Police Dog Training

Single Purpose or Dual Purpose Training:

Your canine partner can be trained as a drug dog, bomb dog, firearms detection dog.  Target odors can vary according to the requirements of your department and the particular needs for your community.

Dual purpose dogs (those trained in both Patrol and Odor Detection) are typically German Shepherds or Malinois.  Other breeds or mixes can be considered, depending upon the needs of the department.  We train both dogs and handlers in proper techniques for solid engagements on the street.  Detection-only dogs (single purpose) can also be GSDs, Mals, Labs, Retrievers, or other breeds exhibiting the needed drives for the work at hand.  Some of these can be trained in tracking as well.
