Whether it’s relaxing in a hot tub, swimming laps, cruising the Shenandoah River, or driving I-95 to the nearest beach, when humans want to relax a little, they often turn to water. It’s no different for our furry friends. Water can be a dog’s best friend. And there’s a new business in Winchester inviting you to “book your pet’s stay in paradise.”

Paradise, in this case, is in many ways like “home,” if your home has a dog-friendly indoor pool in addition to comfy beds for downtime, toys, and places to socialize. and play. The Ridgeside K9 Winchester Aquatic Center recently opened in Frederick County’s Gateway Mall on Berryville Pike, just a few storefronts from the Ridgeside K9 Doggie Custody and Training Center.

Ridgeside K9 owner Aaron Taylor and his staff hope the dogs and their owners will feel comfortable as soon as they enter the business.

The facility includes treadmills, an outdoor exercise area, and 24/7 staff that allows dogs out every 90 minutes. “It’s a family environment. There are always people around,” Taylor says. He says the constant presence of staff puts the dogs at ease, so there isn’t the same amount of barking you might hear in traditional kennels.

What the 24/7 staff also offers local dogs the chance to splash around in a 51,000 gallon pool at the aquatic center. Taylor thinks it’s the largest indoor pool in the country dedicated to dogs. This equipment sets Ridgeside K9 Winchester apart from the company’s 11 other locations in seven states. The company, currently based in Loudoun County, is set to make the Winchester area its center of operations.

The width of one side of the pool at Ridgeside K9 Winchester has dog-friendly stairs for easy entry and exit. It is equipped with special filtration equipment to keep dogs and humans healthy. Most of the pool is 2 feet deep. However, the deep end peaks at 4ft 9in. This allows dogs to be trained to ride the paddle boards, kayaks and canoes available at the center. It’s a saltwater pool, which is especially nice for dogs learning to swim, according to Taylor, because it gives extra buoyancy.

A US Navy veteran and former police officer, Taylor knows how to operate around water and training environments. It also includes the type of trauma that first responders and veterans may face. Therefore, in addition to training and helping dogs, the company also has a people-oriented mission. Ridgeside K9 seeks to help former first responders, ex-police officers, military veterans and others who have served the public in high-stress, service-oriented jobs – “put down the pills, put down the bottles and grab a leash “.

Taylor strives to hire local people and takes employee retention seriously. In Virginia, Taylor says the company has 100 people on the payroll. Ridgeside K9 has lost only four of these personnel in eight years. He attributes this to good pay and hiring top-notch people and trainers. Valuable employees include Taylor’s wife and former police officer, Colette Cunningham, and Jeff Aman, a Navy veteran. Taylor says the two play a key role in helping Ridgeside K9 Winchester thrive.

Ridgeside K9’s business model and mission—people helping people, people helping dogs, dogs helping people—seems to make operations seamless in what could be a chaotic situation. On a Tuesday at 2 p.m., all the treadmills in the training center are full. Dogs of all breeds and sizes trot silently side by side. In the middle of the training room, several large dogs sit obediently on dog beds and watch as another dog is trained on a leash.

Aside from the music being played, the kennel area is relatively quiet. Staff members circulate among the dogs. They tidy up, talk to dogs, and get some ready for activities – whether it’s time outside, treadmill walking, training, or swimming.

Meanwhile, at the aquatic center, a shepherd paddles quietly in the pool with a trainer, learns to swim and fetches a ball which he throws further and further. The dog’s companion offers calm words of support from the bridge.

Taylor believes dogs, just like people, benefit from interaction, exercise and engagement. He says some anxious or “hyperactive” dogs might avoid taking medication if exercised well and kept engaged.

There are three main ways dogs enjoy pool time, Taylor says. “Where the pool is really good for all dogs is safety. Teach them how to swim. It’s a life-saving skill.”

While some dogs are bred for water activities, other dogs don’t find swimming natural. Taylor says testing the waters in a one-on-one situation in the indoor pool where there are dog-friendly life jackets, trainers and accessibility features is a good way to explore a dog’s comfort and ability. in water.

