Once a K9 and Handler are selected through our in-house selection process, they attend Law Enforcement training specific to their respective odor (Explosive, Firearm, Narcotics Detection). All our K9 Teams begin their odor training on real or “live” source odor. We do not imprint on any pseudo odor. After successfully completing their detection training they are certified by the California Narcotic Canine Association and re-certify yearly.

After certification the training truly begins. We require our K9 Teams to train to Nation Police K9 training standards which in include daily, weekly, and monthly team training.

Our handlers are selected from mostly a Law Enforcement or Military background. This gives our handlers the relevant experience to integrate seamlessly into your security program and work closely with you.
