Meet Phoenix Fire Department’s New Arson Dog Sonny – Inside Phoenix


[SHOW THEME MUSIC]>>MY NAME IS ROBBY SIMPSON. I’M A CAPTAIN INVESTIGATOR
WITH THE CITY OF PHOENIX FIRE DEPARTMENT. SEEK, SEEK, SEEK. TODAY IS OCTOBER 1ST, AND
OCTOBER 1ST IN THE FIRE WORLD IS KNOWN AS NATIONAL
ACCELERANT K9 DETECTION DAY. THIS IS MY PARTNER, SONNY. HE’S AN ACCELERANT DETECTION K9. HE’S TWO AND A HALF YEARS OLD. HE’S HALF GOLDEN RETRIEVER,
HALF YELLOW LAB. HE WAS BRED INTENTIONALLY
LIKE THAT TO BE A HANDICAP SERVICE DOG. HE DID NOT MAKE THAT PROGRAM,
AND HE ENDED UP BECOMING — HE WAS RETRAINED AS AN
ACCELERANT DETECTION K9. SO SONNY’S GREAT SKILL IS THAT
HE SNIFFS OUT ACCELERANTS. SO FOR A TRAINED INVESTIGATOR,
THAT CAN TAKE QUITE A WHILE TO DETERMINE WHERE THE BEST
LOCATION IS TO TAKE A SAMPLE TO FIND AN ACCELERANT. WHEREAS SONNY CAN ACCOMPLISH
THAT IN MINUTES. STATE FARM PAID FOR SONNY,
PAID FOR HIS TRAINING, PAID FOR OUR ROOM AND BOARD. STATE FARM TOOK EXCELLENT
CARE OF US. SPENT FOUR WEEKS IN TRAINING
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. IT’S A 200-HOUR ACCREDITED
COURSE, ACCREDITED THROUGH THE MAINE CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACADEMY. AND THEN WE CAME BACK TO
PHOENIX, WHERE HE WORKS ABOUT THREE DAYS A WEEK. WE’RE ON SHIFT 24 HOURS. SONNY’S A FOOD REWARD DOG. THE ONLY TIME HE EATS IS WHEN
HE’S WORKING OR TRAINING. SO HE EATS A VARIABLE AMOUNT
EACH TIME WE TRAIN. AND WE TRAIN AT DIFFERENT TIMES
THROUGHOUT THE DAY. SO ON AVERAGE, HE EATS ABOUT
3 CUPS OF FOOD A DAY. HE WORKS ABOUT
THREE DAYS A WEEK. WE’RE ON SHIFT 24 HOURS, FOR
HE WORKS WITH ME, AND THEN EVERY OTHER DAY THE REST OF THE YEAR,
WE’RE AVAILABLE THROUGH CALL-OUT FOR OTHER INVESTIGATORS. PostCAP LLC
