K-9 Koncepts Training
Baltimore City Police History uses K9 Koncepts to train our current and all future Dogs
We looked everywhere, did our homework, and worked this like any police investigation. After all we were looking for someone to train a part of our family. Our dog, "Turk" is that important to us, and in the end, Baltimore County's K-9 Koncept was the best. We spoke with Bill Campbell, Bill is the Company's training director - finding answers to special problems that we may have with our dogs is what Bill does best. and Bill loves being busy, doing what he does best, and that is working with the dogs. Just keeping him busy is keeping him happy. He thinks of our dogs, the way he does his own, and with that; all Bill wants, is whatever is best for the dog. Bill's dog “Ajia” is a CD (Companion Dog), CDX (Companion Dog Excellent), Schutzhund 1 National Champion (2009), and Schutzhund 2. A pretty impressive resume!

It was first developed in Germany at the turn of the century as a comprehensive test of the German Shepherd dog to evaluate its suitability for breeding as a working dog.

In today's high tech world many companies often have what they call security systems for homes and businesses, however how often have you heard a burglar alarm go off unanswered for hours? From the point of intrusion and alarm, how long will it take police to arrive? A firearm for home protection of course is an option, but many (if not most) people would hesitate or not act at all when faced with the prospect of shooting another person. What are the laws in this regard, could you be charged with murder for shooting an intruder? Could an intruder reach your firearm and use it against you? Perhaps the old school style of home and personal protection is still the best. A personal security dog. A dog reacts immediately, no need to wait for help to arrive, it's already there. you can call the dog back if a mistake has been made. Try that with a bullet. You can stop the dog's attack when the perpetrator is subdued short of killing him.
