Black Ops K9 breeds and trains elite personal protection dogs for civilians, as well as K9 dogs that law enforcement officers use for police work. These dogs are not your everyday backyard pets. Ty Garmany, owner and master K9 instructor, trains each personal protection dog for more than 1,000 hours.
He starts training them as puppies and then releases them when they turn 1. Specific areas of training include distraction skills (gun fire, voices), advanced on- and off-leash obedience, bite work, socialization skills, tracking, and building searches. The dogs are certified to go on airlines and travel with owners to different countries.
