JOE SMITH 


Joe is the head trainer for VKSWD.  He is a former Marine and is K9 Handler for North Little Rock Police Department.  He started his law enforcement career in 2005 with the Washington County Sheriff's Office after being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps.  Not long after entering law enforcement, Joe began handling his first VKSWD K9.  Joe grew in the K9 world under some of the sharpest K9 minds in Northwest Arkansas.  He left Washington County for an opportunity to work with the finest police department in the state, North Little Rock PD, where he currently handles a dual purpose narcotics K9.  During that time Joe was introduced to VKSWD and began an apprenticeship under Criss Gardner.  


Training police dogs is a passion for Joe.  He takes pride in every dog that passes through VKSWD.  Joe has trained dogs, taught seminars, and helped build stronger, more productive K9 units across the country.  Joe specializes in K9 tactics and has been instrumental in implementing tactics to K9 teams in Arkansas.  Joe is a certifying official for the State of Arkansas.
