K9 "Warrant" began his training when he was only a few months old. "Warrant" has been certified in Narcotics detection through the American Working Dog Association since about the age of one year old. Warrant continues to train and certify with O'Mally's K9 Services.
Please note: K9 "Warrant" is a working dog. When you see him, please do not attempt to pet him.
