But at least three other agency hits have been removed or demoted since the election, including the chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

"Avoid kids and crowds businesses and contractors seem see customers disappear and parents scramble to create contingency plans has widespread school closures begin to take effect here in the bay area enjoying the first is Matthew Duffy he's superintendent of west Contra Costa unified good morning Matthew Duffy morning thanks for having me thanks for being here I I understand the west Contra Costa has decided to close for how long is this closure we are closing for three weeks which includes two weeks of normal school and we have a week of spring break vacation in there and this will affect how many students we have about thirty thousand students in our district what made you decide it was time to close schools we thought ultimately this would be the best decision to keep students and families safe they're just became too many uncertainties about the spread of the disease inability to track down second third fourth hand sources and we think based on all of the recommendations around social distancing this will help arrest the spread of the disease certainly in the bay area and I understand the district has been making efforts to set up students for online learning is that in place for all the students who needed and and have teachers been trained for this transition Iraq so today we are having a minimum day at our schools so we're ending at noon and for the rest of the afternoon will be training our teachers many of whom are very very familiar with online learning and we will be rolling it out on Monday for the next two weeks for our students so we don't expect it to be perfect in any way but it's certainly our time to keep some continuum of learning going with our teachers and our students what about continuing nutrition I understand west Contra Costa has more than seventy percent of its students on free and reduced lunch what's the plan for meals yeah this is a really difficult one for us so we are going to have a set of schools around our district and in some of our most needy areas open where students families can come and pick up meals will do that between eleven and one so it'll be sort of a a late breakfast lunch meal pick up it's something similar we've done over the summer so families or students who qualify for free or reduced lunch can come and pick up and everyone everyone excuse me under eighteen will be able to grab a lunch well Matthew Duffy we really appreciate your time with us morning thank you so much you're welcome thank you on the line with us now is brand Stevens he superintended for Berkeley unified school district good morning Brent Stevens a good morning thank you for having me thank you for being on so why did you decide to close Berkeley unified I mean I understand opens not closing in your both guided by the Alameda county health department on these decisions I assume yes this is true yeah we've been in close consultation with county and city health officials we've been paying attention to the guidance as it evolves over time just earlier in the week we were instructed to begin limiting all of our large gatherings and we found on Wednesdays we began to follow those guidelines that community's response became increasingly more intense men particularly around the care for high risk individuals I think lots of people have been swayed by recent literature about the effectiveness of school closing is one strategy to mitigate against the spread of corona virus we ultimately decided that we just wanted to be a good partner to public health officials and the health care system as we tried to slow the spread of covert nineteen so it was really that stance of wanting to be a good partner not only to families and kids but to the entire community and region that led us to decide to close so interestingly you you're closing Berkeley high school today and the rest of the schools beginning Monday Y. Berkeley high school today yeah there were two factors in that particular decision so one had to do with the size of Berkeley high school relative to other schools here in town Berkeley high schools over three thousand students simply much more difficult to maintain any form of social distancing at that location and then we realized that we wanted to give families at least one day heads up if they have younger children in our our pre K. through eight schools and we felt that high school students were more likely to be able to cope with is sort of a more immediate closure of their classes then R. R. K. eight families we gave one day of lead time and then all district probe rounds including are dealt school will be closed on Monday are you hearing concerns from any of the students or parents about losing three weeks of instructional time especially as I know AB tests will come in a month or two sure so far in the early stages of the closure of the responses that we've been receiving this is from students parents and community members is thanks I think most people are relieved to know that Berkeley is taking this step we have though been really wrestling with the dilemma is that this poses for student learning so much like what country because there were in the process right now of working with our educators to design home learning resources that won't possibly replace in class instruction but that will give students activities to follow many of which will be aligned to grade level standards even course content but it simply won't be the same as students coming into school sure and how quickly can that be rolled out well we hope to have our first batch of resources available on Monday and then we'll have a small team working through the closure to refresh those resources as we go on so our best thinking right now is that will to use our own website to service the repository of many of these resources and that'll provide links into a variety of resources again some aligned to course content others just more generalized grade level learning activities kids with special needs are the services to them I mean are there was going to be suspended well so I I think an important thing to note here is that school is closed so in fact our instructional program is canceled during this period and so we are not making at we are not representing to the community that class content is being delivered by teachers during this two week period we simply don't have a solution to the many range of accommodations that we need to provide in the classroom they're simply not a way to replicate those so we've decided to suspend all instructional programs were being very clear with our community that school is closed as we simply can't offer the range of accommodations that are required under federal law under normal circumstances are you considering the possibility that this closure could last longer than three weeks we have of course none of us has a crystal ball I certainly wish I knew what the conditions would be like if we come back on April six what we're communicating to the Berkeley community is that we'll do our best to work with health officials to assess conditions at that point but I like many others suspect that this will roll out over the course of the month and we simply don't know what the conditions will be like in the bay area three weeks from now well Brent Stephens superintendent of Berkeley unified school district we really appreciate you coming on form today thank you so much for having me thank you and let me tell our listeners who else is with us we have Kleinenberg he's Helen culture professor of social science and director of the institute for public knowledge at New York University thanks for joining us Kleinenberg that's my pleasure he's also author of palaces for the people how social infrastructure can help fight inequality polarization and the decline of civic life also with this is Alyssa apple she is professor and vice chair of the department of psychiatry at UCSF she's director of UCSF aging metabolism and emotion center good morning to you unless apple good morning and also with us is Judy Lynn she is an economy reporter for calmatters hi Judy Lynn hello thanks for having me thanks for being on and and you're on in part because you have talked with a lot of parents who just dealt with the elk Grove school district closure can you tell us what parents told you that they've gone through as a result yeah well I should first say you know with fourteen million households in California every day is already a coordinated dance with children and