Training Courses

Dog and handler training to both the Public and Private Security Sector

Training to the highest possible standard, we continually assess our methodology, techniques and technology to offer you the very best service and results.

Courses are held over varying periods within our training areas and tailor made to individual agency requirements - dependent on the specific requirements of the handler and dog team.

A target based company, our standards are extremely high, ensuring that only handlers who display the requisite abilities will pass; however, this does mean that inexperienced handlers are offered valuable opportunities for help and guidance in training and handling from people who teach and develop individual skills for team operational deployment.
