Family Protection Dog – Cody

13th November 2018

A1K9 Family Protection Dog Cody is yet another stunning example of a show-line German Shepherd that is also capable of performing a working role, he was chosen and imported by us from the Czech Republic.
Cody has all the attributes that we look for when sourcing our dogs, a nice calm nature, great temperament and a serious attitude towards his work. Needless to say, he has sailed through his training and even exceeded our expectations, probably due to his willingness to learn new tasks and his desire to please.
Cody’s obedience is faultless and he can be easily handled by anyone. His protection work is strong and he is fully committed to dealing with any threat and is very controllable to the point that he could even be worked by a child. Cody’s ultimate goal in life is to please his handler and keep them safe.
Cody is an easy dog to live with, he is happy to fit into everyday life and to mix with dogs of all sizes and people of all ages. If you want to go for a 5 mile walk Cody would be more than happy to accompany you, equally, he is more than happy to sit quietly whilst you watch TV. You can take Cody anywhere and he just takes everything in his stride, he truly is the most affable and adaptable lad.
As an all-rounder, Cody certainly has the X factor and would be more than suitable for any family looking to add a highly trained protection dog to their family; giving them a fabulous pet and a very capable security asset too!

A1K9 Family protection dog Honey

Family Protection Dog – Honey

13th November 2018

Executive Level Family Protection Dog Honey is a truly stunning, traditional show line black and tan female, who has been imported by A1K9 from the Czech Republic.

Honey is a great example of an elegant show line female; beautifully marked and is a nice size. She certainly has what it takes to be a fabulous family protection dog and will certainly appeal to those who like the traditional black and tan colouring.
Honey is a great all-rounder with a faultless temperament and she is happy to socialise with everybody and everything. She has a laid back attitude who loves nothing more than to chill out with her family which would make her very suitable for clients with young children. Don’t let her soft side put you off though; Honey really packs a punch when it comes to her protection work and with no hesitation will step up to the mark in the event of unwanted intruders visiting, who would most certainly wish that they had picked a different family home to target!
Honey is a favourite here at A1K9, and as a result, she has earned a few nicknames by her trainer, ‘Chicken Nugget’ to name one. She really is a lovely dog who would make a fantastic addition to any family looking for a great pet and security upgrade in one.

A1K9 Family Protection Dog Karim Head

Family Protection Dog – Karim

27th August 2019

Karim is a very large and powerfully built male German Shepherd from the Czech Republic.

Bred from a long and successful line of working dogs, he epitomises the characteristics embodied in the very best of the line; strong, healthy and with a stable, predictable nature.
Karim is a very affectionate dog who enjoys lots of interaction with his family, especially children. He is very affable with other dogs of all breeds and is despite his size, very gentle with smaller dogs.

Throughout his training, Karim has impressed us with his ability to switch seamlessly from affable family friend, to fearsome family protector!

We’d like to see Karim settling in a family environment, where he’d be able to show all sides of his nature, while providing safety, security and peace of mind.

Family Protection Dog – Lucky

18th December 2017

Information about Family Protection Dog Lucky

A1K9 family protection dog Lucky is a large, dark sable male imported from top working line German Shepherd breeders in the Czech Republic.
Lucky‘s obedience is faultless and he could be termed a machine when it comes to his protection work, a seriously capable dog who would give any intruder /attacker more than a run for their money!
Top breeding, excellent innate instincts coupled with the highest levels of A1K9 training mean that you could certainly depend upon Lucky to ensure that your family and your property is safe in the paws of a very canny K9 security operative.
With his lovely temperament and affable character, Lucky is perfectly suited for any family with children and other dogs. Lucky loves his walks and really enjoys a ball game or two thrown in before returning home and chillaxing with the family. He is an incredibly well-balanced obedient pet who will fit in with daily family life but on the flip side, a super family protection dog that will defend to the end.
Take it from us, it will take more than a novice intruder to get past this dog and if they do have the misfortune to tangle with him, they certainly won’t be LUCKY!


