The Advanced Canine Medical Trainer (K9 Diesel) is a full-body simulator for Operational Canine First Responders, Military Working Dog (MWD) handlers, Veterinarians, and Veterinary Technicians.

Designed in partnership with the Department of Defense (DoD), K9 Diesel is a state-of-the-art skills trainer that simulates active breathing, audio queues, and over 28 different features and medical intervention sites. Each training site is designed to replicate the look, feel, and function of actual medical procedures. Interchangeable limbs and injuries provide greater flexibility to vary wound patterns. K9 Diesel allows learners to perform a wide range of critical life-saving tasks with an incredibly realistic experience.

Remote Controlled with Real-time Sensor Data
K9 Diesel is operated by a long-range wireless controller (RC), which includes real-time data to monitor medical interventions remotely. The remote is easy to use and takes only minutes to learn. LED indicators and LCD readouts immediately display critical vital and intervention data and provide instructors with instant feedback on the effectiveness of student interventions. Push-button controls also allow modification of features such as pulse rate, pulse strength, breathing, bleeding, and sounds.
