About The K9 Guardians Foundation


The K9 Guardians Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides Law Enforcement, Military and Working Service K9 teams with equipment and cutting edge survival training, ensuring they return safely to their families.

The non-profit was established by Paul Ludwig, a 25 year veteran K9 police officer from Washington D.C., who almost lost his life during a shooting when a police K9 failed to engage. The foundations purpose is to provide life saving equipment, real-life survival training methods, and critical thinking decision making under stress. Training techniques are derived ONLY from experienced law enforcement/military instructors who have survived life-threatening encounters in real life. Since it’s inception, the K9 Guardians Foundation has provided hundreds of K9 teams advanced training and much needed equipment throughout the United States and countries throughout the world.
