Meet Our Dogs

Meet Our Dogs


Different breeds, different colors, different personalities, but all have the same goal – to join the ranks of the elite working dogs who serve our country.

Graduates of our program are serving communities across the country in search and rescue, narcotics detection, explosives detection, patrol dogs, pest detection, cancer research and more. 

Each of our dogs is named in honor of a special canine or person who has made an impact on the world. The tradition started when we first opened our doors and dogs were named in tribute to the heroic search dogs of 9/11.
