National K9 Certification

Are you looking for a National K9 Certification that helps prove your reliability and compliments your deployment capabilities?

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. Don’t spend weeks preparing for accreditation; instead, certify under proven standards that coexist with your day-to-day function.

Build The Reliability of Your K9 Team

CCU National K9 Certification Bylaws are established based on Police K9 case law, industry standards, and the extensive experience of the police k9 professionals that consult on behalf of the reliability of the certification bylaws.

Each K9 Team (dog and handler) is evaluated based on the active CCU National K9 Certification Bylaws at the time of testing and on a pass/fail basis.

Benefits Of The CCU National K9 Certification

Since 2011 CCU National K9 Certification has proven reliability for over 450 K9 teams worldwide. K9 groups working under this K9 cert challenged in Federal, State, and Local courts across the United States for over a decade have resulted in zero cases lost due to these certification standards. Furthermore, these standards have been used in civil proceedings to protect the agency and canine. Reducing liability is a concern for all agencies, and this K9 certification is one vital way to help accomplish that.

Custom Canine Unlimited Recommends

each K9 Team working in a law enforcement capacity maintains an average of 4 hours of training per week and is certified yearly.

The police K9 certification has been around for over 50 years, with standards ranging in each established organization. But one thing is clear. Police dogs today should train continuously and be certified yearly. A K9 team that fails to empower and train will always raise questions about why the K9 Team would operate outside of industry standards. Suppose your K9 Team has not been certified within the last year, or you’re looking for a certification that will challenge your teams to train in a more realistic capacity, support your reliability, and provide resources for like-minded K9 handlers. In that case, the CCU National K9 Certification is what you need to implement into your K9 program.

CCU National K9 Certification Objectives:
