GAK9 Dogs For Sale

Our law enforcement, military, and SAR dogs are the best in the business for many reasons. First and foremost, we are there from the beginning to the end on the breeding process. Our pups come from meticulously managed lines from the top breeders in the Country. We hand select after careful testing only the best prospects with particular attention to future work in scent detection and tracking/ trailing and nobody chooses puppies like we do. Once we choose a puppy, we start their training immediately, at 7 weeks of age! Why? It is quite simple, puppies immersed in a training program become instinctively responsive to the job. They do the work because they don’t know how to do anything else. It is their sole focus in life….work! Our dogs are the best at what they do and always will be because we spend the time to make it so. We choose and train your pup as if it was our own. When you get your dog it will not be a “green” young adult, it will be a fully functioning college graduate! TTTK9, when only the best K9 will do!

 

Bloodhound Program

Our bloodhound program is the same as our patrol dog program and the cost for a young adult trained from puppy-hood including health care, training, and certification is similar to any of our patrol dogs. Take home age is between 10 and 12 months old. We offer a health guarantee out to two years. We also offer complete handler courses with certification in 40, 80, and 120 hour programs in a “board & train” environment. Handlers when picking up their hounds, stay at our facility in private handler’s quarters.

Law Enforcement Bloodhound Sales Historically:

  • Bloodhounds have never really been treated like Police German Shepherds or Malinois, (GSD, Mal), from a marketing perspective and have often been freebies or “cheap” in many circles. It is also because of this philosophy that many bloodhounds do not have much of the drive and lack of fear that their patrol K9 cousins have because breeding for these qualities is so uncommon in the bloodhound world. The common denominator in the vast majority of bloodhound breeding is how the dog will look, which goes back to the show ring. We are changing that. We know what a driven, fearless hound look like. We also know what a very good working hound does. Work first, looks second and second best does not cut it when missing kids are involved.

What We Expect:

Our Bloodhounds will be tighter skinned, relatively slender, faster, more agile, more orthopedic-ally sound, and have greater stamina right out of the box. We are doing away with the huge, baggy red exposed eye, slow and fearful hounds that are so prevalent today. The show ring is irrelevant in our world; looks do not matter. We are working on true manhunter lines, we hope are second to none. We want hounds that can do what a Malinois or GSD does on the obstacle course and run for ten miles without falling apart. We want a bloodhound when experiencing unusual things, noises, or sudden surprises does not shrink from its role as a hunter but eagerly accepts all challenges. We also want a hound that has the want and desire to truly work for a human partner. These dogs will not be for someone who wants a pet because there will be too much going on upstairs.

What You Will Get From Us:

  • The model for our pups from a drive and energy standpoint will be their Malinois and GSD counterparts. That level of intensity is what can make or break a cold, hard case. We strive for breeding of hounds that will not quit and will die trying. If you have watched our GSD puppy trails then you will see what we will expect from our 13 week old hound pups: 3-400 yard trails with the person completely hidden at the end, pup working at a sprint, not giving up when turns are blown,self correcting, and not distracted. This is normally not possible at this age. However, it is what selective breeding for trailing produces. When you take that drive, retention, and tenacity and place it in a hound nose, you will have a hunting machine that will be unrivaled.
  • When you take your hound back to the department it will be pre-trained and certified out to our intermediate trailing level. If you pass our handler’s course certification than your hound will be ready to work real cases as soon as you take him or her home.

Bloodhound Selection Process

Puppies For Sale Without Training

Thank you for your interest in the finest manhunters in the world. Our goal has been and will always be to produce working dogs first. Appearance is not relevant but health and workability are. We are looking for dogs free from medical issues, that are longer lived, and work much better than the average bloodhound. Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of bloodhounds around the world are not bred for work. Rather, they are bred for looks and show. This has been the standard for the last 75 years as show dogs slowly replaced working lines. Show dogs, though beautiful, are not necessarily a good trailing dog option. Just because it is a bloodhound does not mean that it will work. This is a misconception fueled by the media and breed fanciers. Real working dog lines have dogs on the street with lots of finds under their belts. Ours may not enter the model runway but they will run criminals into the dirt. We guarantee it.

We believe that working bloodhounds should be smaller of stature, structurally sound, lighter in weight, tighter of skin, with clear eyes. Our dogs are athletic and have the ability to run long distances and negotiate obstacles that other larger examples of the breed normally may not. The true American manhunters pre-1900 were not really big dogs like what you might see on the Internet today. In many ways, some had little similarity to the show dogs seen in the contemporary ring.

So, why the breed change over time? It’s rather simple. As modern America evolved so to did our interest in other working breeds. Also, show dogs, in particular from England, quickly began to supplant the working lines that were not in as much demand as before. The rise of the show ring in America doomed many of the old working lines. Not all, but many. Over time, what was once smaller, athletic, and tight skinned, became enormous and ungainly. And with appearance changes also came many congenital debilitating conditions such as bad hearts, thyroids, hips, elbows, eyes, and ears. Other inheritable issues that never were in the breed are popping up now more than ever before such as epilepsy, cataracts, and glaucoma. All of these issues are based on bad breeding practices.

Nature did not make tracking animals that we overly large with incredibly baggy skin, loose eyes, and ears that were tripped over because they were so large. Natures best scent trackers are athletes that are nimble and fast.

