we train tactics
not just dogs
Training Since 1993
The founders of D-Tac K9, Gregg and Candace Tawney have over twenty five years of experience training police dogs. The trainers are all active members of law enforcement, so clients are getting the most current and up to date training methods, case law, and tactics. We are strong believers in scenario based training and testing both handlers and dogs under stressful conditions in order to prepare them for situations they will face on the street.
In addition, D-Tac K9 prides itself on providing a ratio of one trainer to five handlers within its training groups insuring personal attention to each K-9 handler. All of our trainers have been hand selected. Each trainer has been a prior handler and all of them share the same motivational training philosophy.
