Since 2003, we’ve proudly partnered with over 250 agencies globally and trained over 1000 veterans, delivering unparalleled training to thousands of students and their K9 counterparts.

Imagine the scent of a well-trained K9 honing in on its target, the sound of a handler’s firm but gentle command, and the sight of a perfectly synchronized team in action. Our commitment is reflected in our impressive track record, having certified over 650 K9 teams. Our rigorous, tested, and proven curriculums enhance performance and significantly reduce your liability. With Custom Canine Unlimited, you can trust that you will have the skills and confidence to excel in this industry.

Core Training Values

Each course is developed with a Core Value System to ensure that each dog and student is trained to apply what they learn at our facility in “real life”. These Core Values include:

  • Teaching a developed curriculum that is designed to maximize training time
  • Include a manual with the full details on training material
  • Provide a full warranty
  • Ensure record keeping of each course to reduce liability
  • The fill-in-the-blank test requires the student to learn the material
  • Practical exercises test each student in the field by uncovering problems in training

Reliability Program

Our Reliability Program has been developed over our many years of training K9 Teams. This Program attacks these issues in three ways:

  • Dog Selection: Selecting the proper dog for the task at hand is essential. The dog’s drive, characteristics, and health are vital elements of the process.
  • Dog Training: Based on science and experience, we set each dog up for success, and test each dog to uncover issues.
  • Handler Training: Knowledge must flow down the leash, not up it. Each handler is taught and tested in the skills required to succeed in the field.
