How it Works

Consultation & ASSESSMENT

During the initial consultation, we will learn about your lifestyle and the goals you have for your personal protection K9. Do you need a dog that is great with kids, great deterrent, can effectively engage bad guys or maybe all of the above? We custom train each dog to the needs of our client.

selection

Our dogs are selected for their traits necessary to fit our clients needs as approved during our Consultation and Assessment. We import our dogs from Europe from a variety of vendors and breeders. We will find a number of dogs that can fit the profile for each client and have our client actively take part in selecting the perfect K9.

training

Our Training Process will vary in time and intensity, depending on our clients needs. Unlike most sport K9s posing as personal protection dogs, our K9s are trained for the sole purpose of personal protection to the level of our clients needs.

integration

Once our dogs are fully trained to the capabilities of our clients need, we begin the integration process. This is a process that can take a week or more. We will never leave you with your new family member until you feel 100% comfortable and confident.

continuation

We keep a relationship with all of our clients. We do not simply answer questions and emails, we maintain a continuation of training to keep your K9 as efficient as the day you received him. Perhaps you have new skills you wish your K9 to learn as your lifestyle changes—maintain original skills and adding new skills will be covered in our ongoing training program.
