David Pappalardo

Owner, Trainer, Handler, Breeder

David’s first major experience with dogs was when his dog Hunter, a Belgian Malinois, had puppies with a neighbor’s German Shepherd Dog. As he watched the pups grow, he knew he wanted to work with dogs. David has since sought out the best trainers to study from and K9 training schools to attend. He has completed canine training courses from Tarheel Canine Training, Police K9 Services/North State K9 Academy as an Obedience Instructor, Police K9 Trainer and K9 Decoy. He has also received certificates in Scent Detection, Tactical K9 Operations and as Master Canine Trainer. David uses training philosophies that he has learned from years of training and competing in martial arts and applies them to dog training and decoying. David’s specialty is bite development and as a K9 Decoy. After representing other training companies, David started K9 Unlimited LLC. He has been breeding and training since 1994 and stresses quality over quantity. He regularly attends, hosts and instructs dog training seminars and clinics.