so every family is different but there's one common denominator there all take you making sacrifices and and leaning on each other it takes a village the appearance I spoke to in elk Grove they they they shut down this week after one student and now and then elementary school tested positive and it's it's sprung on them a lot of them were surprised us some words left scrambling others relied on grandma and and and then others were making the best of it taking their kids to the playground wow and so did you hear high levels of stress or anxiety or due to him here more gratitude in elk Grove it was a little bit of inconvenience the message I got from the folks I happen to run into was that this wasn't you know that was a necessary precaution but it it but having to make sure somebody's home and and caring for the kids it it it's it threw them off balance and I was also struck by one of the people that you quoted saying that not only are they losing their child care right or or they have to try to figure out and child care plan as a result of school closures but that the person they relied on was a grandparent of their children and then on top of that the parent was saying that they were devastated to lose close contact with with her mother because she was a very important social contact for her as well hold yes yes I am I think the person you're talking I was a mother in a Los Angeles and but yes is that we're seeing families up and down the state scrambling some grandparents are self isolating some grandparents some mothers are we spoke to one mother who is in Los Angeles who sending her children a three year old and a six year old up to grandma's house in Siskiyou county just because it's more of a role and they are going to ride it out so there is a real big spectrum and helping how families are reacting well to delay and we really appreciate your reporting and thanks so much for coming on to share with us thank you Judy Lana Connie reporter for calmatters we're also joined by Carla curry see Notre Dame I think your last name correctly Carla hi Carl are you there well I well maybe she will join us in just a moment and Carl are you with us I am with many perfectly okay great and death current doctor Carla Friesen noted was associate chief for geriatrics and clinical programs at UCSF thanks for being with us as well yeah absolutely and so I want to start with you Alyssa apple though you are professor vice chair of the department of psychiatry UCSF because you've written pretty extensively on anxiety and also anxiety in response to this pandemic and one of the things that I liked about what you started off with is that you're reminding us that anxiety is a useful response and we shouldn't be so hard on ourselves or being anxious right absolutely I think that when we are faced with the situation with high levels of uncertainty and potentially serious risk this is just like the alternate scenario or feeding ground for anxiety as well as friends I need to turn toward panic so if we're not feeling at least some anxiety we're not really facing reality and just really looking at the situation right now thank god IT is our friend it is housing good behavior that is going to help us mitigate risk and so it's really just a matter of being okay with this kind of appropriate anxiety managing it well and not letting it turn into a panic right so anxiety is our friend but panic is not can you talk about how to deal with a panic state because clearly we've heard about panic buying we've heard about major stressors and so in in people reacting in in the highly emotional ways these days we've heard about horrible xenophobia I mean tell us how we can manage anxiety so it doesn't come panic right so part of it is what where is our mind going with our predictions it's very important that we just stick with the facts and with reliable sources I forwarded a terrible institutionalized you know let's say article on predictions to people and realize I'm just increasing other people's panic their their predictions of catastrophic thing happening whereas if we can stay toward just feeling anxious that we are all for the first time for all of us alive today living through a pandemic this is the time for being part of the solution for being optimistic because we actually can work together to get through this while entering the ID direct drive has to have you due to social.

"That's where he was at. And and he would never leave the property never even thought about it was just interesting because he didn't spend his life at a house. But you would have thought he did he made himself at home very quickly and UPS man could come it. Didn't matter just dog associated people look at me like that dog was no military dog. No trust me. Trust me. He he has to be the social to do his job. But you don't wanna make you mad. Yeah. Yeah. So we we try to give them the best. That's the kind of a broad answer. But it's the truth. We want them to work for as long as they can as long as they're healthy and happy and and like doing what they're doing. But we're not gonna push him too far. Well, and how do you work with handlers who maybe haven't had any experience? How do you start working with them to get them trained to work with these things really highly qualified canines? So that's actually the hard part. You know, I'm gonna tell you know, the dogs. It's pretty easy for us. But you know, humans were a lot more complex and wherever our ins and outs. But overall, I would say that we're dealing with top notch people that are very athletic. They're very quick to learn things. Most of them that come through the program have a passion for dogs to start with and probably have had dogs throughout their life that type of thing, but we have a program, but a school that we put them through like, you would any other handlers course, it's just designed obviously a little a little different work. But the handlers come in. And they get to spend a little bonding time with the dogs. And then it's a slow start. You know, we're gonna crawl before we run type of thing. But when we have a complete school that they go through how long is that school for them can it around three months. I think. Okay. So. Yeah, that's a good length of time. But they're getting when I say that it's not like they're gonna so for example in the police world oftentimes a police officer might only get five or six. Weeks of training, sometimes eight and then he's out the next week going to work. We have our school is just really getting our handlers warmed up. So we have a dog that we spend some time with just to kind of give you the big picture. We we get a dog trained and ready. We get a course go, and of course, goes for three months, and then after that there's still a good six months or more training before they actually go out and do real work. So they have a lot of training before they they take off and go to work with the dog. Oh, that's great for very in tuned with the dogs by the time. They they go to work. Yeah. That's a good length of time for them to really bond and really build their confidence with their skills you and the dog. Yes. Because that's what's so important too. Is having that trust relationship with the dog will tell us about the bug? I mean, this is pretty exciting that Matthew Duffy has written this amazing book about you. How did that happen? How did you? Let him talk you into that. Jeff. Well, it's was so a lot of people had asked about it because of the type of work I do about doing books and stories and TV shows and other things, and you know, because of the work, I do also is the reason why I told most of them know, Mr. Duffy had wrote some books before on about training dogs. And it's what he's done for. I think thirty forty years of his life. That's always done is trained dogs. And he also has always since I met him had a passion for for writing. So basically approached me with it. And and he'd knew other people had had approach me. And we talked it out that, you know, since he was like a brother to me, I knew I could trust him not to put anything in the book that I wouldn't want in there. And when we realized that it didn't have to be all about just the military work. It could be things about like lady, for example, or other work that I've done with dogs. So we started off the project, and it it took. I think a few years longer than we expected. But we we did it in a manner that made. Seem to make everybody happy the oddest part about the book was for me is my job was just to edit and some of the times, I would read things and think man, what is wrong with