What dog breeds does Black Ops K9 offer?

Black Ops K9 trains two dog breeds: German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. Both breeds have a high sense of responsibility with high work ethics. Most importantly, they bring a comforting sense of security to your home and the companionship of a beloved pet.

All dogs at Black Ops K9 are imported bloodline from East Germany, the part of the country that focuses more on a breed’s work ethic than appearance. Dogs from West Germany are bred as show dogs. Each dog goes through extensive health testing exams to ensure they are as healthy as can be before being transferred to their forever home.

What are the perks of having a Black Ops K9 for personal protection?

Many people carry firearms outside the home as a means of personal protection. However, a highly trained canine can offer advantages over a handgun. First, people using a gun have to be proficient at using it. In a high-stress situation, being ineffective with a firearm is a real possibility for people who are untrained. In fact, during his years in law enforcement, Ty has seen police officers fire 40 rounds at a bad guy and only hit with one or two shots. Also, using deadly force with a firearm can create unwanted and time-consuming legal issues. Conversely, a protection dog can provide non-lethal force. Finally, in some cases, a firearm can be taken and used against you by a perpetrator. A trained canine cannot be taken from you and used against you.
