A Society for Retired Police Service Dogs

Ned’s Wish™ is a society committed to supporting law enforcement and the Canadian Armed Forces by providing financial and educational support to enhance the quality of life for their K-9 retirees in Canada. After human police and armed forces officers finish serving their communities, their pension funds support them. Due to the cost of health care for retired police or military dogs, the potential to enjoy retirement can quite literally rest on a dime. If health care costs become too high, a dog’s quality of life can be significantly reduced, or even cut-short.

Who Was Ned?

Like most RCMP police dogs, Ned was born at the Police Service Dog Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alta. on May 21, 2003. In June 2005, he was assigned to Cst. Garfield Henderson of the RCMP Valleyview Detachment in Alberta to be raised in the PDSTC imprinting program. In January 2006, Ned entered formal Police Dog Training and completed the course in just 20 working days and officially began working operationally at Comox Valley, B.C. After five years of dedicated service Ned retired to his forever home.

Dental Care Dogs chew.  Dogs chew a lot of things. It is part of their natural behavior.  My own Golden Retriever likes to chew concrete, any hat (even if it’s on someone’s head!!!) and pretty much any stick he comes across.   Working dogs like to chew like any other dog,...