that guy. Jeffrey, you really that? Dumb. Did you read it again? Like, I guess you did so. Well, the book is so great. I mean, it has so many stories and information in it. I mean, it really is an amazing story and he did such a great job. I mean, captivated me from the very minute that I started reading it. So it's it's really wonderful in. It is a great overview and an example of the the incredible work that these dogs and their handlers are doing and that you've done Jeff to to make this program so successful. Well, thank you. We it's it's for me. It's a it's a blessing for me. It's not, you know, I don't obviously, it's work. But I don't go to a job like normal people, and I'm very lucky in that manner. You know, most of my life. I'm getting to do something with an animal. So we get to pay our bills that way also. So it's a win for us. Right. Is just a bonus. Yeah. Duffy did such a good job with the book. I mean, he's a he's really good with dogs. But he might even just be a better writer, and I have a feeling this is probably not as last Franklin book. So we'll see what happens with that. That's awesome. Well, yeah. I mean, there was so much to tell and I'd I'd love the photos in it to you guys at a lot of great images in it. So that you really got to see you ain't got the feel like you had that insight into what was going on. And felt like you were there. And that was one of the things we really liked about. It is that even though the quality wasn't there. Those pictures weren't setup as props there. Real life things that happened along the way and what I found out. Unfortunately, I'm I'm not when I I do a lot of traveling. But I I apparently I'm not a great picture taker forest quality or quantity, but I found out that the hard way and it was twenty years too late. So I said, hey, I don't know what you want me to do about it now. But we'll make it the best it could. But it seemed like even with what you said a lot of people said, well, they were probably better because you didn't know they were going to end up in a book. Yeah. Yeah. No. I mean it really demonstrates. Yeah. Yeah. Really does. It tells the story too. I mean as those images are are pretty intense. Yeah. But they're great. So in thicket about all this in the book, you mentioned lady, but what was tell us one of your favorite things about the book one of the stories about the dogs in the book. So lady is the tough story. Just because it is it's it's a good. It's a good story. But it's it's a tough one. I think my best memory of me and a dog and a really crappy situation. Was the one where I was stuck in a jungle, and I got to rely on a dog to help me out through a pretty bad time. And you know, again, like a lot of the dog work. Sometimes it's a union Yang because. Yeah, he helped me in a really really awful spot. But at some point in time I had to leave him where he was at because he wasn't mine anymore. So that's the that's one of the things to sort after get used to in this line of workers. I work with a lotta of nice animals and get to train a lot of nice people. But most of them don't stick around. Yeah. So, you know, a lot of people think that I've had people. Well, I guess you just don't get attached to learn how to let go because you certainly couldn't do what I've done with dogs and not be attached to them. You just have to figure out a way to say. Well, I did all I can do here kid. It's your job to take it from here and learn how to do that as tough. That's a really good as Gilda you've learned. Yeah. This stuff. I just went to Paraguay this year an interesting, it's sort of sad. But I'll tell it because it's the truth. I went there, and I saw some dogs that I put there in two thousand seven so you do the math on that that was eleven years, and I saw a group of dogs and most of them were still around and most of them are still working 'cause they don't they work them a bit longer than we do, obviously. But they're just doing a different job too. So it's not so bad. But it was interesting for me because I I don't usually put too much thought into this stuff because it can't because you should be emotional mess all the time. So I was leaving. And I went to Kim. And I looked at these three dogs that were in there. I'll probably I'll never in my life. Forget about it. I looked right. Well, you're at least twelve years old, and I'm probably not going to be back for a few years. So I guess this is goodbye. You know? So it was one of the things where it also let me know how long I've been doing the job the longer you do any one skill set, especially with with dogs the more of them that are going to pass with time. Yeah. Yeah. It's just. Yeah. It's just nature. But yeah, I know that's when you talk about a six year work life. That's not very long. No, wink of an eye. Yeah. It goes way too fast. Yes. It does. Yeah. I know. That's what I'm on my fourth assistance dog. And so I yeah. So totally appreciate that that that's that's the bummer part when with eight. Throughout the book. There's there's only that's just a drop in the bucket of the positive experiences. I've had though there's been many dogs in my life that have done so much good work that you know. It's it's worth the the sad part of it absolutely will. And I'm just so amazed by all the skills, but you've train these dogs to do these highly highly intense and sensitive situations. I mean, bien and helicopters and all the different types of things that that they have to do is just so impressive in the equipment that they have to wear is there one memory that sticks out that you can share with us. Yeah. So you were talking about I'll tell you a funny when I like to share there was a dog, and how that we were in a helicopter, and we were getting close to where we need to be in this helicopter crew person looked over at me and goes, hey, what do you think about jumping avenue helicopter said, sir? I don't know. I've never asked him. I'm worried about myself. So so we, you know, it's sort of a standing joke that I have is that, you know, the dogs do go out of aircrafts and they go out of boats, and we don't ask them, you know, because they're going anyway. And so it's better not to ask if they care not because they have to do it. So. There was a that was a good memory of mine. If you know that guy really gave me something they can heck I'm worried about getting myself out of this thing. And I guess hurt. He's okay. He'll be okay. He suffered. I am. Demeaning the go for it. Let me tell ya. Well, he's doors are tough. So you know, we do for wearing quick you were talking about wearing equipment. They do wear all kinds of equipment, and they're just so motivated to work like your dogs, even I mean, they don't like you said that your dog would retrieve all day long. These retrieve all day long. You say what are you have to retrieve with the vest on? They said they'll look at you and say, I don't care if I haven't been handcuffs. I'm gonna go get my tour. Yeah. So we use all of those drives to our advantage. It's they get used to sometimes look at the dogs and I do chocolate. Okay. You got things on your feet because it's bad terrain. You got this vest on? Because you got to do x y and z, and then you gotta muzzle one because of whatever. And now we're wearing are pro because we're around helicopters and their tails are up and they're happier. Like, you're wearing a bunch of jokes. So let's just go work. I love that. There's an image in the book that I love of a dog that looks so happy, and he is exactly like you described with the muzzle with the I gear with. I mean, you can hardly tell that. It's a dog except for his adorable little ears that are sticking out. With all that going on. And all they can think about is. Hey, wintertime to go to work. Yeah. Yeah. Excited. They are for work compared to what their paycheck is. Yes. The work. It's unbelievable. Yeah. It's all of us could have just a a quarter of that. Imagine what we could what we could do. And if the only paycheck we needed was a tennis ball or person food. It'd be pretty nice to. Yes. Yes. Will we just thank you so much for being with us? And thank you for the work that you're doing and the impact that you're having in the safety that you're providing to so many of us. So we really really appreciate you, and these incredible canines and their handlers to but we love the canine. Forever me. I I really appreciate it. We'll tell us really quickly before you have to run. How can our listeners? Get more information about you. And the book what's the best way? Is there a web ways to? Yeah. You could our website is Cobra canine.

