Capital K9s shone at the annual conference of the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Canine Handler Association (WLECHA). Our very own K9 Roko and Ofc. Sarah ...Boespflug came in second (out of over 140 teams!) in the patrol challenge. 🏆🥈
The scenario was a large warehouse (approximately 100,000 square feet on three levels) filled with shipping crates. The challenge was to 'clear' the warehouse with your dog; ie, the canine has to find a suspect/decoy hidden high up on a shelf, in one of the shipping crates. Fastest time wins.
Super impressive Ofc. Boespflug and K9 Roko! Congratulations and thank you for your service in keeping our community safe. 🐾

National Police Woman Day, September 12. We honor all our female officers, especially our female K9 handlers. Dog of the month K9 Roko is so happy ...to be partnered with Ofc. Sarah Boespflug that he's picked her a bucket of grapes. 🍇
Ofc Boespflug would like to thank K9 Roko's sponsors, Animart Madison Pet Store and Truesdell Animal Care Hospital & Clinic and most especially, the generous anonymous donor whose big heart is responsible for bringing K9 Roko to our community. ❤️
Thank you, Ofc. Boespflug & Roko, for your heroism and courage in protecting our community. 🐾

Dog of the Month K9 Roko has had a great summer. In addition to his 'day job,' he's attended two camps for children: the Leadership ...Academy presented by the Madison Police Department and COPS Kids Camp. At the latter, K9 Roko assisted with arts & crafts...who knew he was so talented?
COPS Kids Camp raises money for surviving children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. https://www.concernsofpolicesurvivors.org/handsonprograms
