The Connecticut Police Work Dog Association Inc. was established in 1991, to assist, unite and promote police service dogs in the State of Connecticut. This organization was established to enhance the training, education and overall working performance of our police canine teams.
The Connecticut Police Work Dog Association Inc. has also established minimum certification standards for patrol and narcotic detection canine teams. These certification standards are comparable to those utilized by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States. We also encourage and assist our members with ongoing in-service training to maintain the police canine teams proficiency.
