International Police K9 Conferences, Custom & Private Seminars
“Your mission is clear cut and well defined. The set of philosophies you develop in order to achieve that mission will determine whether you make a beneficial contribution to the role police dogs play in modern law enforcement or whether you become a liability which undermines the good work of many men and women before you.”
- Bruce Jackson, Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, Washington
