K9 & Tactical Training Academy

Established in 2006, the K Street Group has since emerged as a preeminent, key provider of risk mitigation and protective services, both domestically and abroad.

In 2018, K Street Group embarked on creating a K9 Unit that would satisfy the unfulfilled needs of corporate America, houses of worship and mass gathering event organizers by providing explosives and narcotics detection, along with search and rescue services.

Today, K Street Group is enlarging its portfolio of resources to incorporate a full service, premium K9 training and handling business unit. In addition to these all-inclusive services, we are further expanding to subsume an executive protection and tactical training campus, established under K Street Group Holdings entity.

Our New K9 Training & Boarding is Now Open And is Fully Operational

We invite you to come for a tour of our new flagship training center, located in Pittstown, New Jersey, Hunterdon County. Our new facility, located at 681 County Road 513, Peace Field Farm, Pittstown, NJ., is by far the largest and most technically advanced, privately owned, multi-use tactical training facility on the East Coast.

An extensive amalgamation of training modules offered by our highly distinguished faculty of instructors, enables security forces, civilians, and law enforcement agencies around the globe to receive the necessary tools for creating and maintaining safe environments, while simultaneously increasing their skill sets under adverse conditions.

Our state-of-the-art facility encompasses unique training options, including a simulation built to scale aircraft fuselage and a K9 scent training center, as well as multiple classrooms, accommodations nearby, and various additional training support activity centers. Our tactical range is offsite in Flemington NJ and the defensive driving range is offsite at Pocono Raceway.
