I have been a member of the PK9A® when I began with my first K-9 partner, Bono, in 2014. Bono and I had an outstanding career thanks to the training and support received from the PK9A®. When Bono passed away suddenly in November 2020, the PK9A® also stood by as family, not just as members and friends. Since the passing of Bono, I have completed by state certificate with my newest partner, K-9 Puma. We are excited to continue to protect the good people of Steubenville and surrounding areas, thanks to the training, education and tools provided by the PK9A®.
