About Our Security Dog Training Course

Why Have A Professionally Trained
Security Dog or Guard Dog?

An Investment In Canine Security Is An Integral Part Of A Holistic Security Strategy.

Uses Of A Trained Security K9 Team May Be:

  • Protecting executives or others needing an additional layer of security
  • Clearing an area of potential explosives or other contraband, including firearms
  • Used merely as a psychological deterrent to crime, even as crowd control
  • Sporting or other events where another level of defense will help to deter crime
  • Respond to active shooter situations and neutralize the threat
  • Legal deployments and successful engagements of a suspect
  • Crime prevention at warehouses, construction sites, etc

Global challenges in today’s world are constantly changing and seemingly increasing.  Utilization of security dogs represents an asset to security personnel which is non-lethal and very cost effective.  Using his amazing nose and keen sense of hearing, the dog can sniff out contraband, locate suspects, and also be a psychological deterrent by their presence at the scene of potential conflict.  If needed, the K9s speed and agility is helpful in pursuing fleeing suspects, without the use of deadly force.  Today’s security needs are constantly changing.  Keep up-to-date with a highly trained and maintained canine team!

Contact us to discuss your the particular needs of your institution/agency.  We can help your team to “think outside the box” in preparing for real-time security needs.  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.  Free annual re-certifications are included with any dog team that we train.  Conifer Canine is recognized by (endorsement not implied) the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.  Check out available dogs here.

K-9 Handler School

We offer first-class K-9 handler training courses for first-time handlers and/or experienced handlers who may need a refresher or update on new methods.  It is also a solid option for security supervisors and administrators.  Our K-9 handler school showcases effective detection methods, pitfalls to avoid, and development of confidence as a K-9 team.  These courses vary in length according to the training needs of your agency, typically two to six weeks. We do recommend more than 2 weeks for new handlers and new K-9 supervisors.  Lodging is available for those outside the immediate area.  Conifer Canine is recognized by the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy as a Training Provider for officers and support personnel.

Explosive Detection Dogs 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 invaluable 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 reliable K9 team.  Handler training is available – for beginner or experienced handlers.

Narcotics Detection Dogs For Police & Border Inspection

Your canine team can be trained in effective drug dog training and drug interdiction training, unique to the needs of your agency. We train both dogs and the handler in proper techniques for solid engagements in a real-world setting. Detection-only dogs can also be GSDs, Mals, or other breeds exhibiting the needed drives for the work at hand.  Some of these can be trained in tracking as well.

Handler Protection, Guard Dogs & 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 certify only dogs that exhibit a balanced and stable temperament that are neither looking to pick a fight nor running from a fight if his services are called upon.
