K9Research & Training Complex

Synergizing The Lab & The Field

Set on 520 acres in Iowa, The K9Sensus Education and Research Complex (ERC) provides extensive opportunities for training. Whether it be night operations or trainer interaction with a variety of animal species, the site will expand trainers’ understanding of learning processes and behavior.

Our Great Honor

It is our great honor at K9Sensus to provide the highest caliber education for working dog trainers, so that they may give their working dog companions the safest, most compassionate, skills-appropriate experiences in the field. We relentlessly purse elite opportunities for realistic scenarios, resulting in teams fluent and ready to respond at a moment’s notice.

 

Plans for the development of the K9Sensus ERC are complete (see architectural renderings below). We now possess both the land and the staff to bring it to life. The K9Sensus ERC will be the first of its kind in the world, environmentally and fiscally sustainable, with flexible design integrations for multidisciplinary learning environments.

Our research-based education programs are deeply rooted in the principles of Marian and Keller Breland, whose groundbreaking work (inspired by BF Skinner) contributed both the scientific method and compassionate practice to the field of animal behavior.

Please join us in building a state-of-the-art facility that will enrich the lives of working dogs and provide training that is unparalleled in the industry.

You Can Help

Training the human end of the leash requires specific and complex facilities. Once completed, the K9Sensus Education and Research Complex  will be the first of its kind in the world, environmentally and fiscally sustainable, with flexible design integrations for multidisciplinary learning environments. This facility will allow us to consistently replicate the environments that working dogs will navigate in the field, thus providing them with the optimal opportunity to gain life-saving, seizure and recovery skills that make them heroes when they’re called to duty.
