BHAD Thanked for 2016 Donation to DE K9 Unit

March 17 2017 by Shirley Bigelow

Denise Jester, a member of the Blue Heron Agility Association, was instrumental in arranging for the funds from the organization to purchase a new protective vest for the Delaware State Police K9 “Blue”.

Each year BHAD chooses two K9 Units to donate funds to for the purchase of a safety vest.

Good afternoon Denise,    

Once again on behalf of myself and the Chief of Police, thank you so much for your club's donation. I just wanted to email you the information you requested about my dog. Blue is a 5 year old Belgian Malinois that I got in March of 2012. Blue received initial training from the Delaware State Police K9 unit which consisted of a total of 24 weeks. Blue is trained in Patrol, Tracking and Narcotics detection. Blue receives monthly training (Approx. 20 hrs) from the Delaware State Police K9 training division. Blue was imported from the Netherlands in February of 2012 to a K9 kennel in Virginia called American K9 interdiction inc.


Thanks again,

I want to thank you and your club again for the donation. We were able to get a vest ordered for Blue and it just arrived yesterday. I put the vest on Blue and it fits great.


Thanks again,
