We can train the security dog and offer a K9 handler school to train the handler and any support staff with progressive, forward-thinking methods. Security teams can be certified by Conifer Canine, which can aid in court testimony. We offer some of the highest certification standards available. We believe that training standards, deployment standards, and certification standards should be constantly evolving and improving to become more realistic and seamlessly integrated on the street. Free annual re-certifications are included with any dog team that we train. Conifer Canine is recognized by the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.

For Police and Military Personnel
The security needs of our world are constantly changing. The bomb dog is a vital asset to the security needs of our day. Effective EDD teams are becoming more and more necessary. Our professional experience in training EDDs will be instrumental to your security team. We understand the need for a thorough training program which produces a reliable security dog. We provide realistic training that teaches both the dog and the handler how to act and react as a consistent K9 team. Handler training is available – for beginner or experienced handlers.
For Police, Border Patrol, Schools, and more!
Your canine team can be trained in effective drug interdiction training, unique to the needs of your agency. Our drug dog training is for real-world deployments. We train both dogs and the handler in proper techniques for solid engagements. Legal sniffs are an emphasis. These dogs can be detection-only dogs or dual purpose dogs which can apprehend suspects and/or protect the handler. Some of these can be trained in tracking as well.
& Suspect Apprehension
If desired, we can train security dogs to aid in suspect apprehension and/or handler protection. These dogs may help to stop a security breach from developing and reduce the number of injuries/casualties in the event of an attack or intrusion. The security dog also gives the handler an added layer of protection. The courts have established that a K9 team is a legal means of using non-lethal force.
Guard dogs need not be “man-eaters.” We understand that most agencies will want a dog/s that exhibits a balanced and stable temperament … that are neither looking to pick a fight nor running from a fight if its services are called upon.
