SOC’s Canine Solutions division operates a 40,000 square foot, three-acre training facility in the United States, in support of one of the largest canine programs in existence with deployed canines and handlers in the United States, the Middle East and Africa. This state-of-the-art canine training facility prepares our animals and handlers for deployment with training and testing in protection, patrol, apprehension and detection. Detection canines may be trained to track and detect elements such as human scent, explosives, narcotics, and hazardous materials, depending on the specific needs of the contract or program. SOC canines are carefully selected through a series of tests and a strict review process, which examines the innate drive and basic capabilities to be successful as part of our integrated security solution. SOC’s trainers and handlers employ a positive reinforcement training standard where the health and welfare of the animals is paramount. SOC dogs are considered important members of the team and critical additions to the professional workforce, supporting some of the most important national security missions here at home and around the world.

SOC Canine Adoption Program

Through our canine placement program we seek to find happy homes that fit the personality of our dogs moving into retirement. Because we love our dogs and grow really close to them, we want to place them somewhere where they will have a great life and get lots of love. SOC Canines are beyond a standard pedigree with a very specific energy, ability and training that requires capable owners with extensive knowledge on canine handling. Once we receive the initial application, our canine team leaders and canine handlers carefully review and screen potential owners to place our dogs in the right home. Once a family is identified, there are a series of meetings (in-home meetings) and a stringent screening process in place to ensure the fit is right for both dog and owner. SOC has also partnered with canine rescue groups to identify potential families.