“The second part for some dogs that are obese or have other issues is getting them into an environment where it’s easier for the joints to exercise,” Taylor says. Swimming provides good non-impact exercise once dogs get the hang of it. One minute of swimming is equivalent to four minutes of running for dogs, according to veterinary surgeon and canine physiologist Dr Arleigh Reynolds, quoted on the Ridgeside K9 website.

“The third area is rehabilitation,” says Taylor. “Hydrotherapy has great benefits” if a dog has been injured or has had surgery. The pool is maintained at a constant 85 degrees to provide adequate heat for therapy.

Ridgeside K9 Winchester faced many setbacks during the development of the aquatic facility. It took longer to get up and running than Taylor expected. However, he says the learning experience was “awesome” and the 18 months of work and renovation was worth it. “We achieved our goals,” says Taylor. “People are happy with the facility.”

Clients can join the pool without the presence of a trainer or with a trainer at no additional cost. Life jackets, equipment and boats are also available at no additional cost. Dog owners can bring up to two of their dogs for $50 for a private 30-minute swim. If a dog is boarded, owners can pay $15 to have their dog dive during a stay.

The company plans to expand its aquatic offerings and outfit the center with aquatic canine athletes to train in dock diving, recovery sports and more.

Perhaps informed by his experience with the Marines, Taylor and his team dove headfirst into new waters when they set out on a mission to create Winchester’s first aquatic dog center. So far, the crew is not just walking. It moves like a tight ship surrounded by dogs paddling happily alongside.

Oct. 1—BARRACKVILLE — After a successful fundraising campaign, Barrackville’s beloved K9 unit, Reudiger, will be retiring after seven years of service to the city.

Reudiger began his service in Barrackville in 2015 with Deputy Clyde and continued his service with Police Chief Chuck Wilson from 2016 until Thursday afternoon, when Reudiger last signed.

This retreat has been a long time coming. In mid-August, Wilson and members of the Barrackville City Council launched a donation campaign to train a new K9 officer to replace Reudiger.

Reudiger is an 8 and a half year old German Shepherd and the usual lifespan for his breed is 9 to 13 years. Wilson worried that Reudiger would have to work until he died, so he began to want to let the pup live out its golden years as a pet.

Wilson said he noticed Reudiger slowing down this summer and thought it would be the best time to raise money so he could retire.

Fundraising got off to a slow start until the story took off on social media and the GoFundMe went from $75 to over $1,000. By the end of the campaign, the Barrackville Police Department had raised more than $7,000 by September.

About $5,000 was needed to train the new dog, according to Wilson. On September 6, the Barrackville City Council welcomed and approved Ozzy as the city’s next K9 officer and he officially began training with the North American Police Working Dog Association. Ozzy is a 17-month-old male Malinois X, which is a mix of German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois, according to Wilson.

“It’s bittersweet. [Reudiger] done a lot of good, but we’re just grateful that the community was able to pull together and keep us going [K9] program,” Wilson said.

On Thursday afternoon, local police scanner traffic was silenced and an announcement was released honoring Reudiger and his services to the county and Barrackville.

“Today marks the end of an era, as K9 Reudiger retires from the Barrackville Police Department. Reudiger began his career in Barrackville with Deputy Clyde in 2015 and then continued his career with Chief Wilson from 2016 to today,” the dispatcher said.

“Reudiger not only brought many people to justice, but touched many hearts and brought happiness to so many in the community. His hard work and service made a difference to the citizens of Barrackville and the entire county. of Marion.

Thanks to Chief Wilson for looking after Reudiger as he goes 10-7 to enjoy his well-deserved retirement.”

Since Reudiger is officially off duty, Wilson said Ozzy is fully prepared to serve and respond to any situation. The Barrackville City Council is expected to officially welcome Ozzy to the police force at its next city council meeting on Tuesday, October 4.

WINCHESTER – Whether it’s lounging in a hot tub, swimming laps, cruising the Shenandoah River, or driving I-95 to the nearest beach, when humans want to relax a bit, they often turn to water.