"That'd be or just being what you're doing. You're you're avoiding the problem putting your gate. I think that's my lesser of two evils is whether it is. You and everyone else to go. And it's also sometimes the the whole I don't mind teaching dog to go the place you go to bed. I think it's a good idea. But if we're doing that so avoid a problem or still not fixing the problem, and that makes so much sense. And and these are things again that you teach here we our in the mid still summer, it's still hot. We're in Florida. It's it's disgustingly hot. How'd you oh my gosh. How do you keep your dog? So well, exercised without like overheating them in the heat with this kind of heat will we're not in Florida, but we're still not very nice out right now in Virginia and California in some of the other places that are working in the mid west. And so there's a couple of key things one. We have to realize that the dog has a for coat, and they're just not designed to be out two o'clock matinee when it's ninety five degrees with three thousand percent humidity just have to be very careful with them. But that the second thing is it's conditioning like for even for as a human. To some degree. You can teach yourself or teach your dog can tolerate a lot of things if you give your self time and give them time to get used to it. So it takes some of that as well. They have to just get just takes time takes weeks takes months, but condition for us. We the better the dog is conditioning. The better they can tolerate the silver example, even this morning Abigail, and I went four miles, but it was way before the sun came up. We're not going to go out there in the middle of the day and run the sun's beaten down on us, and and it's just hot as it can be. And we also recommend you know, depending on the dog make some dogs only can walk. So walk them on. It's dark out when the sun first comes up when the sun goes down, if the dog will do it or you have to places do obviously swimming is probably one of our favorite exercise. We swimmer dogs every week, obviously when they're swimming. They're not going to be hot, and they can still get a lot of conditioning out of it. Yeah. We we. So that's a really good. That's really. And I I try to take mine out. And I'm sure a lot of the listeners will will agree. I try to take mine out very early in the morning, and then I take them out later in the evening, maybe one quick one during the day. But but that minor pretty conditioned to that now. And this is all great advice. And you know, you are the expert, but where can the listeners go to learn more about you? And learn about what you do. Do you take on clients? I mean, if people do want this meeting, we do we have several different options on doing that in the that we do operates under cover canine dot com, it's easy to find. And you can look up and people can reach out to us. And there's something that we can help them with. We'd be traditional. Well, jeff. Thank you so much for being I guess, I thank you for all you've done for our country. And my gosh, thank you for all you have done with the animals and to learn more about Jeff you can go to his website. But also, there's this great inspiring book Franklin the man behind the United States commando dogs by Matthew Duffy, I'm telling you once you start reading that book. You are not going to be able to put it down in your you're going to say, I just listened to that guy. And he was talking about went to bring your dogs out during the day, and he trained these dogs to do that. It's so amazing. What you did? I have to thank you. And I thank you for being our guest, you've been a wonderful guest. And you've given us great information. And again, if if people wanna go get that book, you will not be surprised you'll be so happy you got it. And I'm telling you, I'm gonna be watching the movie.

"Canines signed to the US military, Jeff Franklin's unbelievable. Careers profiled in the new book Franklin demand behind the United States commando dogs by Matthew. Duffy, it chronicles the story of building the first of a kind dog program for top tier task force within the primp branch of the United States military. And we are so honored. And we are so happy to have with us today. Jeff franklin. Welcome geoff. How are you? Good morning. I'm great. How are you? Very good. Thank you. Now. Your life is as I said, it's an inspiring story, but your life is absolutely amazing. And what you've done can you just tell listeners a little bit about yourself. So I started off your dogs as a hobby. Believe it or not as a kid progress from there, I spent some time in the Marine Corps. I wanted to be a canine top since I was in middle school. And I did some time with that and learned how to play with the police dogs in dogs, and eventually I was recruited by the US government to do some other projects. And now some of those projects that you did and they are detailed in this book, which is a phenomenal book, by the way. I is people to get it because you're not gonna be able to put it down reads like an action. In fact, I could see a movie coming out of this action packed thriller. It was so so so good, can you tell us a little bit about the work that you did with the military dogs in that training program you created. So my task was basically take what I my experience I had in law enforcement and swat teams and teach military operators. How to effectively used don's and very similar type scenarios obviously there overseas. So there are. Some differences. But there's a lot of people that are really good with tactics and running that know how to move through buildings and signed bad jobs. But when you throw in a live animal that's wanting to do the same thing. Sometimes they don't know how to operate together. Sure are kinda came up with a plan on how to integrate our police canines or military canines in with the operators at the same time. So they both can do their jobs Semel, technically. Because my first started in this. It was always separate. You guys are either doing the clearance or the dog was in the building. And no one else was allowed to be around it because it was a monster that was going to eat everybody. So we very very highly motivated dogs worshiper social and with the right handlers in operators when you mix them together where they could be affected together. I found it interesting. When I read like, I'll use the dog Bosco, you said wanna go to work. I believe that was the commute. They knew how to shift from being in their crate, just like relaxing too. Okay. I'm going to get to work. Now. There's like you had different code words that actually brought them got their attention. And they responded I mean, it was amazing the way they responded, and they were like by their side by side. They mimicked your movements in I don't wanna get with book away. But I mean, there's so much. There's so much like my heart was racing. I couldn't wait to get to the next page. But it was amazing. How he was just like by your side. I mean, mimicking your movements. And it was like a even though he was your canaille. He was a canine partner. It was almost like a human. Well, it it does like human when you're the handler dogs like this, and you really know each other's every movements, and I'm gonna tell a trade secret. It doesn't really matter. What I say. It's mostly how I say what the body language says. I can I can say peanut butter and the right tone of voice and have the right body language by dogs are be ready to go. It's kinda interesting like a lot of people in. I think we briefly talked about this earlier that there's. Start while I'm gonna use certain language commands for my dogs. Is it to be honest? It doesn't really matter what we say nearly as much as how. And when we say and Dondra masters at body language. I I think I could probably convince my dog it's time to go to work. Rodney Walker without even saying work. And it's because if you think about they don't talk to each