About Us

Established in 1997, Canadian K9 was the first full-service private security firm that offered K9 Detection Services for both narcotics and explosives in Western Canada,  in addition to offering traditional guard, investigation and security consulting services. 


Our K9s are professionally trained to a high level of proficiency and validated through the Justice Institute of British Columbia. Our K9 teams constantly train to keep their skills sharp.


The olfactory (smell) senses of a canine are unparalleled, having between 125-300 million scent glands; while humans have only 5 million. This, combined with our K9s' high drive and desire to search, is part of what makes K9 detection work so effective. Our K9 teams are able to efficiently confirm an area is safe. We know time is of the essence, and our K9s are conditioned to react instantly

Canadian K9 falls under the umbrella company group8108 Executive Protection Inc. (group8108). group 8108 is a privately held VIP security company established in 2010 to provide VIP security support to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
