About Us

The Police K-9 Association promotes service and safety in our communities through the efficient deployment and use of K-9 teams. The PK9A® consists of active and retired teams from a multitude of different police and sheriff departments. Many of our active teams are also members of the U.S. Marshals Service, FBI Task Force, S.W.A.T., and various school systems.

Our predecessors formed the PK9A® in 1985 with the intent to assist a single department for their own needs. Over the last four decades, our organization has grown exponentially. In our partnership with the Canton Police Department K-9 Unit, we assist our members by providing the imperative education and training.

To ensure the quality of training, memberships for active K-9 teams are limited and require an approval process. To learn more, please complete the ‘Contact Us’ form on our website.
