Victim Services Dog - Mulder

Mulder's Graduation

On Sunday, May 29, 2016 Victim Services dog Mulder, was one of 16 dogs to graduate from the Dogs With Wings program in Edmonton, AB. Upon graduation, Mulder and his handler Victim Services Coordinator Bobbi Jo Bradley returned home to Medicine Hat, to begin his work with the Medicine Hat Police Service Victim Services Section.

Mulder is the sixth dog of his kind in Alberta trained to work with victim services.  From the time Mulder was several days old his
trainers started introducing him to sounds and textures.  His proper training started daily at 8 weeks of age. He will be used to comfort victims by offering short-term animal therapy to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, and other emotions that can come from high-stress situations. 

Victim Services dogs like Mulder are especially a great comfort to children. Mulder’s training and certification
allows him to function unobtrusively in public places, to ignore distractions, and to be attuned to people’s emotions. 
As a working dog Mulder will wear a MHPS service vest while on duty and will be eased into operations during the summer months.
