Custom K9 Police Challenge Coin

Police K9 Units Challenge Coins

With over 50,000 police dogs working in valuable and serious policing tasks and K9 units, it is no wonder that they are much loved partners by their K9 handlers as well as by members of the community. Custom Police K9 Challenge Coins are ideal for honoring these outstanding Police & Dog teams as well as for fundraising and promoting awareness and close community relationships.

K-9 is the acronym for canine and can refer either to the dog or the entire dog team or unit. Whenever you see K9 on the side of a police car it means that this car is part of the K9 unit and carries an active, working police service dog.


Training of dog handlers takes one to two years before they are paired with their dog partners. At the beginning of the selection process for suitable dog candidates for K9 units, they must successfully pass the basic obedience training course before they can be considered for a police department. It is absolutely vital that the dog will obey their handler’s commands without hesitation and the K9 handler must be in full control at all times during police operations for successful outcomes and the safety of the officers. All police dogs are highly intelligent, highly trained, and along with their police handlers place their lives on the line on a daily basis to help protect and serve their communities.


This working partnership will usually last for five to ten years before the animal needs to be retired. These human and K9 bonds are deep and meaningful. Successful retired dogs often become the pets of the handler and their family when their active career ends.


Popular Police Dog Breeds

Traditionally, German Shepherds, Belgian Malamutes and Doberman Pincers have been bred and used as Police dogs. However many agencies have begun using other breeds and crossbreeds for specific tasks. The breed of the police dogs in the K9 units are interwoven into the custom police k9 challenge coins. Some of the most popular dog breeds include:


• German Shepherds

• Belgian Malamutes

• Doberman Pincers

• Dutch Shepherds

• Labrador Retrievers

• Beagle

• English Springer Spaniel


These outstanding breeds are on the selective choice for police dogs because all of these breeds share an impressive working ethic, and their bond and working cooperation with their handlers when working in delicate and dangerous police operations.



In the policing requirements of today, the German shepherd and the Belgian Malinois remain the breed most commonly chosen due to their high energy, incredible intelligence, loyalty and versatility in learning and carrying out a variety of different tasks.


Benefits of K-9 Unit Services:


Substance Detection Dogs, who work for Police, Customs or the Military are highly trained to use their incredible sense of smell to detect illegal drugs, currency, flammables, bombs or explosives.


Apprehension and Officer safety, police attack dogs that work with Police Services and Military branches to find and locate, apprehend and subdue suspects and work diligently to keep their human partners safe.


Tracking and Search and Rescue (SAR) Dogs specialize in using their sense of smell in finding missing, injured or lost people.


A PR Blessing, K9 service dogs are recognized and well loved in the community and they add a fun and special touch to all of the events, celebrations, parades and activities they participate in with their K9 handlers. These amazing dogs are good will ambassadors and help integrate and promote harmony and interaction between the police and the communities within they serve.


As L. Paul Waggoner (PHD) an expert on Police Dogs and leader of the Canine Performance Sciences Program at Auburn University stated to the Homeland Preparedness News , "It is my perspective that detector dogs are a critical component of national security – and they also provide a very visible and proven deterrent to terrorist activities."