The following bloodhound traits that are often touted by “Experts” as tracking dog traits are myths designed to rationalize certain breed standards and are not based on any scientific testing or facts:

1)        Myth: Very loose, baggy skin ensures that the scent on the ground is captured in the skin for the bloodhound to use. Truth: Overly loose, incredibly baggy skin only guarantees infections and injury.

2)        Myth: Long ears that sweep the ground also sweep up scent to the bloodhound nose. I have no idea how this was ever tested, as there has never been any scientific way to test for human odor, where it is, or how it gets to the dogs    nose. Again rationalization of bred for appearance simply to make it sound  cool. Truth: If sweeping ears were necessary for scent the wolf and coyote would have them. And the wolf and coyote can track circles around any bloodhound.

3)        Myth: The bloodhound by nature of the breed is a natural manhunter and tracker. Truth: Nothing could be further from the truth. Manhunting traits and tracking skills are not so much breed based as breeding based. It is not the specific breed so much as it is the professional breeding for tracking traits that make the manhunter.  There are many other breeds and mixed breeds that track just as well as a bloodhound.

4)        Myth: The bloodhound breed is capable of tracking much older scent than any other breed of dog. Truth: This is the biggest myth of all simply to sell a breed.  Again, there are no facts or true scientific tests to prove this contention. The bloodhound, if bred properly is an amazing tracker but it is not the breed, it is the breeding. Furthermore, trails in excess of 24 hours in age are fantasy and not fact based. The dogs that find people on much older trails usually do so by accident or being in the right place at the right time from an air scent…not an old ground scent track. The truth is self evident, if the   bloodhound alone was the be all end all of aged tracks then we would hear about successful finds of multiple day old trail subjects repeatedly. The reality is that these finds are rare and there are far more stories than facts.

We are not here to sell you a bridge over swampland. We are here to provide the best manhunters in the world. We know our strengths and we know our weaknesses. Every client will only receive the best we have to offer. That’s guaranteed. We do not need myths to sell our dogs. Their performance and find rates do that on a daily basis.

Selection Process:

Our selection process is rather simple. It is first come, first serve and reservations are only made with a deposit of 50%. These working dog litters do not last and all the working puppies are taken very quickly. It is not uncommon to be on a waiting list for over 6 months.

If you want to reserve a working bloodhound puppy please contact Hansen Hounds to arrange for your deposit to be made. Once received, you will be placed on the list based on prior reservations. Do not hesitate to ask where you might rank.

We test the puppies at 7-8 weeks of age based on the maturity of the litter. We are testing for trailing drive, fear issues, overall workability, and the want to work for a human. We have been testing puppies of all breeds at these ages for over 15 years and our process is about 99% reliable. When testing puppies at this age we are looking at the dog in the raw relatively free from outside social influence. The test results are more often than not, a mirror of what we expect the adult to be.

Once the puppies are tested we rank them based on Working Dog Candidate or Pet. If we choose working dog than you can rest assured that we would work this dog ourselves. Just because the Hansen hounds are bred for work does not mean that all the puppies, or any of them for that matter, will make the grade. Out of a litter of 10 we will be very happy with 3-5 working puppy candidates. We only choose dogs that we would work ourselves for our clients. It is that simple.

We will refund your money or transfer it to the next litter at your discretion if after testing no puppy from a current litter proves acceptable.

Testing Day:

Testing takes approximately 20 minutes per puppy and it has to be done in a distraction free environment with people unknown to the litter. It is a difficult and time-consuming process. Therefore, we do not allow any observers during testing time. You are welcome to be in the area to pick up your puppy after testing should one be chosen for you.

Pick up day:

The buyer is responsible for all travel related considerations for the puppy after testing. We can provide transportation and arrangements for air travel to other locations but there is a base charge of $650. This fee includes a vet health certificate for air travel, an airline approved crate, and drop-off at the air carrier of the buyer’s choice. This fee does not include the airfare or any import, export fees related to travel. It is the buyer’s responsibility to arrange for all travel for the puppy. All travel, import, and export related rules or regulations are the buyer’s responsibility to understand and plan for. The buyer has the option of simply picking up the puppy shortly after testing. In this situation we will not provide any vet services or health certificates.

Boarding after testing:

Boarding after testing is charged at a rate of $35 per day. This does not include vet visits or travel to the vet. All vet visits and vet care are the responsibility of the buyer. We can arrange for vet services for a separate fee. Boarding does include food. Boarding does not include any training or environmental exposure.

Questions about testing should be referred to GAK9 staff.

Payments for puppies and testing will be made directly to Hansen Hounds.

She is an excellent GSD pup with amazing capabilities already at this young age. Few pups at nine months show her level of commitment to a trail.This one was unmarked with a surface change and a fair amount of distance. She absolutely rocked it. Take a look at the video again and you will see a classic GSD proximity alert from about 100 yards out (approx 2:07) . As Voodoo runs the fence line, she suddenly speeds up, hops a little and puts her nose in the air. She looks straight ahead, then turns to the right and gazes towards the metal building the subject was hiding behind. She then goes to the trail and continues to follow but faster. You can tell the speed increase by the noise I am making trying to keep up. The precursor body language I just mentioned coupled with the new speed is an FBI clue that the handler is getting close
