New Fish And Game Conservation K-9 Trainee Makes Her
Fish and Game Conservation Officer Eric Fluette with new
New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s K-9 Conservation Corps
has a lively new recruit. “Moxie” is a 9-week-old Labrador
retriever donated by Wes and Belinda Reed of Rise and Shine
Retrievers in Barnstead, NH. This is the second generous
donation made by the Reeds to the Department through the
Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.
Moxie was first presented to her new partner, Fish and Game
Conservation Officer Eric Fluette, earlier in September. “Moxie
will work on basic obedience, tracking, and exposure to both
evidence and fish and wildlife daily,” said Fluette.
Along with Fish and Game’s other canines and handlers, Moxie and
CO Fluette are expected to attend basic training at the Vermont
K9 Academy, and “boot camp” at the 37th Basic Canine Patrol
School next summer. The school is 544 hours and runs from July
until November. Upon completion of the course, Moxie and CO
Fluette will receive certification in tracking, evidence
detection, and fish and wildlife detection.
