About our family & working breeds
Belgian Malinois
The smart, confident, and versatile Belgian Malinois is a world-class worker who forges an unbreakable bond with his human partner. To deny a Mal activity and the pleasure of your company is to deprive him of his very reasons for being.
Belgian Malinois make perfect home and personal protection canines, and are very popular choices for police dog work.

We socialize our Belgian Malinois residents from a very early age and focus on obedience and diligent excersize to keep their energy focused and temperaments well-rounded. Best for active individuals and families with older children. 
German Shepherd
Generally considered dogkind’s finest all-purpose worker, the German Shepherd Dog is a large, agile, muscular dog of noble character and high intelligence. Loyal, confident, courageous, and steady, the German Shepherd is truly a dog lover’s delight.

Shepherds' defining attribute is 
character: loyalty, courage, confidence, the ability to learn commands for many tasks, and the willingness to put their life on the line in defense of loved ones. German Shepherds will be gentle family pets and steadfast guardians.
DDR Shepherd
Also known as East German Shepherds, this breed has a distinctly sloped body and wider head. Their low conformation was bred to cover long distances, withstand harsh weather and terrain, with a lower risk of hip dysplasia. 

They are very loyal to both their adult and young family members. They consider themselves a part of your pack and will use their protective instincts to guard persons and home. This breed continues to work with police and military forces throughout the world using their intelligence and tracking skills. 
Black Russian Terrier
This brawny and graceful guard dog of the Siberian steppes boasts a tousled black coat, large bones, and well-developed muscles, creating a vibrant, flowing impression. The old expression “He moves well for a big guy” applies to this nimble-footed giant.

These majestic black beauties are highly intelligent and confident dogs who are relatively new and still a rare breed. They naturally live to protect a home or business, play with the family’s children, and excel in agility and obedience competition. BRT's are relatively quiet and virtually shedless.
A cross between the Weimaraner and Labrador, this is a great looking canine who is known for their loving, gentle, and devoted temperament. If you are in search of a furry friend who will always long to be at your side and who will be thrilled to participate in a variety of activities with you, this could be the right choice for you and your family.

Because the Weimador is a breed that is eager to please with high intelligence, training comes easily and they learn the ropes with fewer repetitions than other breeds when tackling new commands.

German Shepherd
Max is a driven GSD who would make a fantastic family protector. Handsome, attentive, balanced and very outgoing, he captures the hearts of everyone around! A graduate of our intermediate obedience program, he would be a great dog for the novice handler. Very well socialized, this friendly GSD is great with children.
German Shepherd
Very social, this short coat Czech German Shepherd Dog is well trained in off leash obedience and scent work. Highly scent driven, Quick loves to work for ball rewards, has great nerves, and an excellent hunt drive. This male GSD would make a great dual purpose K9 for any size department.
DDR German Shepherd
Kato has the inherited classic DDR broad head, wide muzzle, large bone and deep pigment. Kato is a scent driven dog who loves to find hidden objects for ball reward.  His pedigree is littered with several Grand Champion titles on both sides, His dam is the one of the youngest to earn the AKC TD Tracking Title at just 6 months old.
This 8 month old female Chocolate English Weimador is very social and intuitive. She had completed basic obedience, is public access ready, and has begun task training for PTSD service dog work. Liberty has higher energy than her brother, Joker, but has proven great focus and picks up new commands with very few repetitions. 
Don't let his name fool you, Joker is anything but a goof-off. Although very affectionate and more mellow than his higher energy sister, Liberty, Joker proved to be the top of his class in basic obedience. His attentiveness and eager-to-please attitude has propelled him into off-leash training and even  service dog task training.  
Black Russian Terrier
An Academy favorite, Isabelle has a grace and quiet intelligence that impresses all who work with her. Her quick graduation of our basic obedience program has mirrored her physical growth. She has doubled in size in just the last 4 months, and at just 1 year old, we are looking forward to watching her fill out her breed's massive and beautiful show potential!
Belgian Malinois
This 10 month old male Mal has shown amazing protection canine potential. Bite driven and focused, he thrives on the approval of his handler and has the stamina to work day in and day out without tiring. Bear is well socialized and with daily stimulation and training will fit into any household environment with or without children and other pets.
Belgian Malinois
Proudly whelped and raised here at the Academy, this 18 month old female is a shining example of what early socialization and training can do for a high energy breed. A recent graduate of our intermediate obedience and protection program, loyal and attentive Unity is making leaps and bounds in agility and advanced obedience. 
Belgian Malinois
This green 10 month old male Mal is a joyful presence at our facility. Eager to please and always happy, Max would make a fantastic family dog with a consitant training regime and daily stimulation. We would like to see this working dog go to an active household with a handler who is dedicated to taking advantage of his full potential.
