    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.
