Mark Linhard

Mark Linhard, a former US Marine Corps Sergeant, is a Trooper First Class and lead instructor for the CT State Police K9 Unit.  He has trained hundreds of dogs for basic patrol, search & rescue, bloodhound, narcotics, cadaver, accelerant and explosive detection.  He most recently co-developed the world’s first electronic storage detection K9.   His K9s serve departments across the country, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont State Police; FBI; Anchorage, Alaska PD; and CT Department of Corrections. He has also conducted K9 training for military and government agencies.

Mark, and his former partner, a German Shepherd named Bak, were part of the search and rescue team at Ground Zero in 2001.  And, in 2013, after crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon, he quickly turned from marathoner to explosive detection K9 trainer and coordinator, working alongside the CT and MA State Police Bomb Squads during the Boston Marathon bombing.
