Andy Hanellin - Master Dog Trainer

Let me tell you a little about me and my history as a protection dog trainer.

It started with a home invasion…

When I was a young man in my 20s, I became the victim of a home invasion. A robber broke into my home and, as if I had been raped, I felt violated. I decided at that moment I would never be in that situation again. Nor, would I ever allow any member of my family to have to experience such a horrible event. I immediately began a new career as a dog trainer with a goal of providing both individuals and families a means of constant protection.

Thirty years later…

Flash forward 30 years… I am now a nationally recognized Master Dog Trainer, a qualified AKC instructor, a certified expert in K-9 law, and a qualified expert witness for canine-related court cases. I come with a personal pedigree in protection dog training, narcotics and explosive detection dog training, and training my client’s own dogs in off-leash obedience. Over the years, I?have provided protection dogs for NFL players and their families, NASCAR drivers / team members and their families, executives, celebrities, and individuals just like you. I have appeared on national television as an expert guest on IT?S ME OR THE DOG.

Finding the perfect dog for you…

Please understand that I?m not flashing shiny credentials or name-dropping to impress you. I?m simply conveying that my expertise is pairing the right dog with the right person or family, regardless of social status or need for privacy. I will find the perfect dog for you, your family, your children and your lifestyle. One thing I emphasize with all potential clients is that you are not purchasing a dog to protect your family, you are acquiring a new member of your family. Your dog will be a functioning member of your family that travels with you, stays with you, watches out for you, and loves you and your family members unconditionally.

Once we meet and I get to know you and your family’s needs for protection dog, I will be able to pair you with the perfect new canine family member.

If I may answer any questions, or be of service in any way, please feel free to contact me right away.
