This may look simple to the average viewer, but this in fact is a very challenging task for a high drive working dog and takes a lot of discipline, trust and obedience. This picture makes me so proud to say the least. So if I can leave you all with anything... it’s to never give up, give in or think something isn’t possible. I can assure you there are several along our journey that would admit they never thought what this picture resembles would ever be possible. Keep pushing, keep training, keep believing and it will be!!! #workingdog #workingdogwednesday #warriorwednesday 🐺

As a K9 handler, we are often referred to as the hero or the zero... you have to be willing to be the zero often, to have the chance to be the hero on occasion! #sheepdogs 🐺 !

It’s #sundayfunday and what’s more fun than a good bath to get clean in this summer heat!?!? I don’t know about yours, but this boy finds every creek, puddle, lake, water run off, pond etc. around the city... and he doesn’t care how nasty it is or smells. It’s wet and cool and that’s all he cares about. 💦 🐺

Some say when dogs growl you should take note and consider yourself warned... well, this is my warning from Kota every time he sees me in my regular uniform (non K9 uniform) I have to wear for off duty jobs and don’t get to take him with me. Sorry buddy! If it was up to me, you would ALWAYS go! #nothappyaboutit #partnersincrime #alwaysready #mynumberone #sidekick 🐺

A big shoutout and thank you to @usak9dogtoys for our new rough & tough grenade on a rope! Kota loves it! 🐾

It’s obvious their toys are made for working dogs that are rough on just about everything!!! #toughchewer #passedthetest #highlyrecommended #eyesontheprize “Mmm, this is so yummy. Maybe if I close my eyes I can keep it forever!” .

I’m not really a Duke fan, but some of my loved ones are... so this ones for you!!! 😉 I do however appreciate history and tradition and the Duke Men’s Basketball team is the epitome of both. Kota and I had driven by the campus the last three days on our way to decoy school and decided to take a short detour today to enjoy the sights while getting our morning exercise, stretching and Kota’s morning pee and poop in (that’s an important part of a working dogs’ day)! #duke #bluedevils #cameronindoorstadium #basketball 🏀 .

Before and after day three of decoy school... This boy only continues to make me proud! He displays what a final product of thousands of hours of training and preparation lead to!!! I seriously dread the day we have to hang up his harness for good and his predecessor take over. #hanginthereoldman #imnotready #itsallworthit #bigshoestofill #superdog 🐺

We took #trainingday to another level today with day 1 of a 4 day decoy school hosted by @nck9llc. #biteheaven #sweetspot #target 🐺
*** Disclaimer: When the shortest and the tallest person on your unit go to the same decoy school with one bite suit it presents a problem. Don’t worry, I did not wear the large and in charge green marshmallow man bite suit to catch any dogs. #iwishiwasalittlebittaller 🐾

The Sweet Spot

Behind every good k9 team is a good helper and decoy. We have been fortunate over the years to have had several exceptional decoys that are always pushing the limits and thinking outside of the box. In return, I always try to do the same and return the favor. A big thanks to each of you!!! #workingdogwednesday #decoy #decoylivesmatter 🐺👮🏽‍♂️👮🏻‍♀️

A little k9 training today sparked a little #throwback to my childhood that consisted of many many hours spent shooting hoops in hopes to one day fulfill a dream of playing basketball in college! “A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” Not only was I lucky enough to get to do so, but also fortunate to have made another dream come true... to be a k9 handler! #dreamsdocometrue #keepdreaming #drakebasketball #drakeuniversity #hardworkpaysoff 🏀.

If there’s a positive to working day shift (other than it’s good for family life and normal sleep) it would have to be the ability to explore and enjoy nature’s beauty especially after a hot & humid track. #dayshiftwarriors ... ok not really! 😲 We are #nightowls who prefer the #graveyardshift!!! I’m not going to lie... I was a little jealous of him getting to cool off and go swimming. Oh to be a dog 🐺

Happy 9th birthday Kota boy!!! How is that possible!?!? 8 years ago you were a young wild 80lb guy that came off of a plane from Holland and who I absolutely couldn’t wait to meet. You have exceeded every expectation of mine and have taught me so much along the way. Even though your body isn’t as young and agile as it once was, I still don’t ever doubt your willingness and ability to do the job that you so deeply love and excel at. Oh please please please stay young forever!!!! ***spoiled by my 3 little munchkins with a new toy, his own cake, treats, a bully stick, a picture, a banner and of course lots of lovin’!!! @westpawus @justdogpeople #happybirthday #9yearsyoung #morecatchestocome #howdidigetsolucky 🐾🖤💙🖤 .