other much. No, it's so if there's an animal on this player that knows body language, it's dogs there. There are the ultimate masters body language, for sure I have someone that I know who has a personal protection dog and actually a couple of people, and they the one that I know is it the dog response to the commander in another language, and she does have body commands to and she's with it all the time you train canine protection dogs as well as other dogs. Can you tell us a little bit about that? I'm gonna tell you another trade secret that's going to be funny for you. We really don't train personal protection dogs. It's all about the dog selection. You know, are you still analysis a lot, but the one train LeBron James how to play basketball somebody just just let him do it. And I think for dogs if we look at any job specifically, we're talking about I montecchi if we select the right dog to do this really what we're doing. We're teaching the humans how to handle this animal because Dodd taught him how to do it when they were born in a lot of times, I think people were watching much on what they consider training. But we rely on is what is the dodge natural ability Bosco, for example, if he didn't have the genetics in the natural drive to do that work. No trainer in the World Cup teachings. Do the stuff that he didn't is working days is very good Bosco was. With with the preservation protection dogs. I think one of the you know, we have to select the right dog. And and the training really is about how to turn the dog on how the term the dog off teaching the hang loose. You know, those those type of things and then also you don't wanna dog. I don't actually say that's not social still has to be able to hang out with people friends and family, but turn it on when they need to, you know, sometimes people think protection dogs or military dogs or police dogs can't be social, but there's a lot of people that there's a lot of humans that do those same jobs, and you know, they go to WalMart and target and they shop like normal human Beijing. So it's time to go to work and the best working dogs are the same way they should be able to have a normal life, and they go to work when it's time to work. I'm so glad you brought that up because I I've so believed that, you know, especially like when a military dog retires or a police dog canine in in, you know, in the military or police or wherever it is. Needs to when they retire or something they need the social skills to they you know. So it's good to have that balance. In addition to all those amazing stories in all the those amazing daughters you've trained to run the world on my word there so highly skilled, but you also train at a Cobra Kane and you train pet dogs. Now, can I ask you a couple of questions about a pet dogs? Sure. I'm going to ask you this first one because I have I have a problem with one of my dogs. Can you give us some advice? Like if your dog barks a lot or begs for food or is like jumping like when you have guests coming is there. Some good advice for that. I have to I have a rebel. Here's here's the thing that we teach. I think that there's a lot different again. You're probably you've probably heard this already. I'll say it again. I do things a little bit different. But I do it because it works. So for example, most of the time you referenced a dog earlier that went to training class, and it didn't make it or whatever if I have a dog. It's for example, you just named barking jumping begging for food it you could list a long list of Mainers wanna dog. The number one mistake in out people. Don't get mad at me. But the number one mistake dog trainers. Do they try to convince the dog to do something else? So go get under your bed or go. Sit down and go lie down or go, do whatever. Instead of addressing the problem. I can fix ninety percent of what people's problems over there without using one command. You don't need commands you need to tell the Dogra stop doing whatever that behaviour is. So they can understand it dogs don't understand avoidance behavior like like humans do so they don't process. Information the same way. So for example, if alpha dog, it's his turn to eat and someone else tries to interrupt him. He doesn't certainly go over there lay on the rock and bake from me to finish. He works them up around the neck and says, hey, you wherever you want to do, but don't bother me while I'm eating, and it's kind of the way I look at it in my house. It just don't come in the kitchen kitchen until not become the kitchen. Vicky. They'll do whatever else they want. I don't care. But they're not allowed the kitchen and the same thing we'll hit people over you can say so much can't jump. So there has to be and there's a whole list of the whole holistic things that you could do for that. But it has to be some sort of negative consequences says, hey, you're not allowed to jump and you'd have to be very blocking my rules have to be the same all the time. But it really throws dog sincere. Frenzied if the rules are are gray. They're never going to understand not to jump or not to pull on the leash and not to beg for food or all the things that people want their dogs not to do. So if we look at it from a dog's perspective, and we'll just make it simple and says, here's the ten things you're not allowed to do. And we reinforced that every single time pretty quickly that he was going to go away one things that you, and I talked about as we were off Mike I talked about what about dogs have gone through Videon score. But they're still not really obedient and they have bad manners. So that I reach everybody. Because again, I'm not trying to pick on any particular training system. But. Dog trainers that I run across all across the world. They focused on things like he'll sit down and say, we'll even if your dog, this is let's pretend you said you a rebel rebel was really good. At those things that doesn't make the Rabe rebel good at the hazy. There's a big difference between doing obedience command and hasn't manners or behaving. So you could go through channel meetings plant classes, and if it's not addressed on how to give a negative consequences to bad behavior. Then you're still going to be happy. You might have a dog that sits really nice though, when it's not sitting it might just be a terror. So it doesn't when we see dogs whether they came from the shelter, and they've never had any work whatsoever or been to three different obedience schools. We evaluate them. And we try to address the owners biggest problems are. And then we work from there because I don't really I think I'd probably give my dog. Maybe five commands a week. I don't give them mini mansion just doesn't need them. I I told her how to behave say that's like and what the one that. I'm talking about. She knows her sit her stay her down her play. She knows everything I have to feed her in her great. So she doesn't attack the other two. But it's just like when we have people come. She just goes. And so I have to like actually gate her in a back room kind of have our little safe-space, and I'm talking about a dog, that's like six pounds. So, but she thinks she's she could probably come work for you. She thinks she's one of your dogs. She she has a big dog mentality. She's fierce. But she's a love a love Muffin. But I mean, she goes into mode me, and she is like the protector of the house and the other to go. Okay. You can go do the work. We're just gonna sit over. I I might need a dog that size. I'm over the year, the older, I get the less. I want dogs as big as Bosco. I can tell you. So, but I think if even with your dog, what's her if she had, you know, if you were to say, okay, this is my negative reinforcement for whatever the behavior, and I'm gonna use this reinforcement every single time their behavior will eventually be and it should be extinct. Pretty quick dogs. Are they learn really fast when you give them options what you're really doing?.

