No one wakes up in the morning thinking today will be the day they are attacked. Let alone that it could be their last day on earth.
At Sheepdog Response, we believe Situational Awareness is the cornerstone of self preservation - it’s taught at every course and reinforced throughout every piece of our curriculum. And in today’s climate, it’s more important than ever before.
In our newest virtual training, one of Sheepdog Response's Counterintelligence Specialists teaches you how to develop a relaxed awareness about your environment and be able to identify what doesn’t fit so you can be ready to respond and put yourself in the best possible position.
This training covers the four A’s of situational awareness (Awareness, Assessment, Action, Analysis) and outlines how thinking is the first step to self defense.
RUN TIME: 82 Minutes
Really great information and the video is shot exceptionally well. This is the new standard.
I feel my purchases were way too expensive for what I received.
Wealth of knowledge. Makes you realize that you are learning everyday!
I found this interesting and useful. I'm 40 years removed from my military service so the acronyms are things that I didn't have to work with. Many of the concepts themselves remain the same. I would think most current/recent service members would find this less interesting just because it would be something they already know.
I do wish there was a .pdf that contained a chapter by chapter outline along with all the acronyms. It would be helpful to review so that I didn't need to make my own notes and go over the video chapters repeatedly. I will do that but having something I could print off would be helpful.
I'm a veteran and as the years passed I lost many of these skills because I no longer practised or applied them. Now I'm disabled and use forearm crutches in both arms and feel that despite my 6'5" 270 lbs frame I'm the weakest one usually in a crowd. I've taken concealed carry courses and carry due to both my handicaps and the state of violence in this country. This course has helped awaken me to situational awareness again, thank you. Also I'm looking for courses geared for the handicapped.
Excellent video presentations with great visuals. Great explanations of concepts. The multiple acronyms can be a tad overwhelming for those "not in the know". References to situations overseas or foreign countries might be better in a separate (or second step class on sit. awareness) course. Maybe more examples of common cues by criminals/perps. Overall still very informative.
All great information. I’ve been in a live situational training and it was really scary. It was called Live shooter training.
Really can't rate this because my computer froze up and had to restart when it came back up videos were gone and I could not complete watching and was not allowed to repurchase with my uscca code.
I viewed the video chapters fairly quickly and without taking notes. There is lots of terrific material that I plan to go back and take notes through a second viewing....life lessons to make my own. Thank you for putting this valuable teaching material together.
I never received the product couldn’t find it on my phone didn’t get it in the mail.
I learned a lot of this stuff in my 24 years in the Air Force as I was ALL over this world and in some Not so Friendly places!!! This taught me much more. I got my CCP just under a year ago and I Always carry. Some of your stuff were refreshers from the AF. I can definitely use all the training, especially when I'm out and about. Thanks!
As a Safety and Security Pastor at my church I was impressed with the material that was provided. Especially impressed with the tactics that were discussed and explained. A biblical approach with scripture references and a solid explanation of the "How to" Certainly enjoyed the training and would highly recommend!
Very good and informative. I enjoyed it 3 times now.
The video(s) are easy to understand and they cover many areas of training concerns. I really enjoyed watching them.
Sensible, practical, no wasted time, but sufficiently deep. Great start!
I found the video series to be very informative. Admittedly you "got me" in the first video but not the second one so your training definitely elevated my awareness. I'm in CA so not much opportunity to be out and about right now but will definitely be practicing whenever I do go out.
Really enjoyed the course! The course brought me around to the real world that I was not nearly as aware as I should be and I am now utilizing what I learned daily to improve. Thank you to Sheepdog Response for putting the course together and their partnership with USCCA to provide this level of training to the USCCA members!
This was a great course. I learned a lot from it. I would have liked to have seen more scenarios played out in it as examples.
The video to me was a review of my years that i spent in law enforcement and what we went though in law academy in Colorado, so i found it very helpful.
Very informative. Helped my confidence being aware of and knowing circumstances to look for while we were on our vacation. My how times have changed this year! I will continue to use and improve these skills in all aspects of my everyday life! Thanks Sheepdog and USCCA for the virtual training! Keep your powder dry!
Good information to know.
I never received an access link. All I got were demands that I pay for other training. You did not deliver the first time why should I give another round.
Found the course to be eye opening to how we need to situational aware.
Not user friendly.
After downloading this "free" training video; I could never get it to play for me. I contacted the company but to no avail. It is really hard to give a positive review under those circumstances.
I've taken Situational Awareness courses before. This was unique due to the Special Operator perspective. It provided a greater overview as a background to develop a baseline, and on not attracting attention. While I won't be traveling internationally, it does help with focusing on what is really important regionally and locally to avoid cognitive overload.
Even the information I have learned before was presented well, with a few details that made it a bit clearer. The tips and acronyms are a big help.
I so appreciate Sheepdog Response partnering with the USCCA in offering this course. I hope there will be more to come. I want to learn and train as much as possible to protect myself, my family, my Church and my community. Thank you.
I didn't receive my copy
Given the price, this was a total waste! If you want to learn about situational awareness, you would do a lot better reading the experts: Gavin de Becker, Tim Larkin, Patrick Van Horne, Joe Navarro, Gav Schneider, Jonathan Gilliam and several others. But these videos failed to even mention 99% of what those guys teach about situational awareness and offered nothing but elementary generalizations that any elementary school kid already knows.
One of the best training programs I have ever taken. It surely has brought a new perspective to being aware. Thank you
Excellent content, broken down perfectly into categories. The duration is spot on, and easy to understand. Great information, and will be easily implemented at home, work, and especially at my part-time as a member of an armed security detail.
