My name is Sonny Henegar, owner of 10-8 K-9 Specialties. I began my police dog training career in early 1987 and have spent the last two decades passionately dedicated to perfecting my talents as a dog trainer. Fortunately, from the beginning of my career, because of geographic location, timing and a little luck, I have been surrounded and mentored by some of the greatest minds in the police K-9 training industry. Although this network of trainers and myself all have our own unique methods and training programs, we continue to this day to share information, new ideas and street experiences in order to continuously evolve and improve our K-9 handlers and their dogs.

My experience in dog training is not limited to police dogs. I am a service and hearing dog trainer, personal protection, sport and pet dog trainer. I was president and founder of the National Association of Protection Dogs (N.A.P.D), this was the first biting dog sport created in America; expert witness, seminar speaker and the training director for Pro-Train Institute, a vocational dog trainers school.

My police dog program is a combination of solid proven training methods, real life experiences and common sense. I am a "tell it like it is" trainer and have high expectations for all my K-9 teams. Whether you are starting a new K-9 program or are interested in increasing the level of performance of your existing program, I look forward to hearing from you!


"We are a Municipal Government Agency in a rural Community in San Diego County. I came across Sonny a few years back to help us bring our K-9 unit to the next level, I am very pleased to say our K-9 program has become a very important part of our District.

Sonny has trained and motivated our officers to become professional handlers as well as putting them in real life situations. Our program was customized to our specific needs. I would highly recommend Sonny to anyone who is serious about K-9 training and becoming a professional handler."
