About Guardian Point

Guardian Point was incorporated in 2014 to provide clients with a broad range of innovative canine capabilities to meet the security and detection needs of the modern world. As kidnappings, terrorist attacks and bomb threats continue to make headlines, the founders of Guardian Point realized they had the skills to meet these challenges. These skills revolve around harnessing the canines’ natural abilities to provide force protection and hazard detection in any situation. Our goal is to train and equip capable canine teams that can operate independently in every environment imaginable.
