Police K9 Supervisor Training

Police K9 Units are often one of the highest liability areas within any agency or department. If established and maintained properly, this liability can be greatly reduced along with increasing productivity and return on investment. Unfortunately, we often find that Police K9 unit managers, supervisors and administrators know far too little about the proper supervision of Police K9 teams. Therefore, we offer a variety of comprehensive programs for Police K9 supervisors and administrators that teach everything you need to know to be a successful Police K9 supervisor.

Our most popular program is our 3-day Police K9 Supervisor Course which covers all aspects of K9 unit management. This course discusses topics such as proper selection of dog and handler, proper deployment, effective allocation and utilization as well as liability and FLSA issues. Our three-day Police K9 Supervisor Course also includes a 200+ page manual that serves as a great reference for supervisors even after the course.
