Our Training

Our training philosophy focuses on producing dogs that are custom-trained in the areas of advanced obedience, personal and executive protection, building and home searches, tracking, and other specialized skills. We produce a unique program, specifically tailored to meet every customer’s needs.


Defense & Protection

The protection and safety of you and your family are paramount to our mission. You never have to worry about leaving your family alone. We create real life situations in training your dog to ensure reliable reaction and response for your defense and protection. In addition to acting on your command, your dog will take initiative to confront any serious threat even if you are unable to command him to do so.

Pet & Friend


This is a key aspect of our program. A significant amount of our training focuses on molding your Crosstrainedk9 dog to be your obedient pet and reliable friend, as much as he is your protector. An aggressive dog is a liability to have around and a major source of stress for his owners. A dog that must be locked in a room every time you have visitors cannot defend you at all times. You need a social dog that can be around other dogs, children, elderly, delivery personnel, or anyone invited to your home. Your Crosstrainedk9 dog will be a perfect family member.

Guard & Deterrence


The one thing criminals fear the most is a well trained dog. Having a Crosstrainedk9 dog specifically trained for you, his owner, will afford you the best deterrent against crime and personal attack.

Home alarm systems can be disconnected, disarmed, or sabotaged. Our dogs are attentive and on guard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They make their presence known! Any criminal will think twice before entering your home or attacking you. Our dogs are loyal, obedient, and will protect you with their lives.

We house our dogs in our homes and train them in normal everyday settings and high traffic areas. They are socialized with children and elderly and handled by both men and women. This approach allows our customers to take their dogs anywhere. Our training program focuses on producing the perfect companion pet and a strong protection dog all in one.
