Fur Missiles with Mike Ritland – Ridiculous Dialogue Episode 48

By The ITS Crew


Episode 48

On this episode, Bryan and Rob are joined by Mike Ritland, former Navy SEAL, founder of Warrior Dog Foundation and owner of Trikos International. They discuss Mike’s background and what got him started training K-9s.

They also reminisced about running around the woods in camouflage growing up, building snow forts and other random acts of mischief.


Ridiculous Dialogue was created to share the banter that takes place at Imminent Threat Solutions on a daily basis. It’s us; candid, unedited and talking about everything from what movies we’re watching to the general geekiness that keeps us laughing here at ITS HQ.

While we generally keep the vibe in our articles PG rated, be warned, it may not be safe to blast over your speakers at work. We hope you enjoy the insight into ITS and who we are behind the scenes as a company; pull up a chair and tune in to Radio ITS.

    Great show guys.
    I just ordered a copy of your book Mike and look forward to it arriving. I am nearly done with the training of my Shepard and looking for a female pup for my pack this spring. I look forward to trying your methods and comparing them, or better put, possibly melding them to the Kohler method which I was taught. Much like you, I relate to dogs so much more then people… hense living in the deep bush with nothing but my dogs. I trust my life to them and they put the same trust in me. People can be shit heads, if a dog is a shit head it is due to the owner.
    The name of the movie you guys were looking for, I believe, is “Snow day,” a Canadian classic. With my love of dogs, and being 7 years old when I first saw it, I have never forgotten it due to the death of the saint bernard.

      P.S. I love the term ‘fur missile’, I have always used ‘slobber bomb’
