K-9 Sable started his training with the Puppy Behind Bars organization. K-9 Sable recently completed his 16-week training program with ATF to join the ranks of the Explosives Detection Canines (EDC). K-9 Sable had a big job to fill when he stepped into the very large paws of Special Agent Canine Handler (SACH) Randall Dockens’ first ATF K-9 Charlie, who is now retired.

In K-9 Sable’s short time operational, he has supported the U.S. Marshals Service, the Department of Defense, and others with explosives sweeps..
