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.

Dr. Michael S. Davis, Veterinary Physiologist
Dr. Michael S. Davis is a veterinary physiologist and board-certified specialist in veterinary internal medicine and veterinary sports medicine at Oklahoma State University where he conducts research on animal exercise physiology and performance. A major focus of his research activities over the last 2 decades has been and continues to be the physiology and pathophysiology of fatigue in canine athletes, including strategies and techniques to improve exercise endurance and avoid exercise-related injury and disease in working dogs. This work has spanned the full spectrum of scientific endeavors, from original field studies in remote/austere environments in which dogs are most likely to be challenged to the creation of educational materials suitable for every level of canine professional. His studies have produced practical, actionable information for use by dog handlers every day, from understanding the dietary and water intake requirements to monitoring for the avoidance of fatigue and heat-related injury. Dr. Davis has partnered with Guardian Point to provide scientific oversight and educational materials in Guardian Point’s electronic and in-person educational materials, including the revolutionary Advanced Canine Athletic Program app.
