Watchdog/Protection Training

The Experience and the Know How!

Hector Hernandez will train your dog, he will not supervise or allow anyone else to work your dog.

Hector L. Hernandez is an author, speaker, police K-9 instructor and professional dog trainer. His training methods were developed by him using dog and human body language. With over 20 years directly working with Police K9s Hector Hernandez knows what it takes to train a dog to be reliable when the need arises. He does not play tug of war with a sleeve with your dog and say it’s protection trained. His book titled “a Dog’s Bark” goes over it in detail, including how to handle, own and train a watchdog. His skill and forensic mind while training will make it look easy.

Training is tailored to each dog. NO group classes. Depending on your expectations, Hector Hernandez’s experience will determine if sessions are done at your home or at a neutral location. Each Session can last up to one hour with breaks in between.

Hector Hernandez assumes the risk and his experience minimizes any injury to himself. He is fully insured.
