Awesome facility, professional and experienced trainers, the dog I adopted is a high drive and an awesome k9. I can’t wait to get certified with him, so he can do what he does best! Thanks, VWK9

These guys rock. Handlers and K9s alike, they’ve earned the right to be called the best. They ensure each K9 gets retired properly as well. Top notch.

Well worth more than 5 stars! I traveled from St. Louis Missouri to Anniston Alabama to train and pick up a new partner. What an awesome company and fantastic employees. Everyone was great! They all welcomed me. The vapor wake training I was a part of was excellent! The trainers was very knowledgable and always willing to help you! I highly recommend VWK9! Thanks, VWK9!!!

VWK9 Academy Facilities

As soon as a litter is born, the puppies’ training begins. Over the first 6-12 months, the future Vapor Detection dogs go through extensive social and environmental raising, supervised by the Canine Performance Sciences staff. Puppies are exposed to a variety of stimuli and environments in order to prepare them to work in loud, distracting, and crowded environments without losing focus.
