“A good police apprehension dog should not be fixated on equipment. It should apprehend a suspect on the street. A good police canine should be trusted to do their job in the field” IronHeart Director of Training Matt Skogen
The IronHeart Training Center prides itself in locating some of the finest dogs available for Dual Purpose Police Dogs or Police Apprehension Dogs. After numerous selection tests we find dogs that will not be fixated on equipment. Our goal is a quality police service dog that will function at the highest level and provide a very trustworthy resource under sometimes fast and evolving conditions.
We spend the time to ensure all of our dogs are exposed to felony car stops, building and area search, muzzle fight and searches, pat down of suspects, prisoner escorts, advanced obedience, tactical obedience, courtroom testimony, report writing for patrol dog handlers and many other topics tailored toward insulating your agency from liability. We can always customize the ideal dog for your department and work toward that end.
At the conclusion of training we always allow the team to test through a third party, Nationally Recognized Certifying Entity.
At IronHeart we may not be the biggest company providing police dogs, but we take great pride in every dog team we produce.
