I am honored that Chris Willingham agreed to foreword the workbook Imprint Your Detection Dog in 15 Days.
Chris and I first met in 2006 while instructing the Specialized Search Dog (SSD) course at 341st Training Squadron, Military Working Dog School at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. Chris is a friend and an exceptional character that served with the United States Marine Corps, Special Forces, and Secret Service. His canine partner, Lucca, was the subject of Maria Goodavage’s book; Top Dog: The Story of Marine Hero Lucca. In 2016 Lucca was the first USMC K9 to be awarded the Dickens Medal for bravery by the British organization People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals.
Chris is an incredible trainer, instructor, and friend.
