Professional Trainers. Guaranteed Results.

Haz Othman

Head Trainer and Founder of Shield K9

I first started working dogs 10 years ago as a K9 handler for a private security company. Since that time, I have done behaviour modification, obedience, private consults, protection training and competition dog sports.

I have also selected, raised, imported and trained numerous dogs for various working applications.

I am of the opinion that you can never know to much. As such, I am always studying the latest in training theory and application.

I also regularly attend seminars held by world renown trainers and continue to push my dogs and training to ever higher levels.

When I first founded Shield K9, my intention was to focus primarily on working dogs.  However, after seeing many dogs come out of other training programs that were still out of control, aggressive, anxious and exhibiting dangerous behaviours, I decided it was time to offer an alternative for companion K9’s… a BALANCED training approach that actually works out in the real world around everyday stress and distractions.
