What our customers say:
In June, 2012, my agency purchased North Edge K9’s first trained police dog, Chase, a Belgian Malinois. Chase was well trained in all areas of patrol work, and it quickly showed once I certified him through the Academy. Chase has found numerous missing kids, evidence that was hidden, criminals who have fled from crimes and protected myself and other officers. I continued training on a weekly basis with Christian and certified Chase in narcotics. Since his certification he has been involved in numerous drug seizures big and small throughout the county I patrol in. Bottom line is that Christian is a dedicated, thoughtful, positive person and this is what makes him a great trainer; he goes above and beyond to figure a solution out for your K9 if he’s having an issue somewhere. He is constantly coming up with new training methods, better than the old ones. With no hesitation I would recommend North Edge K9 for your training needs and K9 selection.
