The Pacific Northwest Police Detection Dog Association (also recognized as PNWK9) is an organization dedicated to enhancing the professionalism and training of detection dog handlers throughout the Pacific Northwest. Member states and provinces include Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Washington and British Columbia, Canada.
Founded in 1997 by a group of dedicated K9 narcotics detection dog handlers, PNWK9 provides training and certification to Narcotic & Explosive Detection K9 teams working in Law enforcement. The association strives to also provide training and support for detection canine teams assigned in other areas of detection to ensure all teams working in the field of Law enforcement have an opportunity to benefit from the training provided by this Association. In 1998, the association held it’s the first conference and the conferences continue today with great instructors from all across North America, which help handlers in every aspect of their commission.
This organization strongly supports the efforts and training of Western States Information Network, Rocky Mountain Information Network, and individual State Narcotic Enforcement Associations.
