Dave Blosser, Owner/Trainer
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.
