Officer Kolb and Cento were selected as the winners by Vohne Liche owner, Ken Licklider, and other members of the Vohne Liche Team. “We work with dogs and handlers from 46 states in the U.S. and more than 20 foreign countries each year,” said Licklider. “Officer Kolb and Cento are a great example, from right here in our home state, of our program to develop the finest working police and military K-9 teams in the world.”
“Vohne Liche Kennels is a great partner and well known as one of the best in the business when it comes to working police and military K-9 dogs and training,” added Dave Dourson, Co-Founder of Kinetic Performance Dog Food. “We couldn’t be prouder of working with them on this contest to help showcase working K-9 teams like Officer Kolb and Cento.”
Cento is 6 ½ years old and has only been paired up with Officer Kolb for a few months. In referencing the photo, Officer Kolb shared, “The winning photo was actually submitted by Cento’s previous handler before we were paired up. Cento is a veteran and never seems too shy around a camera so we have a lot of great working photos.”
