ABOUT THE PK9A

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the Police K-9 Association (PK9A).

The Police K-9 Association was established in 1985, shortly after the start of the Canton Police Department K-9 Unit.  Original founding members created bylaws, these were created by K-9 handlers, for K-9 handlers. The Police K-9 Association was created to help obtain the equipment and training needed to be a successful K-9 team.

There are costs in starting and maintaining a successful K-9 program.  City and county financial expenses often cut-out needed equipment to maintain policing in other areas. That is where the Police K-9 Association assists these agencies.  We help offset the cost of education, training, equipment, and the medical needs of both active, and retired K-9’s.

The Police K-9 Association assists K-9 handlers from 20+ Police and Sheriff’s Departments, with 40+ K-9’s active, retired and currently in-training.  We continue to grow as the need for K-9’s continues to increase, therefore, so does our responsibility to support these K-9 teams.
