Malpeet K9 Academy
Malpeet K9 Academy specialises in the use of operational dog teams, the sale of dogs in various disciplines and handler training both for UK and overseas customers.
We are members of, and approved trainers for the National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU). All detection dogs are trained utilising ‘real’ drugs and ‘live’ explosives. Malpeet K9 Academy is currently one of only a few UK companies licensed to possess controlled substances for the use of training detection dogs.
Malpeet K9 Academy is also an ELCAS approved training provider. We have helped many service personnel pursue a successful dog handling career. Working with various local and national charities such as the ABF Soldiers Charity, we provide the best training courses covering many aspects of working in private security as a dog handler.
Our MD Simon Mallin has worked with clients around the world and is currently working on projects in Kenya that include Lewa Wildlife Conservancy’s anti-poaching dog unit.
Learners at Malpeet K9 Academy have a unique opportunity to learn from industry experts with international operational and training experience.
Mike contacted us in February 2015 to enquire about a detection dog handler course, with a passion to work with dogs, he has chosen to become a dog handler as his second career after a very successful one in the armed forces.
Mike was able to use his entitlement with the Enhanced Learning Credits to fund the 32 days Explosive Detection dog handlers course as we are one of a few dog handler training providers with ELCAS approved status.
We introduced a small payment plan last year to help learners who self fund course fees spread the cost into monthly payments with no extra fee. Mike took the opportunity and funded the general purpose level 2 course himself. Upon completion of the general purpose dog handling course, Mike was introduced to his current employer by our MD Simon Mallin.
We pride ourselves on our continued support for our graduates from the first day of training through to employment.
