Colorado Task Force 1 K9 Training
On August 4th, 2023 Colorado Task Force 1 K-9 training was held at Marston Reservoir in Denver with Denver Fire Department Engine 1, Rescue 2, Special Ops Captain & COTF-1 Assistant Chief. 5 dogs and handlers from CTF-1 and 1 dog and handler from Iowa. Denver Fire provided divers to go underwater 15′ for the Task Force Dog Teams. The dogs would train to locate a body under the water. Each K-9 handler had a few searches that were successfully completed with a loud and joyful “Good Dog”, with the dog receiving one of his toys. The dogs alerted by barking and looking at the directing of the find, thus allowing the boat operator steer to the correct location.
