.
In July of 2019 we met with Franco in Manitou Springs, CO to obtain interview footage for completion of title 1 and stock for titles 2 and 3. Once acquired, we finalized the first title, completed color correction, scoring, audio adjustment and released the first title with excellent feedback and reviews. Program 2 and 3 are well underway and we expect release of Part 2 very soon!
Larimer County, CO about 1.5 hours north of Denver and is about half way between Denver and Cheyenne, WY. Denver is the capital of Colorado and is rich in history and known for music, the arts, professional sports and outdoor pursuits. Canine Training Systems relocated from Denver in 2006 and the area is incredible! The weather was ideal and we're very pleased with the footage.
If you visit Colorado for a seminar or vacation, I recommend the Visit Colorado website!
From 1989 to 2001 Franco served as a patrol/explosive handler and as the Trainer for the Harrisburg Police Bureau. A unit made up of ten teams, each trained and served in a dual-purpose role.
