Why Man-K9?

We are true the professionals in the canine industry. 

Man-K9 – The True Professionals 

Man-K9 founder, Manuel Villanueva, is the only true professional dog trainer in San Diego County contracted by numerous law enforcement agencies. Man-K9 is the only company with an extensive (43 years) experience in San Diego County training Police and Protection dogs. Man-K9’s background is legitimate and we can provide evidence to prove our experience. Do not be fooled.

When is comes to police, protection and security dogs, only consider a company that has trained dogs to be proficient in real life scenarios. Our competitors have neither the knowledge nor experience in how to select or train a dog for real deployments.

This is why Law Enforcement Agencies throughout the United States use   Man-K9 dogs and services. Some of our clients:

  • Oceanside Police Department
  • Carlsbad Police Department
  • Chula Vista Police Department
  • National City Police Department
  • El Centro Police Department
  • Riverside Police Department
  • El Cajon Police Department
  • Huntington Beach Police Department  
  • Bakersfield Police Department
  • Department of Fish and Wildlife

And more!

The Competition: FALSE MARKETING

Be careful with false or deceptive marketing claims from other dog training businesses. One of the most common claims from the competition is that their trainers are or were Police k9 or Military Trainers. There is an enormous difference between a dog handler and a dog trainer. Many people are x-k9 handlers who only handled a dog or two in their careers while working in a Police department or in the Military and are now falsely introduced as dog trainers from the Military or Law enforcement. Handlers are not Trainers: they lack the experience of training hundreds of dogs, so do not be fooled.  If you call a company about such an advertisement, ask the following questions: 

  1. Was your trainer the head Trainer for the agency who certified the dogs and, if so, for which agencies and how many dogs did he or she personally trained (not handled) to be in service?
  2. Was your trainer the person responsible for Certifying the k9 team to be in street service?
  3. Is your trainer Certified as a Police K9 Trainer or was he Certified as a k9 handler?
  4. How many police dogs has your trainer personally trained, and  are they currently on street duty?

We can assure you that you can easily conduct a background check on these trainers and discover that most were only handlers with limited experience not Head Trainers. 

Another common false advertisement used by the competition is that their trainers worked with Police k9s. What exactly does this mean? Remember you are not a Police K9 trainer if you only have experience in the following:

  1. Agitating police dogs.
  2. Handling  green dogs in obedience in a police k9 kennel.
  3. Agitating protection dogs.
  4. Trained sports (Ring Sport, Shuzthund) dogs. A sport dog is not a Police k9
  5. Sold a dog which later was trained by Man-k9 to become a Certified Police k9 which then went on to  worked on the street.
  6. Have a relative that Trains Police k9. 
  7. Handling a police dog in the field. 
  8. Handling a military dog in the field
  9. Training protection dogs. 
  10. ****Disclaimer: Some former employees of Man-K9 claim that they worked with Police dogs. In reality, these former employees only learned a very low level of obedience and agitation and were not certified by Man-K9, nor Training Director Manuel Villanueva, as Police dog trainers or agitators. Please do not believe their claims. You can call our office for details.
