Welcome to the Precision K9 family
Trained protection dogs are becoming more popular as a security measure. There are many companies that offer trained dogs for sale, but it takes more than just taking a dog through a crash course to prepare a family protection dog.
We love our families and care about their safety and have experienced the benefit of having a personal protection dog. Being able to provide a family or individual with an extra line of security is something we take seriously. To achieve this, we start with the understanding that every Precision K9 Protector, must first be family friendly and great with kids. Rather than training our dogs in a military, or law enforcement style facility, we do most of our training, in a home, incorporating the home environment and family situations into their training from day one.
This is why we’re able to offer our services to corporate executives, elite athletes, prominent families and well known celebrities as well as traditional families with real world security challenges. We pride ourselves on working side by side with your family, and promise to honor your privacy and security as we would our own.
We Hope You Never Need Your Precision K9 Protector
We really do. The types of situations these dogs are tasked with managing can be scary. Having an animal capable of, and trained to provide you with a strong line of defense is intimidating. This is why we don’t just train your dog to accept and love your family, we help your family adjust to their canine companion friend as well.
Through in-home training sessions, Precision K9 will work with you to integrate your new protector into your family environment and teach you everything you need to know to interact with these wonderful animals, whether as the family pet, or when putting them to work as an active line of defense against outside threats. We don’t just deliver your dog, we help make them a member of your family.
We are licensed in the state of Texas to sell and train protection dogs. What does this mean? We are technically a private security company and all of our employees must go thought an FBI background check.
Owner & Head Trainer – Jake Wright
The greatest joys of many childhoods involves having a canine around, or experiencing that surge of courage that your four legged companion brings when venturing into unknown territory. Their loyalty, bravery, empathy and fierce willingness to defend are why dogs are among my fondest childhood companions. From the time I was young, I spent a lot of my life with a dog at my side.
My passion was sparked 10 years ago while enlisted in the Marine corps, and had the opportunity to see highly trained dogs at work. I was constantly surprised by how capable these animals could be, and the number of tasks they were so well suited for.
From there my curiosity led me to start training my own dogs. I knew exactly what they would be capable of with the right training approach. So I gained as much knowledge on canine theory as I could. This gave me the ability to help family and friends to make their dogs more reliable and welcome members of their families as well. The work was so compelling that I decided to make it my career.
My first professional training experience, came with a franchise training company. Here I had the privilege of expanding my horizons, working with over a hundred dogs of different breeds and temperaments. Their personalities ranged from the fearful animals that would hardly look at me, to the aggressive. Working closely with the owners, I was able to help owners understand their pets and kept many dogs out of animal shelters by helping to correct behaviors that had made their relationships tense, at best.
This led me to start Precision K9 Work in 2014, where I was able to utilize my training philosophy. We help dog owners achieve results they never thought possible, which has helped Precision K9 Work reach clients in other states and countries. It has given my staff and myself the opportunity training and selling dogs to a variety of institutions from government agencies, law enforcement and celebrities. The specialized training required has given me opportunity to focus in on developing dogs for advanced obedience, detection, and training for personal protection.
Our extensive training has included:
- Basic obedience for pet dogs
- PSA (protection sports association), obedience and scenario based protection
- IGP(formaly schutzhund), a three part sport that includes tracking, obedience and protection phase
- Police K9
- Scent work
My continued education has included decoy camps and in person seminars with a variety of trainers and behaviorists that work in various disciplines. It is my firm belief that gaining a broad understanding of successful training and behavioral techniques allows me the flexibility to find methods and techniques that are best for each dog I work with.
My depth of experience has led me to develop a strong work ethic and broad range of techniques ideal in training personal protection dogs. My military background gives a level of patience and commitment in working with dogs and owners that I feel is essential to sustainable, successful training.
The Precision K9 approach is built around this thesis, no matter what you are training a dog to do, from staying in the yard and not peeing on the rug, competition, personal and family protection, the best approach uses a variety of techniques to develop a well rounded canine companion suited to their job, and a joy to live with. You must gain an understanding of how the dog thinks, in order to gain their trust and build the relationship required for a successful human/canine partnership.

What Customers Say
” We purchased a Level II family protection dog from Precision K9 Work in the summer of 2017. Jake and Nina delivered exactly what he said he would and exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with our purchase and with Jake and Nina.
This was our second protection dog – the first being a complete disaster of an experience. We originally purchased from another “reputable” trainer in the area that sold us an unstable, poorly trained, unhealthy dog. It was a terrible and miserable experience – that dog was a threat to our safety, our health and anyone else that walked into our house. It was so bad that we had to sue the trainer to get our money returned to us. They lost on every count. It was pure hell from beginning to end.
The reason I bring the first dog up is that it was the complete opposite with Jake and Nina and Precision K9 Work. He thoroughly understood what we wanted (but also what we had been through). I probably made Jake miserable in the number of questions that I asked and the rigorous effort I put into making sure that the prior experience did not repeat.
We have a family of 6 – with kids that ranged from 12-3yrs. It was important that we got a dog that was able to handle the chaos of a busy household but also do its job without attacking anything that walked into the house. The reason for this type of dog was threats made towards my life. At the time, I traveled a lot and could not be at home 100% of the time when a bad guy might show up.
As a whole, I can say that in my experience – the family protection dog is the hardest of all the protection dogs to successfully place. There is a delicate balance that a dog must carry. Jake took a lot of care to make sure that we had the right dog and that the dog’s off switch was very well established. He also raised the dog as a puppy in his home with his own family and had it very well socialized with other dogs plus, most importantly, kids. Additionally, the dog is healthy. We can take the dog almost anywhere and he is truly a family companion and protector. Jake and Nina worked with us before, during and after the delivery of the dog.
Bottom line – Jake is very trustworthy and we would not hesitate to recommend him, Nina and Precision K9 Work to friends and family for any type of K9 training. I was very selective in the process and set the bar high – they delivered. This recommendation is coming from a person that has first-hand experience with what to look for AND what not to look for in the family protection K9 experience. We have had 18 months experience before writing this review. He can use us as a reference anytime. We highly recommend. We would do it again. ” – Dustin Williamson (Austin, Tx)
