Congrats to K9 Ghost and his handler!
Austin Police Department’s K9 Ghost is top dog — literally.
Ghost, with the help of his K9 officer Lt. Matt Holten, was named the United States Police Canine Association No. 1 overall dog last week at the National Trainers Certification in Detroit Lakes.
“It’s kind of humbling,” Holten said.
Holten has participated in seven national certifications with two different dogs, and although he’s come in second place before, he hadn’t come in first until now.
“I guess persistence paid off,” he said.
