The M1-K9 Story
M1-K9 Collars was founded in 2009 in Huntington Beach California. But the story really starts back in 1993 when Al Pozzolini (Owner, M1-K9 Collars) decided to be a tanker in the U.S. Army. Those were the days of Desert Shield and Desert Storm. There’s nothing in the world like an M1 Abrams Tank! Load, drive, shoot. A 120mm main gun that can put a 60 ton tank on the rear of its tracks! Whew!
Fast forward and Al was in college when he got his first dog Luke. Luke was a black lab from Cedar Valley Kennels in Stoddard, Wisconsin. With a field trial blood line, Luke was about the most bad ass lab you could find and Al’s love for the breed was born. Years would pass and Luke was a legend of a dog all the years through. But Luke would not ultimately be the original M1-K9. There would be the original M1-K9’s, plural…Jack and Betty. It was when Al connected his love and respect for the military with his love and respect for dogs that he decided to make M1-K9 Collars. And the rest is history!
