Imagine Complete
Off-Leash Control.

The CPI Difference

Complete off-leash control, anywhere, anytime, with a command said once in a pleasant tone regardless of the situation. Of course, viable protection through advance biting and fighting skills and handler protection exercises such as our “Secure” which make all the difference.

Purchasing a Protection Dog

Over the past 20+ years, we've found that there are four common questions among our clients. They want to know that they are buying the right dog, they want the right training, they need the right training and handling instruction, and that they have the right long term support.

On the delivery you will receive handling instruction that transfers performance from us to you, regardless of not having prior experience with dogs. We further ensure your long-term success by scheduling in advance remote in-home follow-up instruction through the use of video conferencing. Our video conferencing brings our Director of Training into your home for as short or as long a period as needed. He will be able to watch you with your dog, provide instruction as well as demonstrate with a dog in our training room – whatever changes in handling may be needed.

All of this instruction is without the expense of our trainers traveling to your home, nor any additional charge for the actual instruction.

Your Long-Term Satisfaction

Your family’s experience of your dog, both now and in the coming weeks, months and years has as much to do with support as it has to do with the caliber of dog, their training and the instruction that transfer performance from us to you.

Our commitment to supporting you and your family begins with fostering a culture of “extreme ownership” whether you are dealing with a kennel tech during a visit to CPI, a member of our training staff, your delivery trainer, or client care. Every member of our staff’s focus is to ensure your experience of your dog remains everything it can be, everything you hoped for, and a whole lot more.

from the founder

Our training is centered around one thing: functional results. That one idea drives everything we do. It’s not functional results for us as trainers. What we can get dogs to do for us isn’t important. Our focus is what you will be able to get your new dog to do for you, in your everyday life.

If your dog has impeccable manners, and you have complete off-leash control AND you can “turn on” your dog (instruct to show aggression) to anyone, anywhere and at any time, you have functional results. Anything less is settling for less. Why settle?

Functional results is our practical side. As trainers we care about each dog’s personal experience of us on a daily basis. How we train is just as important to us as the result we produce. What we have really created is a way for our dogs to understand themselves, their relationship with us and the world around them. The end result is dogs who are happy, enjoy life and are free spirited whether running free or obeying a command. For us, it doesn’t get any better than that. 

We have grown from starting the business with one employee to now six trainers, eight kennel techs, a full time dog walker, full time health care provider and two staff dedicated to client care.  A long way from being an artist whose art form is working with dogs.

Our commitment is to be to client care and long-term support what we are to dog training. Dedicating a senior trainer to our full-time client care office staff insures training related questions as well as remote training sessions are just a phone call away.
