Personal Protection Dogs are A1K9's Speciality

A1K9 personal protection dogs are generally supplied to families and individuals who, for a variety of reasons, wish to improve the personal security of themselves, their families and their homes. Our dogs then fulfil a dual role in that family: one of trusted family pet, whilst being a reliable and highly trained to deal with a security breach should its owner, home or family become threatened. Some of our personal protection dog clients are well known celebrities and many are business executives who live busy lives, our two decades of experience pioneering this niche industry enables us to effectively tailor our dogs training in a balanced way, to prepare these dogs not just to deal with modern day threats to family security but also to remain calm and attentive allowing them to better integrate into our clients' busy lives.

Having gauged our clients’ requirements following an in depth discussion, it is likely that we will be able to help in the selection of potential candidates from the many trained personal protection dogs that we have available. After carefully matching a dog to its new owner, our personalised customer service programme ensures every dog handover goes smoothly, no matter where in the world the new owner is based.

Whether you are seeking an obedient family pet, accredited security dog or highly trained personal protection dog, we will be able to assist. The foundation of any personal protection dog training is obedience and as such A1K9 has the experience to offer a vast array of dog obedience training solutions. This includes a residential dog obedience training programme, where customers can entrust their pets to us for a period of 4 – 5 weeks, during which time we will train their dog to a high standard of on and off lead obedience. Irrespective of breed, we achieve consistently good results; the only requirement is that your dog must be at least 10 months of age to be enrolled.

For those who live locally to our facilities, just outside Swansea, a vast array of group dog training classes are available, from puppy classes’ right up to an advanced level of obedience. These are very popular and enable people to come to our facilities and train and learn with their dog.

As an accredited training centre with the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and National Training Inspectorate for Professional Dog Users, we also offer handler training courses for security dog handlers working within the commercial security sector. We sometimes have a number of trained dogs available that maybe suitable for use within the commercial security sector and we can provide accreditation for security dog and handler teams that have reached the required standard.

Should you have any dog training related enquiries, please do not hesitate to give us a call, as one of our experienced team will usually be on hand to offer professional advice.
