CCU National K9 Certification is built on the premise of displaying reliability while satisfying case law and K9 Industry Standards. Since 2009 this certification has aimed to prove reliability in K9 teams by setting a standard that does not separate certification, training, and deployment. We believe by removing the “song and dance” of certification and placing emphases on canine capabilities and handler decision making we are able to prove more reliable teams. Certification should not be an event that you train for, rather a minimum standard you train past.
CCU National K9 Certification will certify a team (dog and handler) in accordance with all standards set forth in Certification Bylaws. This certification meets or exceeds all national and international standards.
