The Advanced Canine Athletic Program, or ACAP for short, is a program that focuses on improving the overall conditioning of the canine and improving their effective working pace. The ACAP was developed as a collaboration between Sean McPeck and Guardian Point and draws on their unique experience as veterinarians, canine trainers and handlers from law enforcement and elite military special operations units.

The ACAP app provides two (Basic and Premium) structured conditioning programs for both Patrol and Detection canines, complete with a daily schedule, videos, instructions, and educational content.


The Basic version is intended for the beginner. The Basic program explains every workout in detail and includes instructional/educational content videos from experts in the veterinary community. The majority of the Basic program workouts range from 15 – 30 minutes in length.


The Premium version provides a stepped progression from the Basic version to more difficult workouts that will take you and your dog to the top level of desired fitness. The Premium program workouts range from 30 – 90 minutes in length. Along with more difficult workouts that will result in a higher level of fitness, the handler is able to access additional educational content with the Premium version.
