new k9 for our department

Hello I am helping our dept. look for our next k9. They are wanting a drug detection dog and hopefully I can talk them into tracking as well. My question is does any one know of any great police k9 kennels...I was looking at storm dog training website and I have heard great reviews on them. Please Help!!!!

Thanks

Honestly, no real idea on this, but have you tried contacting local departments with k9 units to see where their dogs came from?

obviously you can find one of the main line breeders domestically and internationally that specialize in service dogs. but like ^^ said contact other departments locally to see where they got theirs

Are you looking to find a fully trained dog? IF so, what type of training? Apprehension, trailing, drug finding, etc.?

Do you want a young dog that is partially trained and your department will pay to send it to finish the training?

Are you thinking of getting a 100% UNtrained dog and train it yourself?

BIG differences in where you will go to find a dog depending on what you are looking for?

Depends where you're located. In NJ we have a handful of K9 trainers that also breed. You won't be able to purchase just any GSD. You need a dog bred specifically with working lines. I would locate a local K9 or Schutzhund trainer and tell them what you are looking for. They may be able to sell you a fully trained dog, or if you choose to use them to train your K9, they may be able to help you select your puppy. If you are unable to find a trainer on your own, contact other state police departments with K9 units and request the information for their trainer.

Good luck!

Are you looking for a green dog or a fully trained dog? Do you need a handler school?
