HCDC is located in Pipe Creek, Texas, 40 miles from San Antonio, on a 40 acre site.  HCDC has at its disposal numerous facilities both on-site at its training facility and off-site as well.  Our geographic location affords us a wide variety of training venues that include sites that are very similar to those that might be the working environments the K9s would be deployed.  At our facilities headquarters we have a unique building used to train and evaluate K9 teams which would allow for non-intrusive monitoring of K9s during simulated building searches.
