Pioneers in Excellence: Where Functional Protection Meets Family Harmony

At CPI, we pride ourselves on being pioneers of the industry, setting the gold standard for creating personal protection dogs that seamlessly integrate into family life while delivering unparalleled security. With thousands of dogs sold and delivered to families across the world, our commitment to excellence is evident in every facet of our ethos.

For over 30 years, CPI has been at the forefront of the protection dog industry, blazing a trail in crafting dogs that excel both in their protective duties and as cherished family members. We believe in complete off-leash control, anywhere, anytime, with a single command spoken in a pleasant tone – a feat that distinguishes our dogs. Regardless of the situation, whether it's a serene family gathering or a challenging environment, our dogs respond with unwavering obedience, embodying the perfect balance between protection and companionship.

Our dogs are not only obedient but also formidable protectors. They possess advanced biting and fighting skills, ensuring your safety and peace of mind. Our handler protection exercises, such as our renowned "Secure" program, make all the difference in preparing our dogs for real-world scenarios. With CPI, you're not just getting a protection dog; you're investing in a trusted guardian who can truly make a difference when it matters most.

When not providing protection, our dogs transform into amazing family members. They exhibit gentle and affectionate behaviors, becoming playmates for your children and loyal companions for the entire family. Their adaptability ensures they can comfortably switch between guardian and family mode, ensuring harmony and safety in your home.

At CPI, we are committed to creating protection dogs that are not only effective in their roles but also bring joy, love, and an undeniable sense of security to your family life.

A New Era

We are excited to usher in a new era of excellence at CPI. As of August 2022, we proudly announce a change in ownership, marking a significant milestone in our company's journey. The baton has been passed to Alex Bois, a visionary leader deeply committed to upholding the high standards of quality, innovation, real-world performance, and customer service that have defined CPI for over three decades. With Alex at the helm, you can anticipate an infusion of fresh energy, cutting-edge expertise, and next-generation technology – all while preserving the time-honored legacy of CPI's world-class training programs.

During the past 12 months, we have diligently operated under a veil of dedicated focus. This period of quiet dedication allowed us to seamlessly transition under new ownership and meticulously refine our vision and processes. It has been a time of introspection and reevaluation, ensuring that our commitment to excellence remains unwavering.

One of the most significant developments during this transformative year has been our headquarters' relocation. We've moved from the bustling streets of Boston, Massachusetts, to the vibrant city of Dallas, Texas. This move represents not only a change in geography but also symbolizes our renewed vigor, expanded capabilities, and readiness to embrace the future.

Throughout this period of transformation, our reach has extended far beyond national borders. We've crossed international boundaries and journeyed across countries to deliver our world-class protection dogs, forging invaluable relationships along the way. Our dedication to exceeding expectations and setting new benchmarks in the specialized domain of personal protection dogs remains unshaken.The future is bright, and we look forward to continuing our legacy of excellence under Alex Bois's leadership. Together with our loyal customers and partners, we embark on this exciting journey into a new era, where innovation, dedication, and unwavering commitment to our craft will continue to define CPI.
