Having worked law enforcement in several agencies, as a K-9 handler for 13 years in Washington State, I came across David Dorn and K9-STAC by word of mouth and started talking with them. Dave is highly knowledgeable and extremely helpful in the K9 field and brought a wealth of information together, along with a training program, tailor made to our needs. He was key in maneuvering through our needs as a private security company in developing exactly what we required, but still in compliance with POST and Washington State laws governing canine programs for departments and corporations. We will be training with him on July of 2016 for 27 days and will come through the other side ready to challenge the Washington State standard and get our certifications for private work. I would highly recommend K9-STAC to any agency or organization looking for one the best working dog(s) trainers in the US. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

I just wanted to say thank you for your informational talks and guidance. I have been a handler for a short time (1 year) and it has been the best choice I have ever made in my career. Every second has been a great time as well a healthy challenge. You allowing me to pick your brain has made me a better handler and more aware of what is needed to achieve the main goal, find narcotics in a fast and educated manner. To date, we (my K9 and I) have had many finds in custody from narcotics to paraphernalia. We have also competed in four Western States Police Canine Association narcotics trials. So far we have accomplished a fourth place vehicles (West Sac Law Dogs), second place vehicles (Dos Palos K9 competition) and second place over all narcotics (Dos Palos K9 competition). Each day we work on what we have learned and strive to learn more!

I have known Dave for approximately 3 years. I along with my Canine Partner Raider attended his handler course in 2011. My Canine Partner and I had practically no experience and very little confidence in our abilities. Taking the Handler class and attending weekly maintenance training has benefited us immensely. The handler course taught me everything from how to keep my home setup, leash control, theory behind how odor works, basic narcotic information and even the basic principles in canine first aid. I took all this information taught by this class and implemented it in my daily routine at work and in competition. My Canine partner and I have had huge success in the jail facility in which I work. We have also had success in competitions, placing first overall for the year in the Western States Police Canine Association trials in 2013. It has been beneficial and a privilege to have and been trained by Dave Dorn. Dave is a above great trainer and any new K-9 handler or even an experience handler would benefit from Dave's training. I would like to Thank Dave for all his help in making me and my K-9 partner great, Thank you.
