Nine Realms Canine Training focuses on raising, training, and selling fully trained working canines for Law Enforcement. Unlike most large scale kennels, Nine Realms focuses on several dogs at a time, giving each dog more one on one training so that they may develop into superb working canines. The Nine Realms’ canines are all over the world, some in Nevada, Montana, Washington, Virginia, and Tanzania. Head Trainer Karin Wagemann is experienced raising puppies, selecting green dogs, or rescue dogs, and training them for police work. The majority of Nine Realms’ canines are dual purpose patrol canines but we can easily train single purpose detection (narcotics, explosives, HRD, etc.) or tracking only canines. All canines are trained and certified to the American Society of Canine Trainers standards; canines can be dual certified in multiple organizations or agencies. If you are in need of a new working canine for your agency please check out the dogs for sale page or call/email for more information.
Previous Canines Sold and Trained
Otto is Granite Mountain German Shepherds’ newest stud. He started off with zero interest in searching, chasing a ball, or work. I built his drive for the ball, the hunt, and the work and he surprised us by passing his ASCTI narcotics building certification at the end of his fifth week of training. He is a lovable goober that loves all people, children, and dogs.
WDFW K9 Finn
Finn is a rescue from Category 5 working dogs in Texas. They tested and pulled him from a shelter when they found he had the drives for detection work. Finn is trained on zebra and quagga mussels and searches the boat check stations on the WA/ID border with his WDFW handler.
Sasha is owned by Granite Mountain German Shepherds. Sasha is trained and titled in narcotics detection, vehciles/builinds through ASCT. Sasha is social with ALL people, good with other dogs, extremely environmentally confident, confident and open in her personality, has high food drive, high ball drive, and good hunt. She is a very balanced dog with prey/defense drives and could likely do work in tracking and bitework as well. Despite being a sassy girl she is a huge snuggler and melts in your lap. Sasha is a perfect example of a well bred GSD that is social with people, easy to live with, has drive to do anything you ask of her, and is not a reactive mess.

Oke arrived to Nine Realms 15 pounds underweight (not Molly’s fault) and over two months built up muscle. Oke is currently serving in Grumeti Tanzania as an anti-poaching dog. Oke is trained on ivory, ammunition, weapons, bush-meat, and hippo teeth. He is also a trained tracking dog used to locate poachers on the Grumeti Reserve.
Elko, NV K9 Newt
Newt is a dual purpose patrol canine serving in Elko, NV with Evka. Newt came to me at 8 months old, a scrawny pup with good potential. He already knew how to bite and took to narcotics detection quickly. From day one he was a crazy, wild, silly, but affectionate dog, and remains so to this day. Newt was the hardest dog to teach tracking, to date, and came close to being placed as a single purpose detection/patrol dog. With age and constant training he pulled through and has turned into a wonderful tracker.
Elko, NV K9 Evka
Evka is a small female Malinois that is serving as a dual purpose patrol dog in Elko, NV with Newt. Although she weighs only 45-50 pounds she hits and bites incredibly dog. Evka was a joy to train as she was a natural tracker and incredibly sweet. She loves new people and gives lots of affection, but will turn on the aggression when needed.
Narsil is a certified narcotics detection and patrol tracking canine through ASCT. She certified as a narcotics detection canine at 11months old. Narsil is also trained for article recovery.