Coast Guard K9 Force Commander Commodore Allen Dalangin inspected the ongoing construction of the joint PCG-PPA K9 Academy on Monday, September 19.

Construction of the first phase of the facility will be completed in 2023, according to the Coast Guard K9 Force.

The PCG-PPA K9 Academy is being built on a 10-hectare site in Brgy. Dolores in the Mabalacat town of Pampanga.

“Once operational, the PCG-PPA K9 Academy will serve as the nation’s comprehensive and advanced training center for all Coast Guard working dogs and their handlers,” the PCG said in a statement Tuesday, September 20.

The academy intends to produce highly effective K9 units for search and rescue (SAR), threat detection and fugitive apprehension.

It will also house future K9 units that the PPA will recruit and integrate into the state corporation. By doing so, the PPA is expected to save 30 million pesos from its annual budget by hiring private working dogs and dog handlers to maintain port security.

The inauguration of the K9 Academy took place on August 25, 2021. It has an initial budget allocation of 100 million pula given by the PPA.

Upon completion, the K9 Academy is expected to be equipped with a livestock facility and veterinary clinic, a live explosives training site, an indoor training area, a conference for K9 handlers and accommodation spaces for instructors, staff and in-house trainees.

The PCG and PP joint venture aims to increase the number of Department of Transportation Active Working Dogs (DOTr) to at least 1,000 units for tactical deployment at all marine, road, rail and air transportation facilities nationwide.

There were 480 working dogs and 514 handlers active under Coast Guard K9 Force supervision as of September 20.

K9 detectives: Dubai Customs sniffer dogs take down drug smugglers https://bigtallk9.com/k9-detectives-dubai-customs-sniffer-dogs-take-down-drug-smugglers/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 03:50:00 +0000 https://bigtallk9.com/k9-detectives-dubai-customs-sniffer-dogs-take-down-drug-smugglers/ With an elite sense of smell 10,000 times better than humans, dogs make perfect detectives – and Dubai Customs’ K9 unit helps catch criminals and thwart the illegal flow of narcotics and explosives across borders of the United Arab Emirates.

With an elite sense of smell 10,000 times better than humans, dogs make perfect detectives – and Dubai Customs’ K9 unit helps catch criminals and thwart the illegal flow of narcotics and explosives across borders of the United Arab Emirates.

In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya English, Dubai Customs revealed that its team of canines – including Springers, Spaniels, German Shepherds, Malinois; a Belgian sheepdog – and Labradors – have played a key role in 84 major drug busts over the past five years.

Dogs, said Adil al-Suwaidi, director of the technical assistance department of Dubai Customs K9 unit, play a significant role in drug and explosive seizures at different ports in the emirate. He explained that their incredible sense of smell, maneuverability and loyalty make them an invaluable asset to Dubai’s border security.

Major seizures, which were made with the help of the sniffer dogs, included a seizure of 308,020 captagon tablets at Deira Wharfage, which were hidden under the wooden floor of a dhow.

Another seizure took place in Jebel Ali where captagon pills, hashish and crystal meth were found hidden in a shipment of scrap metal.

The sniffer dogs also helped thwart major smuggling, including large amounts of captagon pills and marijuana hidden in a fruit truck entering the country.

“These dog breeds are active, hardworking, stubborn, alert and protective,” al-Suwaidi explained. “They use their keen sense of smell – which is up to 100,000 times better than a human’s – to locate hidden narcotics or explosives.”

There are 20 trained dogs in place, who are supervised and cared for by a team of experts.

Fifteen years of K9 border control

The K9 unit was established 15 years ago in 2007 as part of Dubai Customs Technical Assistance Department and the first group of four search dogs – two Malinois and two Labradors – began working with their dog handlers the same year.

Advanced training programs are important to ensure the effectiveness of the K9 unit’s operations, al-Suwaidi said.

Detector dogs have extensive and regular training, as do their handlers. This relationship between dog and human is essential.

