VPD Dog Squad Brings Home the Hardware.

Today was the Police Service Dog competition at the 2009 World Police & Fire Games.   Twenty-two dog teams representing police agencies from as far away as California competed for medals in obedience, agility, box search and protection work.

In the ‘overall’ category, three teams were awarded the coveted medals for being top dog:

Gold Medal– Ken Greenleaf and PD Vader, Redondo Beach Police Department, California

Silver MedalRichard Wong and PD Knight, Vancouver Police Department, Canada

Bronze MedalDerrick Gibson and PD Teak, Vancouver Police Department, Canada

Congrats to all the competitors – it was a fun day to watch, and if the “ooo’s” and “ahhh’s” were any indication, I think the dogs really impressed the crowd.  All results will soon be available on the WPFG website under RESULTS (top bar menu).

Personal kudos to Rico and Derrick.  These two guys have what it takes – they train hard, they work hard, they play hard.  And it shows.

Good job, gentlemen.  You’ve done us proud.
