Burlington, MA Officer Joe Papsedero and K-9 partner Havoc featured on local NBC affiliate to highlight the need for NARCAN if the K-9 inhales large doses of opiates on the job doing detection work. Watch the video for more details. This team is a favorite I’ve photographed over the years in my work with various departments!
I’ll be with the Irondog K9 crew March 2-3, 2016 to create photographs of the amazing team that train. Join us!! Click the training details image below to sign up…
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly
so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -Theodore Roosevelt

K9 Guardians the movie is set to release in July 2015. During the filming I have been documenting the work of these amazing k9s and their handlers in stills to show the intensity and drive these police teams have to work the streets every day.
George Quinlan, owner of It’s All About the Dogs Training, is a host of a weekly television show in Biddeford, ME sharing training philosophies, dog sports and more. I was featured on an episode for my work on K9 Guardians and my animal photography in general. Here is a little clip the K9 Guardians team sent out to social media…

2015 is bringing lots of opportunities to the world of working dogs. Particularly to MWDs and K-9s from all divisions (bomb dogs, man-trailing, HRDs, tracking, and more). However, we are also upon trial season for French Ring, PSA, Dock Dogs, and a slew of other dog sports. Despite the purpose and the locations, the people and dogs that work together to learn and compete or certify train hard. This is their life. Day in. Day out. I’ve recently viewed posts on social media feeds where mondio competitors (some of the most diehard handler/canine teams out there IMHO) practice their positions (sit, down, stand in one spot without creeping) on any available surface at Lowe’s, Home Depot, on a dumpster while they wait in a parking lot, you name it. The world becomes a training ground. The more variety the better. The more exposure the better.
Facebook has become a leading resource for finding out about these training seminars due to the up-to-date posts in specialized groups that focus on speciality training for dogs. Recently I’ve found a few good contenders I wanted to share with you here via links ::
