Welcome to PNWK9
The Pacific Northwest Police Detection Dog Association (also recognized as PNWK9) is an organization dedicated towards 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 Detection K9 teams working in Law enforcement. While its membership is primarily Narcotic Detection dog teams, the association strives to also provide training and support for Detection Canine teams working in other fields of expertise. In 1998, the association held it’s first conference and the conferences continue today with great instructors that 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.
