Protection Dogs And Police Dog Training With K-9 Defense!

K-9 Defense provides world-class protection dogs and police dog training.

Training dogs for law enforcement, personal protection, and detection has been our primary focus at K-9 Defense for the past 20 years. We strive to improve the human to canine relationship, the cornerstone of effective training. When we’re not helping dogs and people to better understand each other, we’re researching and learning new methods and techniques to keep our training cutting edge and 100% successful for the owner, handler, and dog. Each canine team has unique dynamics. We recognize that and work to bring forth the common ground between them to maximize their effectiveness together. Scientifically-based training and behavior knowledge are our passions and the result is a gratifying working relationship between our clients and their dogs.
