Patrol Training

Golden Gate K9 Patrol Dog Training is a 200-hour course that meets and exceeds the California Peace Officer Standards Training (P.O.S.T.) Guidelines, and California Narcotics Canine Association (CNCA) Certification Standards. Course includes a P.O.S.T. or CNCA Certification by a Disinterested Certification Official.
