I will say that our local emergency vet cared for our dogs, for free, for over 20 years. Since they've become the largest on the East coast here they now charge us but at a reduced rate. Heart worm and flea&tick used to be free, now they charge us. So yes, we'll use some of the money for that as well cause it ain't cheap.

Re: K-9 killed

I'm adding to this thread as it appears another K9 has been lost in Alaska, this time to a medical reasons. For those who have knowledge of the associated costs in obtaining/maintaining a dog for a PD is the the figure they give in the article accurate?

Going rate for a PSD candidate is $8,500. Since they already had a dog the cost of the vehicle and associated equipment doesn't come into play. Cost to train is debatable. Most agencies have a schedule to replace dogs in the unit. Don't know how old this dog was. Sometimes if we lose a dog that has working life left we will allow a seasoned dog to work longer if he's capable and use the slated funds to purchase a new dog. Cost of training is the officer's salary. The OT is something they have figured already for that handler, it's not extra.

My best guess total, money-wise is around 20K or so. That includes purchase of the dog, 480 hr patrol school, and 160 hr narc school. Also based on officer pay at $20/hr. In Florida, a seasoned handler only has to certify. If they can do it in less time they are allowed. I've certified 3 dogs in 200 hours. Gotta do the full drug/bomb/cadaver school though.
