Providing police canines and handler training courses to law enforcement and private security contractors since 2001.
Tri-State Canine Services is owned and operated by Dave Blosser, a retired police canine handler in Northeast Ohio. Dave started his career with canines as a sports dog enthusiast in 1993. During that time, Dave became very involved with local law enforcement agencies in his surrounding area and served as a decoy during their monthly training. In 2001 Tri-State Canine Services was established after seeing many agencies receive low quality police canines. Dave knew his canines and training showed more superior than those kennels. This was proven in numerous police k9 competitions when Dave was selected as the only civilian competitor. Tri-State’s dogs placed from 4th to 1st among local and federal agencies in narcotic and explosive detection. Since then, Dave has been contracted as a guest instructor with other companies to oversee their training classes which involved new handlers, utilizing canines for Explosives, Narcotics, Cadaver and Patrol. Some of these students were with local police agencies, US Contractors and NSA.
Tri-State Canine has helped supply agencies with numerous canines and was the first company to establish a drug dog for the FBI in San Juan Puerto Rico. They continue to use Dave and his company today for additional canines. Tri-State Canine Services has helped local military for Presidential K9 sweeps and assists local shopping centers for K9 Deterrent Sweeps. Tri-State Canine has the knowledge and resources to assist any agency or facility needing canines. They offer onsite training at their 8,000 sq foot indoor facility. This location covers every aspect of canine training to assure students get plenty of hands on experience. Our off-site training allows students experience real life scenarios so they know what they may encounter when they return to duty. Our clients from across the United States shows testament that our training and canines is quality! We guarantee that the new student will be as successful as the last one we trained.
Dave Blosser has received canine certifications through many canine schools in the US and has studied under top KNPV trainers while visiting Europe. His company is certified through Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy, Ohio Pharmacy (OPOTA), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).
He has certified his canines through Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy, North American Police Work Dog Association and American Working Dog, of which he has held memberships.
Prior to his career in police work, Dave served as a member to sport dog clubs where he trained for the European dog sport, Schutzhund. The foundation and training he gained is what sets his experience apart from today’s typical police K-9 trainers. With the reputation gained he soon assisted many police agencies in school searches or called out to assist in locating evidence. Since 2001 he continues to oversea their monthly in-service K-9 training.
Dave has competed in Police Canine Competitions taking 1st place. He has contracted under leading US K-9 contractors where he assisted in overseeing their canines and student training. These students included handlers for NSA, Military, Special OPS, and US contractors.
At Tri-State Canine Services, Dave’s diverse experience allows K-9 handlers hands on training from one of the best in the business. He will guide handlers and their agency on selecting the best dog, Dave will continue to assist you personally long after the sale and your training is complete.
Tri-State Canine is known for its commitment to quality canines and their attention to detail in their training, why else would the FBI select us to provide their first narcotic detection dogs. Handlers have a long relationship after training and know they can contact us 24 hours a day if a problem should arise. If it is found a problem cannot be resolved over the phone Dave will see that additional training is covered to resolve the problem whether its dog or handler.
