TCK9 is committed to Quality, NOT quantity
, putting your needs in a working dog ahead of our convenience. Our dogs are
selected and trained for your unique requirements. TCK9 selects and trains dogs for service – not sport. You don't
pay for titles only real world capability. At TCK9, we offer K9 training for the 21st century.
We are proud of our reputation based on our head trainer's 15 + years of experience working with and training canines. Mike
Colton has worked with dogs here on the Treasure Coast, across the state, nationally and internationally. He is trained and
certified by the State of Florida as a Police K-9 team trainer, the National Police Canine Association as an instructor and
evaluator of Police K-9s, the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as an explosives detection
K-9 evaluator and through Penn Foster Career School as a companion dog obedience instructor. He has been certified by
the AKC as a Canine Good Citizen evaluator.
TCK9 is a family run, home based incorporation, located on the beautiful Treasure Coast in southeast Florida. We incorporate our dogs into our family and expose them to other dogs, small and large animals, and children. We train in a wide variety of locations to prepare your dog to work wherever you need.
We use positive and encouraging means of training based on an understanding of canine behavior with very little reliance on “old school” compulsive methods. Our dogs are happy and willing to work, not forced to.
Mike has worked with a variety of large breeds including German Shepherd Dogs, Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherd, Rottweiler, Doberman Pincher, and Giant Schnauzer, to name a few.
Mike has personally worked three different police service dogs, two different breeds, from three different countries, and three different backgrounds all with indisputable success. Let Mike at TCK9 show you how to get the most out of your Police Service Dog, Police K9 Unit or Personal Protection Dog today.
