Dog lovers can now add something canine to their Christmas list.

The Winnipeg Police Service and the Winnipeg Police Association have announced the launch of the 2014 Winnipeg Police Canine Calendar.

The calendar — which is available at all of the city’s Petland locations; Monart St. Vital (9567 St. Mary’s Rd.); the Red Top Drive Inn (219 St. Mary’s Rd.) and the Winnipeg Humane Society (45 Hurst Way) — features the dedicated police dogs of the Winnipeg Police Canine Unit, officials say.

The unit is comprised of 12 handlers and 23 dogs, which are trained in tracking, criminal apprehension, obedience, evidence recovery, and narcotic and explosive detection. The dogs are responsible for hundreds of arrests every year.

The calendar costs $15 and all proceeds will go the WHS, which is based in Fort Garry.
