Bryan Peel enlisted with the Air Force in 1995, where he served just under 25 years until retiring in 2020 to pursue his passion of working dogs full time. During his Air Force career, he served in the Weapons career field until 2014, when he was then selected for the First Sergeant special duty. As a First Sergeant, he served with Joint Service Fire Fighters, Security Forces, and multiple Joint Service Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance units before retiring. Bryan has had a love and fascination for strong working dog breeds as early as he can remember but it wasn’t until 2005 while stationed at Hill AFB Utah, that he would first get involved with working/training protection dogs. He got started with a local PSA club, where he also got his foundational introduction to decoying all levels/ages of dogs. For the next 5 years, Bryan learned under Greg McCoy of McCoy K9, while training/handling his own Presa Canario and first protection dog. After an Air Force transfer, Bryan landed in west Texas where he immediately linked up with an IPO/IGP trainer/competitor. He would spend the next 3 years learning the sport and IPO/IGP helper work. After a local transfer to Security Forces, he took advantage of the opportunity to invest himself in the unit's Military Working Dog section. His sport perspective brought a deeper focus on prey development and grip technique resulting in stronger, more complete, dual purpose MWDs. Bryan has since provided decoy work for K9 units from San Angelo PD, Tyler PD, and Smith County Sheriff's Office. He has also trained and decoyed for less common guardian breeds like Presa Canario, Caucasian Ovcharka, Bouvier des Flandres, etc. He has helped dog/handler teams earn certificates and titles in PSA, FR, and IGP, to include a PSA PDC with his own Presa Canario; and 1 of only 2 Presa Canario in the last 5 years to earn this. The majority of Bryan’s experience and knowledge was gained through “mileage”, mentorship, and hands-on time with dogs; however, he has spent countless hours researching and educating himself, driven to be a better trainer/handler. His passion, diverse protection background, and off-breed experience give him a deep understanding of drive and grip development and how to maximize each dog’s genetic potential.
