    I volunteer @ the PennVet Working Dog Center. The Center was Developed after the attacks on the World Trade Centet (9-11) as a tribute to the dogs who lost there lives performing search and rescue at ground zero.

    They now specialize in training working dogs for S&R, Medical detection (ovarian cancer, Diabetic alert, and now Covid 19 detection), as well as duel purpose (scent detection & apprehension) K9’s for police departments and the like, throughout the country. Although I do have contact with the dogs mentioned in this article, i personally have been assigned to  train with the “Police k9 Team”. I find it to be an honor to work with dogs and trainers of this caliber, it’s a truly incredible learning experience.
