If you are new to the sport and you’re looking to increase your understanding of why some things work for some dogs and don’t work on others, you have found the right place.
If you are a handler that thinks you aren’t getting all the performance out of your own dog — that he is not being worked in a way that you think shows his full potential — you have found the right place.

If you are a training director, helping a group of people train, PronouncedK9 teaches you how to train all types of dogs, because you get all types of dogs.

For the first time ever, we are releasing PronouncedK9 logo wearables. Featuring the artwork of DJ Artistic Designs, the PronouncedK9 logo features an alert and focused German Shepherd. The PronouncedK9 Method promotes the training of working dogs that are balanced, strong, and pronounced – the art on these shirts represents this well.
With a few styles to choose from, these shirts will make great gifts for handlers and helpers alike. Choose from short and long sleeve T-shirts, sweatshirts with and without hoods, and a zip-up hooded sweatshirt. Full color screen printing on the back of the shirts, with white screen printing on the sleeve and shirt front.
We can only take orders until November 18 to have time to print and ship them before the holidays. Orders will ship the week of December 12, 2016.

Watch as this 4 month old German Shepherd puppy goes from bored and distracted to excited and engaged…over the course of 8 sessions in 4 weeks. By using the PronouncedK9 method to determine the puppy’s type, Brian Harvey is able to use the dog’s innate characteristics to achieve the desired results.
The PronouncedK9 method is centered around the concept that there are four basic drives that motivate protection dogs. Helpers using our training method will be taught how to approach a dog for the first time and provide a stimulus or trigger to test each of the four drives. If the method is used correctly, it is easy to see which type each dog is. The drive to which the dog shows the strongest natural response is that dog’s lead drive.
Many existing training methods have led helpers to believe that training in prey is the best approach for starting a puppy or inexperienced dog because it involves less stress. Following that same way of thinking, many people believe that training in defense is scary and much more stressful to the dog.
We all agree that in the beginning stages of training, the less stress we put on the dog, the better off we are. Where the PronouncedK9 method differs from this traditional thinking is our theory about what creates stress for each dog. PronouncedK9 trainers understand that not every dog thinks the same way, which means that different dogs are going to have different instinctual reactions to the stimuli we use in training; what is stressful to one dog is not necessarily stressful to another. Our method acknowledges these differences and teaches you how to approach each type of dog to get the desired reaction, instead of using one approach for every type.
Are you having trouble getting a dog to start or engage? Look no further! PronouncedK9 can provide you the step-by-step instruction to determine the dog’s type and how to use his strengths to train him. Read more about the Four Types and then join PronouncedK9 to start putting our training methods to work for you today! You will also see all of this puppy’s training sessions, as they are happening, and follow them going forward. Plus get training tips and advice on all IPO and schutzhund phases.

If you follow any discussions on-line regarding protection dog training or bite work, we are sure you came across video of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. This past week, video posted all over the internet showed protestors being met with ill-trained guard dogs and handlers. This incident sheds light on many of the problems that can be created by poor training practices. Here’s Brian’s take on the incident:
This week, Jim Alloway, president of the USCA, sent a notice out to all USCA Members making us aware of a movement toward a WUSV rule that imposes an international ban of the use of e-collars and possibly other training devices. You can read the memorandum here.
How did we get to this point?
Brian Harvey has a unique perspective on this, built on his 30 plus years of being active in the sport. Watch his video and please share your own experiences in the comments section below.