"But Jeff is also responsible for overseeing the selection and instruction of all the elite canines signed to the US military. Jeff Franklin's unbelievable career is profiled in the new book Franklin the man behind the United States commando dogs by Matthew. Duffy, it chronicles the story of building the first of a kind dog program for top tier task force within the permanent branch of the United States military. And we are so honored. And we are so happy to have with us today. Jeff franklin. Welcome geoff. How are you? Good morning. I'm great. How are you? Very good. Thank you. Now. Your life is as I said, it's an inspiring story, but your life is absolutely amazing. And what you've done can you just tell listeners a little bit about yourself. So I started off dogs as a hobby. Believe it or not as a kid progress from there, I spent some time in the Marine Corps. I wanted to be a canine top since I was in middle school, and I did some time with that and learned how to play with police dogs and swat dogs who eventually I was recruited by the US government to do some other projects. And now some of those projects that you did and they are detailed in this book, which is a phenomenal book, by the way, I advise people to get it because you're not gonna be able to put it down. It reads like an action plan. In fact, I could see a movie coming out of this action packed thriller. It was so so so good, can you tell us a little bit about the work that you did with the military dogs and that training program you created. So my task was basically take what I my experience that I had in law enforcement and swat teams and teach military operators how to effectively used dogs and very similar type scenarios, obviously, they're overseas. So there are. Some differences, but there's a lot of people that are really good with tactical running that know how to move through buildings and find bad guys. But when you throw in a live animal that's wanting to do the same thing. Sometimes they don't know how to operate together shore are kinda came up with a plan on how to integrate or police canines or military canines in with the operators at the same time. So they both can do their jobs somewhat tenuously. 'cause my first started in this. It was always separate you the Gaza either during the clearance or the dog is in the building. And no one else was allowed to be around it because there was some monster that was gonna eat everybody. So which is very very highly motivated dogs or worshiper social and with the right handlers in operators when you mix them together where they could be affected together found it interesting. When I read like, I'll use the dog Bosca, you said wanna to go to work. I believe that was that they knew how to shift from being in their crate, just like relaxing too. Okay. I'm going. Get to work. Now. There's like you had different code words that actually brought them got their attention. And they responded. I mean, it was amazing the way they responded, and they were like by their side by side. They mimicked your movements in I don't want to give away. But I mean, there's so much. There's so much. It's like my heart was racing. I couldn't wait to get to the next page. But it was amazing. How he was just like by your side. I mean, mimicking your movements. And it was like a even though he was your canaille. He was a canine partner. It was almost like a human. Well, it it does sound like a human when you're the handler of dogs like this. And you really know each other's every movement, and I'm going to tell a trade secret. It doesn't really matter. What word I say? It's mostly how I say what the body language says. I can I say peanut butter and the right tone of voice and have the right body language by dogs are going to be ready to go. It's kind of interesting like a lot of people. And I think we briefly talked about this earlier they'd start while I'm gonna use certain language commands for my dogs. To be honest. It doesn't really matter what we say nearly as much as how. And when we say it and dogs masters at body language. I think I could probably convince my dog it's time to go to work right Newark without even saying one work, and if you think about they don't talk to each other much. No, it's so if there's an animal on this player that most body language, it's dogs there. There are the ultimate masters body language, for sure I have someone that I know who has a personal protection dog and actually a couple of people, and they the one that I know is the dog response to the commander in another language, and she does have body commands to and she's with it all the time you train canine protection dogs as well as other dogs. Can you tell us a little bit about that? I'm gonna tell you another trade secret that's going to be funny for you, really. Don't train personal protection dogs. It's all about the dog selection. You know, are you silly analysis a lot, but the one train LeBron James how to play basketball somebody just let him do it. And it's I think for dogs if we look at any job, but specifically we're talking about personal protection. If we select the right dog to do this really what we're doing teaching the humans how to handle this animal because Dodd taught him how to do it when they were born in a lot of times, I think people were watching much what they consider training what we rely on his what is the dog's natural ability Bosco, for example, if he didn't have the genetics in the natural drive to do that work. No trainer in the world could teachings do the stuff that he didn't just working days is very good. Bye. With the preservation protection dogs. I think one of the you know, we have to select the right dog. And and the training really is about how to turn the dog on how to turn the dog off teaching the hang loose. You know, those those type of things and then also you don't wanna dog. I Don I should say that's not social still has to be able to hang out with people friends and family, but turn it on when they need to, you know, sometimes people think protection does military or police dogs. Can't be social. But there's a lot of people that there's a lot of humans that do those same jobs, and you know, they go to WalMart and target and they shop like normal human Beijing time to go to work and the best working dogs are the same way they should be able to have a normal life, and they go to work with it's time to work. I'm so glad you brought that up because I so believed that, you know, especially like when a military dog retires or a police dog canine in in the in the military or police or wherever it is needs to when they retire or something they need the social skills to they, you know. So it's like good to have that balance. In addition to all those amazing stories in all the those amazing daughters. You've trained around the world on my word there so highly skilled, but you also train at Kober and you train pet dogs. Now, can I ask you a couple of questions about pet dogs? Sure. I mean ask you this first one because I have. I have a problem with one of my dogs. Can you give us some advice? Like if your dog barks a lot or begs for food or is like jumping like when you have guests coming is there. Some good advice for that. I have to Goodwin's ni-. I have a rebel. Well, here's here's the thing that we teach. I think that is a lot different again. You're probably you've probably heard this already. I'll say it again. I I do things a little bit different. But I do it because it works. So for example, most of the time, you you referenced a dog earlier that went to training class, and it didn't make it or whatever if I have dogs, for example, you just named barking jumping begging for food, and you could list a long list of manors wanna dog to the number one mistake in out people. Don't get mad at me. But the number one mistake dog trainers. Do they try to convince the dog to do something else? So go get under your bed or go. Sit down or go lie down or go, do whatever. Instead of addressing the problem. I can fix ninety percent of what people's problems over there without using one command. You don't need commands you need