Several years ago he had an experience with his personal canine. While he was checking up on an event he noticed a disturbance at the front entrance of a outdoor event.  The unruly crowd were physically pushing security and management around. He checked in with management and they told him to call police. He knew police were at least ten minutes out before responding to the call. He reflected at that moment and realized he had his family German shepherd in the back of his large SUV. He took his canine out of the car and told the dog to bark at unruly crowd. With in minutes the once unruly adult crowd turned into well behaved elementary students and the line was back in order. At that moment he started studying how canines could be effective for security issues. In his study he started noticing how industries in the East coast started supplementing security with canines and eighty to ninety percent of security issues were resolved in a peaceful manner just by the mere presence of canines. 

In today's chaotic world businesses are looking for effective non - lethal but highly effective ways to deal with security issues which is why K9 X Factor was formed.
