On July 13th, 2018, Agt. Matt Wilson and his new K9 partner, Eddie, completed a 240-hour basic K9 school at Adlerhorst International in Riverside, California. During the six week course, the K9 teams trained in obedience, protection (bite) work, obstacles, vehicle deployments, and environmental issues (slick floors, gunfire, complete darkness, etc). Agt. Wilson and Eddie received many accolades from the instructors during the class.
K9 Eddie is a 3-year old male Belgian Malinois from Holland. His commands are in Dutch. Eddie was selected by Glendale Police Department from over 50 available dogs that were brought back from Europe. Eddie will later become a dual-purpose dog cross-trained in narcotics detection. Not only is Eddie an incredible police dog, but he is very social as well.
