Police K-9 Blitz       #18-054

Police K-9 Blitz, a German Shepherd from Poland, is certified in Narcotics Detection, Tracking and Handler Protection. Blitz travels all over Colorado to search buildings and cars, and look for criminals. 

Because of his furry appearance and friendly personality, Blitz is a crowd favorite while serving as an Ambassador for the Colorado Rangers, where he is always on the lookout for missing children and criminals. 

Blitz loves playing in the water and snow, and finding drugs. He really dislikes bad guys who try to assault his fellow police officers.

Can you tell that Blitz seems to know when his photo is being taken?

The National Police Canine Association conducted a 4-day, advanced training course in Jackson, WY last week.  K-9 teams, consisting of the handler and dog, from law enforcement agencies around the country trained very hard and were tested for the certification required to be considered a "Dual Purpose" dog. 

In this training and certification course, the "Patrol 1" designation is considered a passing score with one or more faults.  Patrol 2 is a perfect score.

Other than Blitz and his handler, all other participants the training were full-time K-9s, many of which have been on the streets for up to 7 years with their handlers having up to 20 years of experience.

Only 4 K-9s teams received the Patrol 2 certification.  Blitz and his handler were among those 4 teams.  Go Blitz!
