Special-Dog-Center Schmidt - Certified Dog Training Center

Because of the lament about the increasing working dog misery by national and international K9 owning authorities, we have been making it our business to breed and train service dogs  for object and personal protection as well as for all special purposes (explosive detection, narcotics detection and special operations dogs and also tracking and rescue dogs) for the police, military, Federal Border Police, customs, regulatory offices and private security companies in both Germany and foreign countries.

The demand for completely trained and that’s why immediately fully operational dogs by K9 owning authorities is ever-growing. Reasons are the enormous time saving for the training and the absence of the dog teams during attending training courses. Thus they can save money and staff which will be completely available for their employer and ready for action at any time.

Because of the still insufficient working dog quality of the most dog breeds which are qualified for this, among the protection dog and special training we are dealing intensively with breeding of healthy and willing to work working dogs.

We are working together especially with K9 owning authorities (great acceptance of modern methods in training protection and detection dogs) from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands and meanwhile also from Qatar.

Tino Schmidt was a contestant in national and international service dog competitions (Swiss Open, Holte-Stuckenbrock, Hannover, Netherlands - KNPV…).
