A Foundation Dog® is trained from birth and by the time the dog is 8-12 months old it has been fully trained in 50 elements that roll up into 4 basic functions: Tracking, Scent Detection, Advanced Obedience and Protection/Apprehension.

It takes, on average, 8-12 weeks to then finish the dog in the Top Tier K9 Finishing School for the buyers specific mission/needs. (Explosives/Bomb detection can take a bit longer).
