Our company’s Reputation is built on a long-lived principle that understanding the needs of our clients, each other, our community and anyone else we come in contact with is our top priority. Our reputation stands protected by our company’s code of ethics, culture, and values, which serve as our foundation through a tireless commitment to provide excellent customer service and working relationships to meet even the highest of standards
Hill Country Dog Center strives to procure the best suitable dog for each of our clients. We have very close business partnerships with some of the world’s largest, most reputable breeders of quality working dogs. Hill Country Dog Center has procured thousands of high quality K9s for 25 years. This has yielded many years’ experience in conducting “Procurement trips” around the world, during which we have performed extensive pre-selection testing on vendors, their canine products, and on their kennels and training sites. As a result, we have established excellent business relationships with premiere vendors domestically and abroad. Our experience in this area, along with our long-term business relationships with vendors, has resulted in a proven high degree of success in purchasing quality dogs, and in the final certification of dogs purchased. Initial screening of canines prior to purchase is critical in reducing the risk of post procurement rejection, a major issue affecting overall cost, loss of training time, schedule slippage, and the introduction of new critical paths in the training schedule. Hill Country Dog Center can procure different breeds, however, the following are the most common working dog breeds:
Belgian Malinois, German Shepherd, Dutch Shepherd, Retriever/ Labradors
