FTI K9, a division of Force Training Institute, is renowned for importing, breeding, and training the finest European German Shepherds in the world - from puppies to full-grown experienced dogs. The FTI K9 team, lead by Raul Hernandez, are driven by two core values: Our love of dogs, and our dedication to improving people’s lives.
For more than 30 years, FTI K9 selectively imports and breeds European German Shepherds for their intelligence, courage, temperament, and dependability. Our dogs are very carefully selected from the finest kennels of Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the Netherlands, and Austria. The German Shepherds that are part of our FTI K9 Breeding Program consistently produce well balanced, driven, dedicated dogs with the solid temperament and grace that exceeds even the highest German standards required for the breed.
FTI K9 German Shepherds are trained to exact standards at our 32 acre facility in North Central Florida. Our proprietary “real life” training methods prepare our dogs for agility, family protection, law enforcement, military, sport, and obedience. But first and foremost, an FTI K9 German Shepherd is a loyal, obedient, and trustworthy companion to you and your family - a friend that will give you the peace of mind that comes from having a vigilant protector for your home.
"What sets FTI K9 apart is the love, dedication, and passion we have for what we do. We have the experience and know-how to place the right dog in your home. The positive change our dogs make in people’s lives is what drives our team to work hard and always be there to support the FTI K9 customer."
