Staff Sergeant Patrick MacIsaac, manager of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or “The Mountie’s,” Dog Service Training Centre, will be visiting the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine this month to observe and learn about the college’s Canine Performance Sciences, or CPS, program.

MacIsaac will evaluate CPS’ training and research activities, tour facilities and observe the Vapor Wake canine teams employed by Auburn’s canine training technology licensee, AMK9, at the Auburn vs. Ole Miss football game on Saturday, Oct. 31.

MacIsaac will give a seminar on Friday, Oct. 30, at noon in the Veterinary Education Center’s Overton Auditorium on the Mountie’s canine program. He will tell "The Story of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Canine Breeding and Training Program."

“Staff Sergeant MacIsaac will be visiting us to provide an informal review of our operations,” said Jim Floyd, CPS program advisor. “He has a long history of working dog breeding and training with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and is the past president of the International Working Dog Breeding Association.

“The insights and observations that he will provide during his visit will be extremely valuable to CPS as it refines its breeding program and continues to conduct leading edge detector canine research."
