About Kim Bialkowski



I started working with Bloodhounds in August 1995. I earned my first tracking title in the same year. I earned my first TDX in the spring of 1996. Since then I have worked and tracking titled every dog I have owned in both Canada and the US. During this time I was also wor

king with my local BC SAR [Search & Rescue] group and have many "finds" with many of my bloodhounds. I have been involved with Search and Rescue since Dec. 1996. I had the first RCMP bloodhound in BC, and the third certified bloodhound in the history of the province. I have had a mission ready bloodhounds in Washington State since 2000 when congress changed the rule to allow me to be an active member from a foreign country. I have two bloodhounds in the Canadian and American Working Dog Hall of Fame.

I am the current Chairman of the Canadian Bloodhound Club Trailing Committee, as well as a judge . I am also an American Bloodhound Club trailing judge since 1997. I am a Provincial Emergency Program (PEP) Ground Search and Rescue Team Leader, and an Instructor as well as a Track Aware person with PEP and UTS (human tracker). I am also a certified team leader in Washington State, a senior K9 handler with Northwest Bloodhound Search and Rescue. Every two to three years I attend a law enforcement seminar and get a written evaluation as a mission ready K9 handler with Virginia Bloodhound Search and Rescue.

I am currently working my dog, a 2 1/2 year old bloodhound named Au, who has achieved her AM/CAN/INT Champion, TD, MTI, CGC, and CGN. She is mission ready in Washington state and working towards her RCMP certification. She is also working on her obedience and agility titles with the AKC and CKC.

What Clients Are Saying:

My darling French Bulldog Maggie has passed this course with distinction. This would not have been possible without the fine teachings of Karen and Bev. Both these ladies conveyed instructions clearly and with humour, making the hour fun and interesting for both dog and owner. Maggie and I thoroughly enjoyed the course and plan on being back for more next fall. With many thanks,

Mimi Hayes and Maggie Mc.F. Hayes

My Mom was very impressed with the change in Finn and reminded me of a walk we took last March where he was explosive at everyone we met along the way.
