K9 Detection Service and Working Dog Breeder Info
Frequently asked questions
When will puppies be available?
Because we strive to maintain a very high quality breeding program with healthy and well-balanced dogs, we do not continuously have puppies for sale. We breed each bitch a minimum number of times to ensure that her physical and mental health are not negatively affected by continous pregnancy and welping.
Why are the puppies only available after 14 weeks?
We take our breeding program very seriously! Each puppy is a representation of the kind of working dog we are creating: a focused, hard-working, well-balanced, and driven member of a family.
Are there any guarantees included with each puppy?
We offer health and workability guarantees for each puppy that we sell. This includes:
What is included in the welping process at FireBrand?
All puppies are kept indoors and left with their mother for a gradual and stress-free weaning process between 7 and 8 weeks. They are socialized with cats, children, and visitors and have access to a large fenced outdoor play area and yard.
Who can hire a detection dog?
Any person, business, venue, or event can hire a detection dog and benefit from discreet control of explosives, guns, and narcotics. Our dogs are privately owned and can do anything from search a teenager's bedroom or car for paraphernalia to check luggage on cruise ships to patrol the event grounds at a festival. These dogs are amazing and focused workers and every penny your spend on a K9/Handler team is well spent.
How can I get my K9 on the working roster for FireBrand?
FireBrand accepts all trained and quality tested detection dogs for work. If your K-9 has completed an official training program and has passed their explosives, gun, or narcotics detection course, they can apply for a position with us here by going to the Detection Services page and following the link for working dog owners.
How much does it cost to hire a detection dog?
The broad answer is difficult and is based greatly on the type of detection, length of service, and expectation of involvement by the working dog and team. However, it is quite affordable considering the skill, time, and money it takes to train and work one of these K-9s effectively.
