Our Brands, Part 2 - Recon K9


Recon K9, is one of the absolute leading suppliers of tactical dog equipment in the world. They supply equipment for dogs in police, various agencies (eg Secret Service and Homeland Security), military (including several special forces), security companies and SAR. All manufacturing is done in the USA, with headquarters located in Charlotte, NC.

The founder of Recon K9, Jason Watson, began his career in the dog world in 2006 when he started the company Dublin Dog Co. He ran it successfully and in 2012 sold it to The Remington Outdoor Co. After the sale of the company, he remained in charge of K9, focusing on police and military.

In 2015, Jason started working as a consultant at Capewell Aerial Systems, which led to him starting to work as an employee there in 2016. Recon K9 today cooperates with Capewell Aerial Systems, where e.g. The K9 Parachute Jump Bag is a shining example of what they accomplish together.

Jason then started Recon K9 in 2018, continuing there continuous development and specialization of tactical dog equipment with a focus on police, military, security companies and SAR. All experiences and ideas from before have been given full space to thrive here. This is noticeable not least in the extremely high-quality harnesses, but also in the various special products that have been developed. The products are often developed through requests from users, creation of prototypes and field tests. If specialized solutions are needed, Recon K9 is quick to produce prototypes so that you can test yourself until the absolute best solution for you. This of course applies to all types of users, from training & competition to SAR and Authority exercise.

(We are aware that there are sequences where dogs are equipped with so-called "e-collars" in the film. Working K9 Scandinavia advocates only positive methods in dog training, and in no way encourages the use of "e-collars". Worth noting is that these collars are often used as summons for police and attack dogs in other countries, as the remote control has a long range, and in many cases it can be the only way to recall a dog that is chasing a suspect and that the handler has lost contact with , or if the dog is inside a building while hunting/breaking in. The remote control is also used to call dogs in quietly, and with minimal risk of escaping. The collars are thus rarely used for training/punishment, and are set to either vibration or as low power as possible.)
