Who We Are

Tri-State Canine Services is committed to providing quality canines and training that will exceed your expectations. Our Police K-9 training courses are approved by the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy (OPOTA). Our classes cover patrol, narcotics, cadaver and explosives detection. We offer police dogs for sale that have limited training or we offer our fully trained dogs. Tri-State Canine is committed to quality over quantity and this is shown through our customers. Why else would the FBI chose us to provide them their first dual purpose narcotic detection dog, we must be doing something right?

What Clients Have to Say

Kind words from some of the various organizations Tri-State Canine Services has worked with.

  • After stumbling in the beginning with another trainer, Tri-State Canine Services did an evaluation of K9 Faith and myself, Dave was able to help us to become a great team. Tri-State Canine Service provides a very professional service. I still ask Dave for pointers, guidance, and advice as K9 Faith and I try to better ourselves as a team. I am happy to call Dave and Shelly my mentors and great friends!
    N. Rob Minter Narcotics K-9 Detective, Cincinnati - Northern Kentucky Airport Police Department
  • Tri-State K9 has supplied Weirton Police(WV) with 4 dual and 1 single purpose K9’s. These teams have been certified through OPOTA and WVPCA. The teams always pass with ease and excel in scenario based training. We will continue to use Tri-State K9 because of their excellent customer service, K9s, and training.
    Lt. Scott Cook Weirton Police Dept. WV
  • The San Juan Police Department in Puerto Rico is very satisfied with the work of Tri-State Canine Services. Our canine unit was just recently created and their assistance in training our staff has been extremely vital in properly managing our operations. He has established a feeling of brotherhood, despite our location and language barriers. His commitment to our K9 unit has gone beyond just selling good dogs.
    Sgt. A. Rosa 5-919 San Juan Police Department, San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • I went to Tri-State Canine for a new Explosive/Patrol K9. I left with an awesome new partner (Kai) and new friends for life (Dave and Shelly). They take care of you like family while you are there and offer so much more than solid K9 training.
