About Us

The mission of Sheepdog P.A.C.K. (Protection Advancement Concepts & Knowledge.) Training Company is to provide quality training to professionals and civilians in order to protect themselves as well as others more effectively and efficiently. We base our training on self-protection and the protection of others by utilizing advanced concepts and knowing how to implement those concepts. Sheepdogs can be anyone that has made the conscious decision to become more than just a sheep, they want to be a protector of sheep. We 100% believe that a Sheepdog doesn’t necessarily have to be someone in Law Enforcement or the Military.

We are a Christian company and here at Sheepdog P.A.C.K Training Co. we believe that the more well trained Sheepdogs we have in the world the less likely the Wolf (Bad Guys) will try to attack. But if the Wolf attempts to prey on the innocent sheep, the goal of Sheepdog P.A.C.K. is that they will be met with a P.A.C.K of highly trained Sheepdogs that are prepared to do what is necessary to stop the Wolf.

We take civilians that aren’t necessarily Professional Sheepdogs but may have the same ability and mentality of Professional Sheepdogs and train them to be a part of the Sheepdog P.A.C.K. These civilians that we turn into Sheepdogs are vital to stopping Wolf attacks because they do not look or act like a typical Professional Sheepdog and the Wolf would never expect it.

Sheepdog P.A.C.K. Training Co. are committed in training all Professionals and Civilians that want to learn better ways to protect themselves and others against the Wolf. We specialize in everything from Firearms training and tactics, to self-defense and control tactics, with more focus on responding to active attacks. We also provide LTC classes as well as Reality Based Scenario training that will allow you to better prepare your mind, in order to speed up your reaction and response to an attack. We also provide corporate group training on how to respond to Active Attacks in a business or corporate setting.

Our target market are Civilians but all Law Enforcement, and Military Professionals are more than welcome and encouraged to come train with us. Due to the recent events in our society with random attacks on innocent civilians we want to empower these select civilians to become Sheepdogs. We want to train them to respond effectively to an attack WHEN not if one occurs. This is because it is more likely that these Civilian Sheepdogs will be present before a Professional Sheepdog arrives. 

Empowering Civilians to become more like Sheepdogs has always been a touchy subject. There are many Professional Sheepdogs that don’t agree with teaching Sheepdog tactics to civilians. The difference in our belief at Sheepdog P.A.C.K. Training Co. is that we are willing to trust this select group of people and provide them with the knowledge and training to better protect themselves and their families. In turn by having more Sheepdogs that are properly trained to respond to these random attacks will limit the number of innocents that would be injured or killed.
