Our dogs are the best in the field

Our dogs are almost exclusively European imports. In our experience, European working K9 lines are superior in terms of drive, conformation and temperament because of longstanding traditions and selection in breeding, health and training. We select from European breeders who have consistently produced well-rounded dogs and access a partner network of breeders and K9 handlers who are successful in various sport competitions such as IPO/Schutzhund, as well as active police and military K9 handlers.

Whether you are seeking piece of mind for your home or family or want to learn about protecting your business, we can help forge a solution you can count on. Contact us to learn how we can help you meet your goals.

What our customers say:

"My husband and I have had a great experience working with Christian and North Edge K9 on selecting and training the perfect family friendly security dog for our young family with two toddlers. We wanted a dog that was family friendly and that could socialize with our neighbors and their pets but also be able to be an effective security measure when my husband is away. Our dog is very easy going and mellow with our two active toddlers but can also be a very intimidating and capable force when we ask her to. In short, Christian is an expert in the training of Police K9s, family protection dogs, and service dogs. I highly recommend their services to family and friends!"
