A1K9 Family Protection Dogs News and Media
A1K9 Executive Family Protection Dog Champ! The name really does say it all- but one word to sum this dog up would be Outstanding, Champ is a very special dog indeed, we selected and imported him from the Czech Republic.
He is a compact and squarely built bicolour German Shepherd Dog from top Czech working line breeding. A very capable protection dog who has a very level temperament and character, a protective nature and is super territorial and would be perfect for protecting the most high risk of individuals or family homes.
He is one of our top dogs at A1K9 and from the word go; he really has excelled throughout his obedience and protection training, which is hardly surprising given that he had already achieved a ZVV3 title before being purchased by us. To put this into context, only 3-5 dogs per year achieve a ZVV3 title!
‘’Czech and Slovak (ZVV/SVV) title system is a utility dog system. More realistic and demanding on all levels as compared to the thousands of dogs that acquire a SchH3. Only 3 to 5 dog’s yearly attain the ZVV3 title. This title includes long, detailed tracking phases, full obedience and extensive protection on and off leash. In Obedience, heeling with turns and about turns are dictated by the judge, so you never know where or when you will turn.’’
On the flip side, Champ loves being around people and children and his softer side really shines through when he’s on the receiving end of a belly rub! He loves a stroll in the park and lots of walks and his more than happy to socialise with other dogs but his favourite pastime is playing ball. If he was human, he’d probably be a premiership footballer!
In a nutshell, Champ would be a very loyal companion that will offer a high level of protection for a client looking to really heighten their security. Size is not everything, if you think you want a huge dog, then come and see this one and you will be sure to change your mind! Champ may be compact in size however when in work mode this dog is devastatingly effective and would certainly prove to be a would be attackers/burglars worse nightmare.
If you want the best, look no further than Champ!
As you would expect from an A1K9 Executive Protection Dog, he has been fully health tested and his hips and elbows x-rayed and certified as 0/0, the best available.
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...
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.Read More...
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!
Executive level family protection dog Zanny, is a very beautiful, semi long coated female coming from Jinopo’s top working line breeding.
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.
With those cute looks and appealing eyes, one could easily be fooled into thinking that she was nothing more than a cuddly pet…. But this cuddly pet has been trained by us at A1K9 to do a job, that of keeping her family safe and she takes that role very seriously indeed and is good at it!
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.
Amo is a nicely marked, sable, short coated, German Shepherd male, imported by us from the Czech Republic.
Amo is a medium sized dog with a strong head, but just because he is not the biggest it certainly does not mean that he is not one to be reckoned with, as any unwanted visitor would soon find out!
During his time here at A1K9, Amo has completed all his training and proved he has a steady calm nature and great laid back personality, so would be well suited to any family.
Amo is very obedient and biddable,making him a very easy dog to live with. He will happily chill out in the living room with you or be just as content to accompany you on a long walk!
Amo gets along well with people of all ages and is very social until given reason not to be! He is however a very territorial dog so would naturally do a great job keeping his home and grounds safe under his watchful eye.
All in all- Amo would be a fantastic family pet as well as being the family’s personal bodyguard.
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.
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!
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.
Executive Level A1K9 Family Protection Dog Sura is a beautiful, sable colour female German Shepherd Dog who has been bred in and imported from the Czech Republic. She has such a sweet personality and during her training has become a firm favourite with the staff and trainers here at A1K9.
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.Read More...
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.
Executive level family protection dog Tina is a superb female from top Eastern European working bloodlines. She has now completed her training to be an Executive Level A1K9 Family Protection Dog and she is not one to miss!
Tina is sable in colour, looks very cute and cuddly and is a real sweetheart and her happy fun loving character makes her an ideal choice for a family with children as she loves nothing more than to play and have lots of fuss and fun. Again like all A1K9’s, Tina is very easy to live with, content just chilling out in front of the fire at home or just as happy to go for an energetic walk and enjoy the outdoors. Tina loves to play with other dogs big or small, so would definitely be a candidate for a family with existing dog or dogs. It’s fair to say that Tina has a really happy go lucky attitude to life and will fit in with whatever you choose to do, being happy to spend time with her human and canine pals.
Tina is quite compact in size, but don’t forget that here at A1K9 size is not everything as any unwanted intruder would soon find out! She is a strong protector and would deter and / or neutralise any potential threat to the family very swiftly and with great resolve.
Tina has crisp, sharp obedience and is easily handled; she loves to please and has a fabulous attitude to her work. She is a very bright lovable girl and a total joy to have around. Tina’s loyalty to her future family will be unfaltering and despite her feminine appearance and easy going nature, she is more than capable of protecting her loved ones in times of need.

Information about Griff
A1K9 Griff is a striking looking Bi colour, Czech bred, German Shepherd male who joined us from the Czech Republic in 2016 to start his extensive obedience and protection training. A large and imposing looking dog, who not only looks like he can do a job, he can! Griff is level headed and has a super social nature, mixing well with kids and adults alike, as well as being tolerant around other dogs of both sexes and livestock. Griff has two distinct sides to his personality, the fun loving family pet who enjoys cuddles and a game of ball and the fearless, steadfast protector whose prime concern is protecting those in his care. Griff’s defence is natural and unfaltering and is not borne out of sport style training but is innate, very real and he is a very worthy opponent to any would be adversary trying to breach the home or family security.
As with most of our dogs, Griff enjoys downtime chilling with the family and he has shown himself to be very patient and accommodating with younger members of the family, happy to play, roll around and have his belly tickled.
Griff is a great choice for a family with kids looking to greatly enhance their home security whilst incorporating a truly gentle pet who will without doubt prove to be a big hit with the whole family as well as friends and welcome visitors. The unwelcome ones will wish that they had just passed by without stopping!
