Detection + Patrol


Whether you compete in canine or you rely on your K-9 partner for law enforcement detection, we are here to help.

At K-9 Defense, we utilize a foundational system based on science, backed by experience when creating obedience to odor with our detection dogs.


Through a self discovery system, our dogs become a reliable tool in detecting their target odors regardless of the distractions they face.


Odor detection is a fragile behavior requiring attention to detail in the learning process to create the most capable detection dog teams possible.

A full-spectrum detection training

Each aspect of our system, from obedience to detection, correlates with the other.


Our system of integrated canine communication builds the most reliable foundation of behavior possible in your dog, with the increased focus by the courts on handler queuing in detection work.


Our system of teaching odor detection allows you to be confident in your canine partner, knowing they are searching independently of your influence.


That is the definition of canine reliability!