to tell the vulgar, stop doing whatever that behaviour is. So they can understand it dogs don't understand avoidance behavior like like humans do so they don't process. Information the same way. So for example, if alpha dog, it's his turn to eat and someone else tries to interrupt him. He doesn't certainly go over there lay on the rock and wait for me to finish. He works up around the neck and says, hey, you wherever you want to do. But don't bother me. Why me and it's kind of the way I look at it in my house. Doc, just don't come in the kitchen come the kitchen, still not become the kitchen can go do whatever else they want. I don't care, but they're not allowed the kitchen and the same thing we'll hit people over you can say hi to him, but you can't jump. So there has to be and there's a whole list of the whole holistic things that you could do for that. But it has to be some sort of negative consequences says, hey, you're not allowed to jump and you'd have to be very black and my rules have to be the same all the time with it really throws dog sincere frenzy if the rules are are gray. They're never going to understand not to jump or not to pull on the leash and not to beg for food or all the things that people want their dogs not to do. So we look at it from a dog perspective. And we'll just make it simple and says, here's the ten things you're not allowed to do. And we reinforce that. Every single time a pretty quickly that behavior is going to go away one things that you, and I talked about as we were off Mike I talked about what about dogs have gone through obedience school, but they're still not really obedient and they have bad manners. So that I search everybody because again, I'm not trying to pick on any particular training system. But dog trainers that I run across all across the world. They they focused on things like he'll sit down and say, we'll even if your dog, this is let's pretend you said earlier, you a rebel rebel was really good.

So you could go through channel meetings classes, and if it's not addressed on how to give a negative consequences to a bad behavior. Then you're still not gonna be happy. You might have a dog that sits really nice though, when it's not sitting it might just be a terror. So it doesn't when we see dogs whether they came from the shelter, and they've never had any work whatsoever or been to three different obedience schools. We evaluate them. And we try to address the owners biggest problems are. And then we work from there. 'cause I don't really I think I'd probably give. Dog maybe a week. I just I don't give them many Comanche. Just doesn't need them. I taught her how to behave say that's like and the one that I'm talking about. She knows her set her stay her down her place. She knows everything I have to feed her in her great. So she doesn't attack the other two. But it's just like when we have people come. She just goes. And so I have to like actually gate her in a back room kind of have our little safe-space, and I'm talking about a dog, that's like six pounds. So, but she thinks she's she could probably come work for you. She thinks she's one of your dog. She she has that big dog mentality. She's fierce. But she's a love a love Muffin. But I mean, she goes into mode, man. She is like the protector of the house and the other to go. Okay. You can go do the work. We're just gonna sit over. I might I might need a dog that size. I'm you know. Over the year, the older, I get the less. I want laws big as Vasco. I can tell you. So, but I think if even with your with her if she had, you know, if you were to say, okay, this is my negative reinforcement for whatever the behavior, and I'm gonna use this reinforcement every single time their behavior will eventually be and it should be extinct. Pretty quick dogs. Are they learn really fast when you give them options? What you're really doing?.

"I can tell you. So, but I think if even with your dog with her if she had, you know, if you were to say, okay, this is my negative reinforcement for whatever the behavior is. And I'm going to use this reinforcement every single time their behavior will eventually be and it should be extinct. Pretty quick dogs. Are they learn really fast when you give them options what you're really doing? Or just being what you're doing? You're you're avoiding the problem. Putting your date? I think that's my lesser of two evils is what it is. Well, you and everyone else. And it's also sometimes the the whole I don't mind to go the place you go to bed. I think it's a good idea. But if we're doing that. So the problem, we're still not fixing the problem, and that makes so much sense. And and these are things again that you teach here we our in the mid still summer, it's still hot. We're in Florida. It's it's disgustingly hot. How do you? Oh my gosh. How do you keep your dog? So well, exercised without like overheating them in the heat with this kind of heat. We're not in Florida, but which still not very nice out right now in Virginia, and California and some other places that are working in the mid west. And so there's a couple of key things one. We have to realize that the dog has a fur coat, and they're just not designed to be out at two o'clock matinee when it's ninety five degrees with three thousand percents unity just have to be very careful with them. But that the second thing is it's conditioning like for even for as a human to some degree. You can teach yourself or teach your dog can tolerate a lot of things if you give your show. Self time and give them time to get used to it. So it takes some of that as well. They have to just get just takes time takes weeks takes months, but condition for us. We the better the dog is conditioning. The better they can tolerate the heat. So for example, even this morning Abigail, and I went four miles, but it was way before the sun came up. We're not going to go out there in the middle of the day and run it. So the sun's beaten down on us, and it's just hot as it can be. And we also recommend you know, depending on the dog made some dogs only can walk so walk on it's dark out when the sun first comes up when the sun goes down, if the dog will do it or you have place to do obviously swimming is probably one of our favorite exercise. We swimmer dogs every week, obviously when they're swimming. They're not not going to be hot. And they can still get a lot of conditioning out of it. Yeah. We we. So that's a really good. That's a really, and I I try to take mine out. And I'm sure a lot of the listeners will will agree. I try to take mine out very early in the morning, and then I take them out. Later in the evening, and maybe one quick one during the day. But but that minor pretty conditioned to that now. And this is all great advice. And you know, you are the expert, but where can the listeners go to learn more about you? And learn about what you do or do you take on clients? I mean, if people do want this meeting, we do we have several different options on doing that. And everything that we do operate under cover canine dot com. It's easy to find. And you can look up and people can reach out to us. And there's something that we can help them with. We'd be guided additional well, Jeff, I thank you so much for being I guess, I thank you for all you've done for our country. And my gosh, thank you for all you have done with the animals, and I to learn more about Jeff you can go to his website. But also, there's this great inspiring book Franklin the man behind the United States commando dogs by Matthew Duffy, I'm telling you once you start reading that book. You are not going to be able to put it down in. You're you're gonna say I just listened to that guy. And he was talking about when to bring your dogs out during the day, and he trained these dogs to do that. It's so amazing. What you did? I have to thank you. And I thank you for being our guest, you've been a wonderful guest. And you've given us great information. And again, if if people wanna go get that book, you will not be surprised you'll be so happy you got it. And I'm telling you, I'm going to be watching the movie gotta make a.

