Vohne Liche Kennels and Kinetic Performance Dog Food Announce Winner of K-9 of the Year Contest

Congratulatios to Deputy Suzanne Fisher and Kir

Vohne Liche Kennels, a full service K-9 training facility for Police and Military Service Dogs, and Kinetic Performance Dog Food, named Deputy Suzanne Fisher and K-9 Kir of the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Reno, Nevada as the winners of the 2016 K-9 of the Year contest.  Deputy Fisher and Kir will be awarded a one year supply of Kinetic Performance Dog Food for the winning photo submission. In addition, Kir’s winning photo will be featured in Kinetic and Vohne Liche media and marketing materials for the remainder of 2016.

Suzanne and K-9 Kir photoDeputy Fisher and Kir were selected as the winners by Vohne Liche owner, Ken Licklider, and a few members of the Vohne Liche Team. “Our program is focused on developing the finest working police and military K-9 teams in the world,” said Licklider. “Deputy Fisher and Kir are a great example of the kind of quality teams we work with each year in training over 400 dogs and 150 handlers from 46 states and 20 foreign countries each year.”

“We’re proud to be a partner of Vohne Liche Kennels and to help showcase a working K-9 team like Deputy Fisher and Kir,” added Dave Dourson, Co-Founder of Kinetic Performance Dog Food. “People don’t realize the rigorous training these teams go through and the commitment it takes by both dog and handler to become a highly effective K-9 team.”

Kir was whelped March 21, 2011 in Lanskroun, Czech Republic and was paired with Deputy Fisher in February of 2013. They were certified as a dual purpose team in March of 2013 before being assigned to the Washoe County Detention Facility and, subsequently, the Washoe County Courthouses. In referencing the photo, Deputy Fisher shared, “My Sergeant, Mike Wright, loves photographing the dogs in action and this was one of Kir’s first pictures being taken with a camera instead of a phone. The camera and the sound it made when taking a picture caught his curiosity.”
