Our Story

Now you can have your dog training done by the same professionals who train the major league dogs of the world. The staff at IronHeart believe wholeheartedly that a happy dog is much more susceptible to learning. For this reason, we go out of our way to maintain good balance and ensure the dog is enjoying the obedience process. We have perfected varying methods for the varying personalities that exist in dogs and people. We are not a one size fits all type of training facility. Having said that, we do believe in quality results. Depending on the problems or behaviors encountered we will suggest the most appropriate methods of training. Everything will be very transparent and discussed prior to implementation.

Whether it is dog obedience training or protection dog training, the staff at IronHeart will find a program suitable for you. We offer many packages for obedience and protection dog training. Everything from one on one, to board and train packages are offered.

IronHeart prides itself in being much more affordable than many companies offering the same training. We offer instruction of the highest caliber while also offering fair pricing. It is not our intent to gouge the consumer, but to provide a fair price for honest, hard work.

After spending 30 years training police and personal protection dogs, we are now offering this same obedience and protection training to the public on a broader scale. We are located near Ottawa, Kansas, but we do have packages that include training at your home or pick up and drop off service for some board and train packages.

The search for a legitimate dog training program can be difficult. It is our intention to make that decision easy. We do not believe in blowing air hot around and speaking in circles when instructing obedience or protection training. We produce results.

You must have excellent obedience to have an excellent protection dog.

I cannot speak highly enough for the quality of dog that IronHeart provided. When I went back to my agency after completion of the course, K-9 officers in the area were impressed with the quality of dog I had received from IronHeart and made comments such as, “I wish I had a dog like that”. IronHeart is a top-notch training organization who I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed with a K-9 from IronHeart.