Can you tell us a little bit about that? I'm gonna tell you another trade secret that's going to be funny for you. We really don't train personal protection dogs. It's all about the dog selection. You know, are you silly analysis a lot but Luwan train LeBron James how to play basketball somebody just just let him do it. And I think for dogs if we look at any job, it's just difficult. We're talking about personal checks. If we select the right dog to do this really what we're doing. We're teaching the humans how to handle this animal because Dodd taught him how to do it when they were born in a lot of times, I think people were watching much what they consider training. But we rely on is what is the dodge natural ability. Moscow. For example, if he didn't have the genetics in the natural drive to do that work. No trainer in the World Cup teachings. Do the stuff that he didn't just working days is very good Bosco was. So with with the preservation protection dogs. I think one of the you know, we have to select the right dog. And and the training really is about how to turn the dog on how to turn the dog off teaching the hang loose. You know, those those type of things and then also you don't wanna dog. I Don I should say that's not social though, still has to be able to hang out with people friends and family, but turn it on when they need to, you know, sometimes people think protection dogs or military balls or police dogs can't be social. But there's a lot of people that there's a lot of humans that do those same jobs, and you know, they go to WalMart and target and they shop like normal human Beijing. So it's time to go to work and the best working dogs are the same way they should be able to have a normal life, and they go to work when it's time to work.

So it was one of the things where it also let me know how long I've been doing the job the longer you. Do anyone skillset especially with with dogs? The more of them that are going to pass with time. Yeah. Yeah. It's just yeah. It's just nature. But yeah, I know that's what when you talk about a six year work life. That's not very long. No, that's a wink of an eye. Yeah. It goes way too fast. Yes. It does. Yeah. I know. That's what I'm on my fourth assistance dog. And so I yeah. So totally appreciate that that that's that's the bummer part with night with a. You know throughout the book. There's there's only that's just a drop in the bucket of the positive experiences. I've had the big dogs in my life that have done so much good work that you know. It's it's worth the sad part of it absolutely will. And I'm just so amazed by all the skills, but you've train these dogs to do these highly highly intense and sensitive situations. I mean, be and helicopters and all the different types of things that that they have to do is just so impressive in the equipment that they have to wear is there one memory that sticks out that you can share with us. Yeah. So you're talking about tell you a funny one that I like to share there was a dog. And now that we were in a helicopter, and we were getting close to where we need to be in this helicopter crew person looked over at me and goes, hey, what's he thinking about jumping avenue helicopter said, sir? I don't know. I've never asked him. I'm too worried about myself. So so we, you know, that's sort of a standing joke that I have is that, you know, the dogs do go out of aircrafts and they go out of boats, and we don't ask them, you know, because they're going anyway. And so it's better not to ask if they care not because they have to do it. So. That was a that was a good memory of mine, if you know that really gave me something last thinking, heck, I'm worried about getting myself out of this thing, and I guess hurt. He's okay. He'll be okay. He's tougher than I am. A whole new meaning the Gulf war it let me tell ya. Doors are tough. So you know, I we do. Far as wearing a quit. You were talking about wearing equipment. They do wear all kinds of equipment, and they're just so motivated to work like your dogs. Even I mean, they don't like you said that your dog would retrieve all day long. These will retrieve all day long. You say what you have to retrieve with the vest on. They said look at you and say, I don't care if I haven't been handcuffs. I'm gonna go get my tour. Yeah. So we use all of those drives to our advantage. And and you know, it's they get used to sometimes I look at the dogs and not do chocolate. Okay. You got things on your feet because it's bad terrain. You got this vest on? Because you got to do x y and z, and then you gotta muzzle one because of whatever now we're wearing I pro because we're around helicopters and their tails are up and they're happier. Like, you're wearing a bunch of junk. So Ma let's just go work. I love that. There's an image in the book that I love of a dog that looks so happy, and he is exactly like you described with the muzzle with the I gear with I mean, you can hardly tell the dog except for his adorable little ears that are sticking out with all that going on. And all they can think about is. Hey, wintertime to go to work. Yeah. Yeah. Excited. They are for work. Yeah. Compared to what their paycheck is. Yes. The work. It's unbelievable. Yeah. It's all of us could have just a a quarter of that. Imagine what we could what we could do if the only paycheck. We needed was a tennis ball or food. It'd be pretty nice to. Yes. Yes. Will we just thank you so much for being with us? And thank you for the work that you're doing and the impact that you're having in the safety that you're providing to so many of us. So we really really appreciate you, and these incredible canines and their handlers too. But we love the canine. Ravin me. I I really appreciate it.