Family Protection Dog – Pinda

12th June 2020

Pinda is yet another top-class working line, female German Shepherd dog we selected for further specialist A1K9 Family Protection dog training. Hailing from Eastern Europe, considered by many to be the last bastion of strong working dogs, Pinda embodies all that one would expect from such a heritage.


Stunning, feminine good looks, dark sable and with a superb head, one could say that Pinda is decorative as well as functional!

Pinda is very accepting of people of all ages (assuming they pose no threat to her family). She is very patient with small kids, enjoying all the fuss and cuddles that they bestow on her and she is even more pro children that want to engage in a game of tag or simply children that are happy to throw a ball for her.

She is incredibly tolerant of other dogs and has shown herself to be unfazed around the horses, donkeys, geese and chickens that we have here at A1K9.


All in all a great all-rounder, calm and collected in all situations and yet quick to act in defence if the situation dictates that course of action. She is highly recommended, a cracking family protection dog from A1K9, Europe’s leading supplier of dogs to discerning clients for over 25 years.


STOP PRESS: Pinda has been reserved by one of our highly valued returning clients, who are now the proud owner of their third A1K9. That speaks volumes!

She has an amazing temperament, is great around kids and other dogs and her enchanting character makes her popular with everyone she meets and spends time with.

All in all, a superbly bred and very capable girl with an infectious personality who will bring much joy to her future owners, whilst also being very capable of dissuading or disabling would be criminals who fancy their chances.

18th December 2017

Information about Family Protection Dog Tara

Family protection dog A1K9 Tara is a very pretty, compact, short coated bi-colour female German Shepherd from top Czech working lines.

Although Tara is quite a petite female, her protection work is certainly not compromised by her size as she really packs a punch and has proved both capable and quick when it comes to resolving any unwanted situation which requires her specialised A1K9 protection training.
When in pet mode, Tara is extremely sweet natured and enjoys lots of cuddles, interaction and play, making her especially suitable for a family with children or with other dogs who she will be quick to make friends with.
Throughout Tara’s training we have found her to be very willing and attentive and a real pleasure to train, have around and work with, as she is so eager to please and delighted to receive the praise for her efforts when she gets it right; which tends to be always!
Tara is certainly going to bring much joy and companionship to her future owners as well as doubling as a highly trained A1K9 home security system when needed.

The old saying never judge a book by it’s cover certainly applies to Tara!

A1K9 Bert trained Giant Schnauzer.

Family Protection Dog – Bert

14th November 2018

A1K9 family protection dog Bert, is a Giant Schnauzer with a super temperament and character that we were fortunate enough to have been able to source from one of the UK’s top breeders.
Bert is likely to appeal to those who might not be GSD fans or for those looking for a non moulting breed. Bert is certainly capable of affording tangible protection, has a huge physical presense but that has a softer look than most typical guarding breeds.
As a dog that doesn’t moult, he does require stripping or clipping at reasonably regular intervals and as you can see from his pictures, his coat can either be kept longer or shorter as is his owners preference.
Bert has sailed through his obedience training and is very adept at his protection work; with a growl and bark that seems to shake the room, however, when in pet mode this boy is one of the most affable chaps around, always ready for a pat and a cuddle.
He is content to play with the kids, interacts perfectly with other dogs and is so easy to handle, he has even worked for a four year old girl who was approximately half his weight.
If you are looking for a protection dog with a difference that will double as a very loyal family pet and companion, then Bert might just be the one for you.

Family protection dog Bina at A1K9

Family Protection Dog – Bina

14th November 2018

Bina is an imported Czech working line female, superb in every aspect, highly obedient and yet more capable than her size and cute character might lead you to believe.
This striking looking female is sable in colour, medium sized and very beautiful, with a super temperament and character. Bina is very easy to live with being perfectly happy to relax at home yet would jump at the chance of an outdoor adventure, as well as having a play with some other dogs! A perfect choice to live with a family with children, she loves nothing more than cuddles and play time!
Bina is a compact female but size is certainly not everything, as any unwanted intruder would soon find out as she is a very strong protector and would unquestionably deter or neutralise any potential threat to her family.
A remarkably loyal companion, Bina would be an absolute asset to any family, so if you are looking for a German Shepherd female who can adopt the role of being a sweet well rounded pet but with the ability to afford the family and home real protection then Bina is your girl!

