Our Mission is to provide quality K9s & Puppies to protect and serve our nation!
With dealing with working dogs for over 20 years we know the importance of quality bloodlines and proper development. Nature and Nurture are two very important factors in developing k9s for specific needs. Here at SK9U We take a very delicate approach to this process to do our best to provide handlers with k9s that match their needs!
For our breeding program we start with quality & healthly proven K9s and pedigrees from hard old style Dutch Police Dogs (KNPV). We've imported well known KNPV PH1 stud dogs Diablo BRN 17949 (Sired by 2 time National champion Rudie II) & Brutus BRN 21926 (who took third in dutch Nationals object guard son of Axel from "Django, Max & Duco II" ). Our female Amy BRN 31392 (Line bred direct daughter to the famous National champion and top KNPV police dog producer Berry II) directly from Holland and have other high level competition titled European dogs in our Sallis' accomplished bloodline!
We Have A passion To Provide Real Working dogs to Support Our Nation!
Here at SK9U our passion is to provide people dogs that will aid in "Real Life Scenario" Security, Apprehension, Protection, Apprehension, Narcotics/bomb/fire detection, SAR dogs. We are not here to breed and train sport dogs. We want to provide dogs to support our nation and protect our families, homes, businesses and public areas. Our Nation is in need of protection/detection dogs that will face and thwart the many types of threats that us as Americans face every day. To us "the pedigree doesn't make the dog the dog makes the pedigree." This is why we preform extensive on going imprinting, training, and testing on all of our puppies and k-9s and do our best to put k-9s in their right homes. We won't sell an inexperienced handler a high caliber dog they can't handle to make a dollar. We do an extensive application process, and further verbal questioning procedure and protocol before any of our puppies and k-9s are placed.
When we here at SK9U test the abilities of a "Real Working Dog & Puppy" in our program we take many things into priority. The First we look at is the dogs we breed "overall genetic health" to add to many successful years of their progeny's services! Secondly does the dog have the right "Stability" to perform in real life situations? Third, does the dog exhibit the protection and courage instincts to protect their family pack members? Third does the dog have the body structure, confidence and strength to "Fight" against an assailant? Fourth does the Stud and Dam combination pass on these traits to their offspring? Thanks to the KNPV (Dutch Police) Program and the start of the Dutch Malinois Breed after World War II a lot of these genetics have been established and maintained for over 60 years! Please Read our "The KNPV Dutch Police dog for more specifics!" These dogs will usually have bigger heads, stronger jaw bones, stronger bodies, stable temperaments and a higher pain tolerance than a lot of their FCI counter parts.
A lot of KNPV dogs were going to police agencies after they passed their titling and they needed harder dogs to perform in real life training. Another small percent of K-9s (the cream of the crop) furthered their training on to Ph2's (Military Style dogs) and National Competitions. Our Sallis' bloodline is full of National Champions and Ph2 k-9s. (Berry II, Rudie II Hans pegge, Energidogs Ringo, and others). Yes, this can make these dogs hard to handle at times and will need "experienced handlers" and training. The same goes for any hard serious high caliber dog. In the end though when a dog has the ability to save its owners and partner’s life what is that worth to you? When you look at the training, the time, and the investment shouldn't it be worth every penny? Why would you even pay the half amount for a gun/dog that misfires, doesn't aim well, and over all just doesn't work in the time of a real drastic situation? Firearms like that won't even make it to the counter to be sold but, dogs will with or without papers. Papers do not show the dog’s temperament or abilities to work. Working titles do rather it be a hunting dog, agility dog, or protection dog. A "Show" dog and "Show" dog champions are only proven in "show" confirmation not dog’s working potential.
After dealing with a number of different breeds and some breeds focus mainly on "prey" drive. I realize this wasn't the answer to producing dogs at a high number with our carefully selected "wanted" genetics. Yes, there are other dogs of different breeds producing what we consider "Super Dogs" but, the lack of consistency is there. I mean if you have breeder selection tests over decades and those selection tests didn't really look deep into "the hardness & strength" of a breed and only just the drive, obedience, and foot tracking tests how can you have a consistent reproduction rate of "hardness & strength" qualities? Yes you can produce a lot of good detection dogs and sport dogs but, will the same dogs (and their progeny) that only trained with equipment, where the scenarios never changed or went outside the field, and where never really made to "fight" be able to fight and protect in a real life situation? The answer is easy "there's no way to know" if you don't take the time to simulate a real criminal or unwanted encounter. In a lot of sport training or any training that uses routinely the same approach the dog knows that the decoy will catch & drive the dog the same way every time. This isn't a fight it's a game to the dogs! These tests and genetics do not prove a dog’s ability to make a real protection dog! Doing "Real" life Home Protection tests and preparation with "Surprise & Fight" Scenarios are the way to test and improve dog’s abilities and genetics to preform and protect.
This is the reason here at SK9U we preform "Real Life Scenario" testing on all k-9s in our program. First and foremost practice increases a dog’s ability to perform and you as the owner will know if your dog has the abilities to protect! Each k9 will have their own learning rates, fight or flight instincts etc.
