My Backstory Podcast With Josh Boyer

ABOUT THIS EPISODE
in this episode Rick speaks openly and candidly about some of the harsh realities of war, and some of the sacrifices that families have to endure while soldiers are deployed or training. Rick's willingness to be vulnerable and honest made this such an amazing episode. Rick really does epitomize the idea of the quiet professional. He has accomplished so much inside and outside of the military yet is one of most humble men I have ever met. We also discuss the process of building War Hogg Tactical and what he envisions for the company.

Your hosts, Eric and Ted, sit down with Rick Hogg, the owner of War HOGG Tactical, Inc. and 29 year US Army Special Operation Combat Veteran, including being a Special Operations K9 handler, and the infamous K9 Duco’s handler. 

We would like to have a moment of silence for retired Special Operations Forces K9 Duco, who passed away earlier last month 

Hogg has over a dozen combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, and given recent political/foreign events, your hosts delve into Hogg’s opinions on the 1st Amendment and being silenced. (Hogg also goes on a bit of a Eric-Style rant about Big Tech!!)

In 2002, Hogg took his combat deployment experience, as well as his teaching experience as a Special Forces Advanced Urban Combat instructor, and harnessed them into a proven training methodology service company, War HOGG Tactical, Inc. when my Special Forces Advanced Urban Combat students returned from Afghanistan and said “That stuff you taught me saved my life!” (“That stuff” now consists of professional comprehensive mobile firearms, tactical and K9 training to law abiding civilians, military and law enforcement agencies through combat proven techniques and experience to improve students skill ability.) Hogg has trained with numerous law enforcement agencies at the local, state, and federal level, in addition to foreign militaries in marksmanship, room clearing, and K9 operations.

Hogg is a busy man, doing incredible things for the community. So be sure to sit down, listen up, and learn a thing or two from this legend!

Rick Hogg & K9 Duco

After a 29yr career in the special operations community, Rick Hogg retired from the US Army...and his war dog Duco retired with him.

Far from living the easy life post retirement, Duco has also had a popular video game character modelled after him, and has done a full season of training tips on Trigger Time TV.

Now Rick and Duco are teamed up to fight the osteosarcoma that has taken one of Duco's hind legs.
 

Rick talks about all things Duco as we try and get to the bottom of who this remarkable dog is, and some of what makes him so amazing.