Training a detector dog can take between three and 10 months.

“The inspectors in charge of sniffer dogs receive regular training on methods of detecting drugs and prohibited substances, as well as body language, and they work in harmony with their dogs to thwart the various contrabands,” said al- Suwaidi.

Even by canine standards, the dogs in the K9 unit have an impressive sense of smell thanks to generations of selective breeding.

Above all, dogs no longer work only in freight or customs areas.

The dogs provide aid to air, sea and land ports in the emirate, and they work shifts to cover 24 hours a day.

“The Technical Assistance Department provides training and equipment to all customs centers,” al-Suwaidi said. “We equip the training centers with the most advanced inspection devices and, with the help of the sniffer dogs, we are fully equipped to fight against all smuggling attempts.”

Stafford Township Police Ollie and Raven, Ollie and Raven, retired earlier this year. This summer, an almost 3-year-old Belgian Malinois named Venus joined the department as Det. Zach Wiatrowski’s drug-sniffing dog partner.

Ollie and Raven were patrol dogs, he explained, meaning they could do tracking and criminal arrest, and then narcotics too. Venus, Wiatrowksi’s first police dog, will only do narcotics detection, not bite work.

She was born in the Netherlands from a winning line and sent as a puppy to a seller of similar breeds, in Mahwah. The Malinois is one of four varieties of Belgian Shepherd, known as reliable working dogs.

The three characteristics to look for in a narcotic dog are prey, play and seeking, Wiatrowski said. A short initial encounter gives an impression, but not the full picture.

“She had the best (traits) of any dog ​​we looked at, so we took her home,” he said. The first two weeks were a trial period to see how she interacted with Wiatrowski’s family, other dogs and strangers.

For narcotics detection, “we don’t want an overly aggressive dog,” he explained. “Look, she can just sit here. She is cool. You can pet her.

Patrol dogs, on the other hand, are too aggressive to be seen in the general public.

A dog’s training for police work can begin as young as 16 months, but most start around 2 years old, Wiatrowski said. Narcotics work is less physically taxing on a dog than patrol work, so a drug-sniffing dog may have a longer career.

When Wiatrowski takes Venus to training, he calls her “going to work.” For her, it’s a game.

“I could throw this ball all day, and she just wants to keep going and going,” he said.

They completed a month of basic obedience training in July, with the department, in-house. In early August, they started one-on-one with Atlantic County John “Sonny” Burke K9 Academy coach Joe Nick. The program can last from eight to 12 weeks, depending on the reaction of the dog and the handler. Nick estimates that Venus will graduate in early October.

“When you’re in drug school and you watch her work, she says on it, you’re like, ‘Wow, that’s pretty cool,'” Wiatrowski said.

He marveled at the mental connection he and Venus quickly made.

“I can’t find the drug because I can’t smell it, so it literally works. I have to read her behavior, but she can’t talk to me,” he said. Venus looks at her partner as if to ask, “Where’s my toy?” But he has to leave her to fend for herself. During this time, they get to know each other’s minds and body language.

According to Wiatrowski, drug school is less about discipline and more about fun. “You want her to have so much fun,” he said.

They play fetch with rolled up towels that have been sealed in a bucket with a quantity of an illicit substance, to impregnate the fibers with perfume. Praise teaches it to associate smell with reward, and this is how it imprints certain drugs. She knows cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, heroin and ecstasy. When she finds the scent, she sits down to point it out and waits to be rewarded with the towel.

“These dogs are major assets,” Wiatrowski explained. If the police have reliable information about the presence of drugs in a car, they can ask to search the car, but if the answer is no, the green light from the dog is worth as much as a warrant.

“We take her out, she steers the car, she sits down, says positive, we can search the car on that,” he said.

Dogs previously trained to detect cannabis have been rendered moot by its legalization. Today’s K9s are unaffected by its smell.

Stafford is trying something new by placing a K9 officer in the drug unit — the dogs were always on the road before, Wiatrowski said. Depending on how everything goes, the department may add a second K9.
