Harrison K-9®Security Services, LLC has been in the business of selling the European German Shepherd for over 38 years. This is 38 years of training, breeding, importing and working everyday. Not as a Military or Police facility, but as a company placing personal protection dogs in homes just like yours. We firmly believe there is a vast difference between a Military and Police dog and a family protector, both in personality and in temperament. Many Military and Police trainers train personal protection dogs on the side. ....Learn More About What Sets Harrison K-9® apart
We are a facility dedicated to the European German Shepherd, no other breed imported or trained, Harrison K-9 specializes in one breed, the best breed, for working, security, family companionship and loyalty. The German Shepherd has a reputation of being the best of the best. The German Shepherd is also more expensive to import and train, that’s why many facilities use the Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherd, Rottweiler and other similar breeds, because they cannot afford to import quality, pink-papered, Schutzhund titled German Shepherds and figure you as a regular non-dog trainer will not know you are getting considerably less than the best for your family. ....Learn What Sets Harrison K-9s apart
We have many different methods that have been put to the test in training and handling the German Shepherd. Our training staff is almost entirely female. A female training staff is utilized to make sure all of our dogs can be handled by you and your family. No large bulky Police/Military trained testosterone full men, barking out commands and slinging dogs around out here. Our staff handles with positive training and attention to each individual dogs personality. You can be assured your family can handle our dogs whether they are children or a family member that would otherwise be intimidated by a large dog. ...Learn More About Harrison K-9's Unique Training methods
All of our Harrison K-9®s are located here in USA; they are not some strange dog imported “for you” but unknown to the handler and sold to you in days of him arriving. We spend a minimum of three months evaluating, testing and training every dog we import from Europe. Why buy a dog you cannot see or even consider paying for a dog that is not in the country. If no one knows the dog that you are getting before it gets here, would you really want this dog around your family and friends? Wouldn't you feel safer with a dog that lives in a American home with our trained staff and has been around our staff’s family and friends, a dog that is used to hearing English spoken and use to an American Household? Are you really going to trust dealing with a company or individual in another country, one who probably does not care if you are satisfied with the dog or not because he knows you have no recourse if you have a problem. Everyone knows Americans treat their dogs different than other cultures; dogs are a member of our family and can be our best friend. Who is to say this is not a dog that has never seen the inside of a house, maybe it has grown up in a kennel and only gets out when it is time to work. A German Shepherd that is use to American noises, smells, homes and situations is much more comfortable than a German Shepherd thrown into a whole new world with nothing to compare it to, know the history of the dog you are getting and make sure he has been conditioned to American ways. ..Learn What Breeds Harrison K-9® imports
Anyone can be anything they want on the internet, with the advancements in technology today a home-based dog trainer can look like a top-notch company. Most of these “companies” don’t even list an address because they don’t want you to visit, they always want to bring the dog to you or meet you at a local park. They can call their facility top rated but the majority put their dogs off the ground in “in-door rabbit runs” to avoid having a full working staff to exercise, groom, train, clean-up after and love their dogs. The dogs rarely get out of the rabbit-run, except to do a little work, until they are sold. They buy cheap untitled dogs that Europeans are trying to dump and then try to turn them into high-dollar personal protection dogs. Of course they can make a profit; they have little or nothing invested in their product and nothing to lose.
Harrison K-9® Security Services, LLC is a multi-million dollar facility located on twenty-five acres in Aiken, South Carolina. We use over-sized kennels and all of our dogs get to go out and train and play everyday. We have half-acre turn out pens they run in daily and a full staff of professionals that take a dog home with them every night and socialize them around their own family and friends. Our dogs are imported from one of the top kennels in Germany and all dogs are raised in the home with families, not in kennels. We would never sell you a dog that we would not have in our own home.
