single-purpose-drug-dogK9 Solutions Center's single purpose police canines are trained on one set of odors, which could be narcotics, explosives, cadaver, or tracking. Our single purpose dogs have amazing focus, and will work though the most hostile enviroment. Our quaility control standards prove this fact.

K9 Solutions Center's Trainer, Jeff Turner, has many years of experience with service dogs including arson detection dogs, narcotic detection dogs, and dual purpose police service dogs. Jeff has also successfully created new K9 units for Police Departments, and assisted in the implementation of K9 units, as well as providing continuing and maintenance training. K9 Solutions Center sets a standard for training, which raises the quality of our dogs above most others.

K9 Solutions Center specializes in providing the most effective and reliable drug detector dogs available. Selection, training and certification standards for our detector dogs are uncompromising. The result is a high energy, self motivated detector dog that is capable of working longer, more efficiently and more reliably than "mass produced" dogs that are pushed through a rushed course using large quantity scent plants to stimulate their "hit" indication response.

Due to the fact we are not a huge training facility, and we do not have the overhead cost that the "mass produced" training centers have, we are usually able to provide a fully trained service dog at a far less cost than the others.We do not hold large classes, we spread them out, and most times the handler classes are less than 6 students. This allows each student to get much more "hands on" time, and more training for your money.If we ran a large class, it would simply be impossible to get each handler the training time they need.means you will not be sitting in a fancy classroom, you will be out tracking, working hides, etc.We offer very individualized training, andshould expect to work hard and long hours in your handler class.We make the training fun, but at thetime you will be expected to perform at a higher standard.
