Welcome to the Colorado Police Canine Association

The Colorado Police K-9 Association is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization formed in 2004 primarily to establish minimum standards and provide certification for deployment of police service dogs in the state of Colorado. The certifications were designed to be realistic and to set a minimum level of acceptable performance for K-9 teams in the state. Our standards have been approved by the state Chiefs of Police and Sheriffs associations, as well as the Colorado Board of Peace Officers Standards and Training. To date we have provided hundreds of certifications for K-9 teams in the state and have continued to grow as an organization. There is no charge for certification other than the annual membership fee.

We hope to help provide health care for retired police service dogs through our fundraising efforts. Once the dogs are retired, they become the sole responsibility of the handler at a time when they are most likely to need care and deserve the very best we can provide.

oldo.2007-2011The Colorado Police K-9 Association is striving to create an environment for training and certification for all K-9 teams in the state that will produce the most reliable, professional K-9 teams in the nation.

All donations received will be used to further the goals of the Colorado Police Canine Association E.I.D # 56-2388549 . If you wish to donate, CLICK HERE to make an online donation or send checks payable to:

K-9 Jason

Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said a very sad goodbye to K9 Jason, a tracking bloodhound. Jason was six years old and had been actively working the street with his best friend and handler, Deputy Cathy Bryarly, since April 1, 2012.
K9 Jason suffered an acute medical issue while ‘off-duty’ and underwent immediate surgery. K9 Jason continued to suffer complications and underwent a second surgery shortly before passing away.
You can find more information, and leave condolence messages on the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
