Patrol Dog Program

We hold the belief that a patrol dog begins by mastering the fundamentals of socialization, maintaining environmental awareness, and possessing well-balanced drives.

We use industry standard training to produce the most highly trained canines possible. Our dogs are developed by former police canine handlers, active police canine handlers, and police officers that have achieved the highest ranks in law-enforcement.

The end result is a new team developed by realistic training, knowledge, and eagerness to help your department achieve its goals.

School Resource Program

We carefully select dogs with the characteristics needed to work within a school atmosphere. We put time into partnering the right K9 with the right handler. We take pride in being able to provide security, safety, and detection to school resource officers who may not otherwise be able to afford it. This program is not breed specific.

Training Classes

From training classes to developing individual K9s, we cover all your department’s training needs. We offer a wide array of classes geared towards helping your new K9 unit thrive in the field.

Why chose Sector K9 Foundation’s Patrol dog program

First and foremost, we are a nonprofit organization made up of police officers from the state of Texas.

We specialize our dog selection process by working one-on-one with each handler and our vendors to select the right dog for each handler.

We use our law-enforcement experience as K9 handlers to assist each department and select the correct dog.

After completion of our patrol dog handler course, each handler will have multiple contacts within the law-enforcement K9 profession to assist them throughout their career as a police officer. We are here to help you, not just train you!

This program helps support our mission and law-enforcement agencies around the country.
