A1K9 Family Protection Dogs News and Media
Angel is a compact, yet extremely capable, FCI registered, Malinois female that we imported from our colleagues in Holland. Angel joined us having already completed the KNPV PH1 program scoring top marks in her PH1 title and earning a place in the Dutch National Championships in which she was placed 13th. She was one of the youngest dogs in the championships and one of only a couple of females.
Now in training with us at A1K9 she is continuing to impress in all aspects of her work and without doubt she will graduate at our top level. Her obedience is as crisp as it gets, her protection work is nothing short of outstanding and she proves on a daily basis that size is not everything.
Angel would be a superb candidate for a client possibly with a male dog or as a Personal Protection / Family Protection dog that could due to her compact size accompany her owner out in the car, in the office, or anywhere they may wish to travel. She is a true pocket rocket and anybody stupid enough to try and test her resolve when protecting those she loves would very quickly regret it.
Certainly a young female that may well appeal to those looking for an alternative to a GSD, that is smaller in stature and yet still a mega capable family dog and protector.Read More...
Blaze is a very handsome cropped and docked, male Dobermann that we were lucky enough to source and import from one of our colleagues in Eastern Europe. It is very rare these days to find Dobermanns of this quality with the clear headedness, strong work ethic and the capability to switch seamlessly from chilling out by the fire to being fully committed and willing to protect.
Charles originally started out with Dobermanns nearly 40 years ago and has said that Blaze reminds him of the dogs of that era; calm, yet courageous in the extreme, which is indeed a compliment coming from a man who has seen and worked so many dogs over the years.
In terms of temperament, Blaze is very social with all people and is accepting of other dogs as long as they are respectful and don’t push the boundaries.
His work ethic is superb in that he aims to please and learns very quickly and he seems to like all aspects of training and excels in whatever he is being taught, whether that be the obedience or the protection work.
Blaze is without doubt one of the best if not the best Dobermann to have ever been trained at A1K9 and he will without any doubt graduate with distinction.
Blaze is an easy dog to handle and live with, being very controllable and biddable in all day to day situations and would be a great addition to any family who are looking for a great pet and serious protection dog in Dobermann form.
To say highly recommended would really be an understatement!!
We are so impressed with this boy, we have already secured his half-brother and are trying to buy his litter brother, both of whom are similarly talented and good looking too.Read More...
Here is something a little different!
Whilst we certainly accept that the German Shepherd is considered by many to be the ultimate working dog, there are other breeds that have representatives worthy of becoming A1K9 Executive or Family Protection Dogs too, and we make great efforts to find them!
A1K9 Quinn is a Malinois from top KNPV breeding, selected by us from our associates in Holland. He is s a truly capable dog, with impressive protection work and excellent obedience too.
Equally impressive is Quinn’s ability to switch off and chill, and we have rarely seen a Malinois this able to simply be a dog, relax and enjoy having his belly rubbed.
We recommend Quinn to the discerning client who has identified the need for a top-level protection dog who will fit in with any family dynamic whilst providing a very real solution to any security breach or threat to the family.