The Situational Awareness video is very informative. It helps train the eye to look for signs that I would never have thought of otherwise. The instructor is detail oriented and leaves no stone unturned.
I thought I was pretty aware of things as we go out around town BUT I have learned much and certainly appreciate what your doing ! Thanks ! ! Respectfully, David P.
Always be aware when you are traveling...the bad guys know the area much better than you will.
Great video. Very well done. Laid out in a very logical and methodical approach. Nice pace.
The video is informative but I would expect it to have more exercises that would allow a viewer implement some of the skills being taught. I would label it more of a lecture than a training.
What a well constructed program that is of great value to me and would be to others. Keep um coming
Registered and set up acct. When signing in, the msg instructed me to reset my password. I made several attempts to do so and the site indicated I would be sent an email to reset my password. I even sent you an email outlining the situation and have not received a reply. I haven't received any reply to either reset my password or address my problems.
I would really like to take the training I signed up for and have seen other video trainings on your website I would like to buy but until this issue is resolved it appears I won't be able to .
Awesome course, learned some valuable things
Definitely will comeback a few times to re-enforce things I learned
I am always wanting to learn more about the shooting sports and being a part of sheepdog response has helped me do that and I want to take more classes to help me operate my gun range .
So far so good. I've only watched the first video.
Loved it, please show more
It is so easy to forget to be aware. This course provides the know how to so you don't lose your guard.
Informative; It showed a different way of looking at environments, and situations, when the entire time it was always there, I just had not been noticing. It made me think of how I can be more aware, and alert, yet not causing more work nor having to expend more energy.
The information and presentation were great. The camera work was a bit shaky at times. I would like to see some take aways - like a PDF or infographic for the acronyms used. I found myself having to re-watch a few of the modules to remember them. Over all though, this was a great way to present the content.
I set this up and then log in and try to watch the videos and the message I get for the video says this video cannot play because of privacy settings, i contact customer service and get pretty much no service
Well made. Thorough. Excellent presenter. Looking forward to taking on-site training.
I expected more! Went SD 1 heard this already. Thought he would go more into it? Should be another level for people.
Very well taught and clear to understand. I have listened to audio and video on situational awareness before, plus a few chapters out of a book in class, but not like this. I appreciate every section that was taught to me and I listened to it over and over. Thank you !
I found the info to be good. I am 73 and been shooting for 60 years and you had new info for me to improve my skills. It was well presented and helpful. Thanks, Steve
more scenario based videos would have been nice
Really helped me become aware about certain situations that I never thought I would catch myself in.
nothing to share it's ok
Very impressive and thorough course on Situational Awareness, especially relevant in these tumultuous days of protests and unpredictability. Great examples and "tests" throughout.
I would love to have a set of handouts/outline with acronyms available for those who reinforce learning with notes or written materials.
Very informative and easy to follow Great Job
We all need Situational Awareness. Without it you could get hit by a car crossing the street!
Great job in discussing "situational awareness" and "being aware of your surroundings..."
I loved the virtual training. Very informative. Some people may think being aware of your surroundings is common sense, but it's not what you do but how you do it is what matters the most. I've learned through watching the video that their's more to it than just looking around.
Just went through the course a second time and picked up items I missed the first time. I am currently applying the training when I go into town, driving, and at the home.Very succinct and organized training. Well worth it.
I have not been able to access my program
I have learned more than I thought ever could about safet.
This is a training that I'll watch many times. Being aware of my surroundings, with littles in tow especially, is very important!
This video was very well put together, and a lot of great information!
It was a decent video package.
Don't know how to rate it since I have not seen this digital training since I am still waiting to receive it. Whenever I actually receive the training then I'll review it. Thanks.
I actually am left VERY confused. I subscribed for your free training video, but never heard anything further. I do not know how to proceed. I have received a few e-mails from you, but not detect acknowledgement of my order or any further steps to get involved.

I could not figure out how to view or redeem the training after I purchased it. That is why it is one star. I reached out via email and have not received a response. If I can view the training I purchased I’m sure I would reevaluate my review
Learning a lot of very info.thanks
we never received it. i sent numerous emails that y'all could not be bothered to answer. your business should be called "sheep shit response" !
Great information, easy to understand and incorporate into everyday life!
Really appreciate the info - very well thought through. Printed notes would have been helpful of key points. The video work was high quality. I am planning to share it with my son - 17 years old to get him better prepared to be away at college! Thanks again.
I would LOVE to say I like it or love it however, you never delivered the product. How can I rate something I ordered if you never fulfilled my order?
Very good content!
Very thorough instruction on the subject! Great information for those who wish to be security conscious!
I never received a link (that I can find) to view it. I emailed you to ask about that and haven't gotten a response. (?)
I'm loving the online virtual training. And a $120 savings by being a member of the USCCA. You guys FREAKING ROCK!!! Thank you Sheepdog Response.
The presentation was informative and I enjoyed the explanations and examples that reinforced the lessons.
Too much theoretical discussion with acronyms. As a USCCA member, I am interested in personal defense scenarios and "how to" illustrations. I think this video presentation was professionally produced but sorely lacking in specific examples of how to handle situational awareness in the real world. It seemed to me like a lecture given to government recruits or a corporate gathering.
This class showed me how important it is to always be aware of your surroundings and gave me the tools to always be situationally aware!
Excellent presentation Will, I continue to learn everyday from the great instructors at Sheepdog Response!
