Boon docks K-9 search and rescue SCAM WARNING For the last year we have been investigating this organization to see their legitimacy. Unfortunately they are not. They have no proper training and we have never once saw a improvement on any of their dogs. They use off breed dogs mostly rescues that do not have the drive or background to do any sar. We took there two "sar" dogs to do a mock hunt and the only thing they found were areas to crap and pee in. I donated a dog that was more then capable of sar work and nothing has been done in any sort of sar with it. I have been in contact with all the national SAR organization they are apart of and none of them have any records of them being certified.

More info on him running a scam

AUTHOR: - ()

 I have just learned that Luis vega has defaulted on his payments in the civil suit he lost where he stole a person credit card and claimed that I was his legal council. When comforted about the non payment from the victim he was more concerned about them staying away from my organization that has more then enough proof to now file suit against him

The truth is never harassment

AUTHOR: - ()

this is a ploy to undermine a 1 year investigation into boondocks k9. Our teams first hand witnessed  no training of any kind that is related to search and rescue. The owner has been also had complaints filed with the BBB on the misuse of customers credit cards and is now under investigation for a 501c scam. Luis Vega posted this notice 7 hours after our findings where made public. Luis Vega is a thief and a con man who Phase flip flopped about his dogs cents and lie on many occasions when changled about this. He has personally lie and Cia connection and doing privet security contacts for the gov. Stop being a coward and close your doors you have many chances of become a legit sar but has chosen to take people's hard earned money.
