ABOUT US

I am currently a K9 Police Officer and have been in dogs for over 15 years. I have been a K9 handler for the past 10 years. I have bred, trained, certified, and worked Trailing, Airscent, Cadaver, Bed Bug, Narcotics, Security, Therapy, Police, and sport dogs. I have competed and titled in IPO/SchH and AKC.I have had the opportunity to train with some amazing trainers over the last 15 years and continue to expand my knowledge daily. We are a quality over quantity mentality and our dogs speak for themselves.

 

You will find we are a family, and stand behind our dogs 100%. Knowing exactly what it takes to work a dog on the streets allows us to bring you the total dog while always genetically improving our breed and bringing the best to the USA.

Whether you are looking for your next K9 partner or just a family companion we promise to exceed your expectations. 

The most important thing to us is to provide healthy, solid nerve dogs that can be counted on to do their job. We only produce top quality dogs and have a very selective breeding program. Our dogs and reputation speak for themselves.

I have spent more than a decade professionally training thousands of dogs of varying ages, breeds, sizes, and temperaments. The last fifteen years I have traveled the United States taking a multitude of training courses and lectures and presenting my own on varying topics. My goal in working with canines is to remember who they are and why they are on earth with us. I realized that anyone can OWN a canine, what I wanted was a Canine Copilot in my life. A dog that I could have a complete, understanding, mutual relationship with. A dog who I could read his body language like a book, and him mine. I do not own my dogs, and they do not own me, we are a group, a unit of living beings who function together in everything that we do.  This ability is what I want to give to other humans.

Give me any dog and I can train him to do what you want, now give me the owner and let me help them understand why we do what we do and why it makes fido see  a lot clearer!!!!! Human communication is an important key to helping rehab dogs and its not always easy to switch back and forth between talking dog and talking human.
