With the emerging threat of terrorism posing increasing risks for both the government and private sectors, our specialised training services are now providing the opportunity for organisations to either establish a K9 capability or to significantly improve their existing K9 operational capacity.

We have a roster of canine law enforcement experts from Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe that are available assist our clients with cutting edge training methodology to ensure the skill level of our participant handlers are maximised.

Our canine law enforcement specialists will conduct a thorough Training Needs Analysis for every client and develop a training package tailored specifically to their requirements.

Listed below are testimonials from our satisfied clients…

MMJV is a large gold mine located at Hidden Valley in the Morobe Province of Papua New Guinea. Following a significant public order incident on the site in 2014, a decision was made to improve the skills of our Dog Security Unit. At this point we sought the services of Mick Goodwin and his team at Dog Force Australia. The service and professionalism we received from Dog Force Australia was exceptional. Mick and his team attended Hidden Valley and conducted a thorough assessment of our present capability and future requirements. A comprehensive training plan was prepared and delivered on site. Dog Force Australia was able to supply six fully trained security dogs and delivered handling training to 12 of our Dog Security team. The improvement in skill level of our handlers is exceptional. In addition to the handlers now being fully trained in public order and riot tactics, we now have the capability of using the dogs to track and locate trespassers. This has led to significant improvements to our security operations and had a marked improvement on theft related incidents in and around the mine site. As the Security Superintendent for MMJV, I can’t recommend the services of Dog Force Australia more highly. The trainers, Justin and Nathan were very professional who really know their stuff. We will definitely be using Dog Force to deliver our future Security Dog training programs. I would be more than happy to support any of the above comments in person should it assist future clients seeking the services of Dog Force Australia.

The Northern Territory Police Dog Operations Unit contracted Dog Force Australia to deliver the Police Dog Handlers Course – Detection Operations in Darwin. Dog Force Australia sourced and pre-trained three labradors on all the known narcotic odours to a very competent standard in preparation for the course. They also arranged for one of their UK based trainers, Colin Walker, to deliver the course. Colin’s professionalism and ability to mentor our novice handlers was exceptional. I was also impressed that Dog Force Australia is a Registered Training Organisation which allowed our handlers to receive nationally recognised Statements of Attainment. Our Unit now has two new handlers and three new Drug Detection Dogs that are already making a huge impact on illegal drugs in the Northern Territory.
