Classes, Courses, Programs for all Levels

Custom Canine Unlimited develops K9 Classes, K9 courses, and working dog programs for the specific needs of our clients. We have amassed a lineup to meet the particular needs of law enforcement, the U.S. Military, U.S. Veterans, and Civilians. We aim to minimize downtime, maximize efficiency, and build reliability with each of our K9 Classes, K9 Courses, and working dog programs.

Since 2007, Custom Canine Unlimited has used the experience of our trainers, staff, and Subject matter experts to develop courses that meet the specific needs of law enforcement, the U.S. Military, U.S. Veterans, and Civilians. Our teams have worked with dogs in each area while we develop classes, courses, and programs. We never deliver training; we do not have personal experience.

Working and training in the K9 industry for over 20 years worldwide gives us the knowledge and experience necessary to build the best K9 Classes, K9 courses, and working dog programs worldwide. We use this experience and our extensive research and development to continue evolving. We closely monitor each element of every K9 Class, K9 course, and working dog program throughout its life. This system of oversite means we are constantly making adjustments to ensure we deliver with minimal downtime, maximum efficiency, and ultimate reliability.

CCU National K9 Certification

CCU National K9 Certification is a set of minimum K9 standards established to test the reliability of a Police K9 team, Security Working Dog Team, or other K9 Team that must maintain an established standard of control and reliability. This police k9 national certification sets a minimum standard that complements deployment standards rather than contradicts them.

Dog Training Evaluation

Contrary to what you may have been told or what another company may try to sell you, not all dogs can be trained in the areas you wish or within the timeframe you think.  With this in mind we require a “No Obligation” Dog Training Evaluation for each dog an owner may be looking into having trained for a specific purpose. The best results will come with training each dog within their true capabilities.
