Some Police Dog/Rescue Dog Resources ---

Many of the professional Police K9 associations
produce some sort of publication/newsletter for

professional law enforcement personnel. But some
also include publicly accessible articles re
various aspects of using/training/caring for
K9 dogs on their websites.

Dog Association includes a quarterly newsletter.

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for magazines titles that may be
suitable for police dog trainers.  Specifically
ones that are written by police dog training
societies/associations.  Can anyone help?

This is an enquiry only and doesn't constitute
and order.

Thanks
Sharon Diehm
