Testimonials:


“Agenda and location were superb. As a K-9 explosives detection handler, some great training ideas were brought to my attention that I can’t wait to share with my fellow handlers here in Spokane.”

– Rebecca Jacoby-Lorenzo (Attendee)

“I attended last year’s conference and it was a GREAT learning experience as a new handler in the business!”

– Osmaine Gabourel, Belize (Attendee)

“I think I can speak for everyone when I say, thanks for bringing our community together! K-9 Cop continues to stand on the cutting edge allowing readers, trainers and vendors to work together in what is generally thought of as a divided industry. The work you put in will pay dividends for generations! I am just proud to have been a small part of it.”

– James Allen Parker, World Class Canine (Instructor)  

Our conference & vendor show is open to all K-9 trainers, handlers, law enforcement, military personnel and enthusiasts.
