Training the canines of tomorrow is our forte here at Man-K9. The careful selection and training of canines for a variety of detection tasks has been the sole focus of our instructors since 1979. Our “Green Detection Dogs” are an alternative to conventional detection dogs that are already trained to sniff out things like drugs, explosives, or firearms.

What is a Green Detection Dog?

At Man-K9, we define a "Green Detection Dog" as one that possesses a strong drive to hunt for his/her favorite toy, socialization, environmental stability and necessary medical clearances to excel in detection tasks. However, these canines require the last phase of specialized training before they can do any kind of detection work, be it for drugs, explosives, search and rescue, or anything else. Green detection dogs still have a ways to go in their training to become reliable partners in crime prevention, despite having a strong hunt drive.

Unmatched Expertise in Canine Selection

If you’re looking for a selection process, look no further than us. The canines of Man-K9 are hand-picked for their innate curiosity, enthusiasm, and drive to hunt. The first step is our top-notch breeding program, which prioritizes breeds with a reputation for excellent detection and a high level of trainability. This includes:

  • Belgian Malinois
  • German Shepherd
  • Labrador
  • Retrievers
  • Pointers
  • Dutch Shepherds
  • Griffon

We have a large selection of male and female dogs available, spanning from one to four years old, to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our clients.

Comprehensive Foundational Training

To become a "Green Detection Dog," a dog must first complete rigorous basic hunt training. As part of this process, they will learn the fundamentals of search and reward by being trained to eagerly seek out a Kong toy in different settings. Our basic education program includes:

  • Box searches
  • Open area searches
  • Building interior searches
  • Vehicle interior searches
  • Vehicle exterior searches

Furthermore, to lay a solid groundwork for specialized training, we teach some of our K9s basic obedience.
