Your Working Dog Radio hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with Raleigh Police K9 handler, Officer Michelle Lyman.

The gents talked with Lyman about policing in Raleigh, NC and what it’s like being a K9 handler there. Lyman has been with the department since 2004, and a handler since 2010. Lyman’s first K9, Kota, was a dual purpose patrol/narcotics K9. The pair worked together for almost a decade before K9 Kota retired. Lyman had a unique experience in that she worked two K9s at the same time; K9 Kota’s replacement, K9 Rocko, and single purpose explosive dog, K9 Peppers. Lyman explained K9 Rocko’s wash from the program, and her fourth partner, K9 Knox, who unexpected passed from bloat recently this year.

Lyman has nearly two decades of experience, so sit down, listen up, and learn a thing or two! She’s currently training with her new partner, K9 Jakko (pronounced Jaque-o) who she got in October. Follow her at @k9kotaskrew
