Police Service Dog (PSD) Brando is as badass as he looks, and PSD Bailey is a social pup who likes the proverbial coffee break. PSD Jack is always on point, and does his furry best when it comes to interviewing pupetrators!
Clark says that the VPD Canine Unit currently has 15 dog teams and each team is a police service dog and human handler. They’re important because they’re trained in so many police disciplines.
Some include criminal apprehension, tracking, recovery of evidence, firearms and explosive detection and narcotics. The Canine Unit responds to more than 10,000 calls a year in the city of Vancouver and to Lower Mainland police agencies who may need police dogs.
The 2019 calendar is $15, and can be shipped anywhere in the world, so head on over!