A1K9 Dara Family Protection Dog Head 0034

Family Protection Dog – Dara

7th April 2018

Dara is a very pretty young, semi long coated solid black female German Shepherd, who is very capable and could be termed ‘Made to measure’ for a family environment. She could certainly be described as fun-loving, always ready for a game of ball, very happy to play with the kids and always eager to be involved in all the day to day family activities.
Some of our customers prefer a ‘low-key’ Executive Protection Dog, and Dara fits the bill nicely, with her compact size and slimmer frame, she almost looks too cute to do the job! Don’t be fooled though; looks can of course be deceiving, and inside her unassuming frame flows the blood of generations of selective breeding, breeding based on ability, not the show ring, and as a result she has the protective nature one would expect.
She is easily controllable, with fingertip obedience, super social, fun and when required territorial; all in all, a perfect addition to any family seeking a protection dog that can fly under the radar.
Like all of our top level A1K9 Executive Protection Dogs, Dara has been fully health tested and her hips and elbows have been x-rayed and certified as 0/0, the best available.

He is a well-built young dog, with a calm yet fun nature, a willingness to work and a natural desire to protect; he is everything that we look for in an A1K9 Family Protection Dog. Hasso has excelled in all aspects of the demanding training that we put into our Executive Level Protection Dogs, his obedience and protection work is outstanding and during his training, he has proven to be extremely eager to please his trainer scoring top marks for effort every time!
A real cuddle monster Hasso will certainly fit in with family life as he loves kids, mixes well with other dogs and would be more than happy to accompany the family on a day out but just as happy to be at home having some down time as long as there’s a cuddle or two thrown in!
Don’t be fooled though- as Hasso is able to turn on his impressive protection capability at a moment’s notice and if you are looking to heighten your security measures, look no further as Hasso is an awesome protector of his loved ones and would certainly deal with any unwanted visitors without giving it a second thought.

Sura is a happy and affectionate young dog, who loves spending time with people and children of all ages, she would be more than happy to play with the kids in the garden or to just chill out with you in an evening especially if there’s a few cuddles thrown in too! Whatever your day holds, she is happy to tag along. If you have other dogs, not a problem as Sura enjoys nothing more than making friends with both male and female canines.

Sura has sailed through all aspects of her training, her on and off lead obedience is top notch and her protection work is superb; she has a serious side when required and although she is fairly compact in size all we would say is woe betide the person who under estimates her, as they will certainly regret it.
Sura without a doubt made to measure for any family looking for a pet/family protector as she has the ability, temperament and character to fulfil her role of both pet and protector- all the ingredients to create an A1K9.

As with all A1K9 imported dogs, Sura has been fully health tested and has had her hips and elbows x-rayed and evaluated and certified as 0/0, the best available.

Family Protection Dog Tenno at A1K9

Family Protection Dog – Tenno

6th April 2018

A1K9 Family Protection Dog Tenno is a very capable and tough young male dog who has been selected and imported from our colleagues in the Czech Republic, who are top working line German Shepherd breeders.
A very handsome well-built dog, Tenno has an enormous head, and looks somewhat like a young black and tan bear, but that is where the cuteness ends. His appearance alone would deter all but the most determined, and stupid, criminals; however, those who would be stupid enough to try and test his abilities would quickly wish that they had given the idea a miss!
Tenno was raised in a family environment around young children, he is happy to interact with people of all ages and is super social around other dogs both males and females and he has a very impressive pedigree to match his intimidating, good looks.
As you would expect from an A1K9 Executive Level Family Protection Dog, Tenno’s obedience is crisp and fast in all situations and his protection work is solid irrespective of the level of threat that he might have to deal with. This dog is totally fearless when it comes to protecting those in his care and he is also quite territorial.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Tenno to any family looking to heighten their security in the knowledge that he would certainly keep them safe whilst also doubling as a loyal and trusted family pet.
As with all of the imported dogs at A1K9 Tenno has been fully health tested and his hips and elbows have been x-rayed certified as 0/0, the best available.
This is a serious protection dog and he is well on target to complete his training in the Summer time.
