You'll hear some of the inside challenges of police dog training,  and what made Mattis an exceptional straight "A" certification graduate.   Mark is a gifted story teller and has some amazing stories to tell.   He shares a couple of them in this episode, including Angels who sang an unlikely  Neil Diamond song, a heart wrenching story of an  incredible kid who had a heart transplant,  and a Mark and Mattis police chase.  (among others)One might think pastoring and policing is an odd career progression  but Mark is convinced, for him, it was a God inspired combination that helped him find his true gift and passion.  And now he shares his story in a book with 12 chapters,  12 stories, and 12 lessons he learned in the process.  

  PS.  Remember,  DOG spelled backwards is GOD.  So, there is that.
