Town of Campbell team awarded K-9 of the Year

A veteran K-9 team, at the Town of Campbell Police Department, has been named the 2019 K-9 of the Year.

Investigator Joshua Czys and K-9 Tasja received the honor from Vohne Liche Kennels and Kinetic Performance Dog Food for their work in the community.

Vohne Liche Kennels is a full-service K-9 training facility for Police and Military Service Dogs. The owner of the kennel, Ken Licklider, and other members of his team, selected Investigator Czys and Tasja. “Investigator Czys and Tasja are a veteran K-9 team with years of great service together,” said Licklider. “It’s great to see these guys looking fit and still serving strong years after we first introduced them here at our kennel.”

“This is our fourth year working with Vohne Liche Kennels on the K-9 of the Year contest and we got another group of amazing entries this year,” added Dave Dourson, Co-Owner of Kinetic Performance Dog Food. “Teams like Investigator Czys and Tasja are great examples of why Vohne Liche is known as one of the best in the business when it comes to working police and military K-9 dogs and training.”

K-9 Tasja is a female Belgian Malinois and has been partnered with Investigator Czys since the fall of 2013. She is a dual purpose narcotic and patrol dog who also spends time with the SWAT unit. Tasja has also proven to be a major asset in community outreach and fundraising for the K-9 program.
