Ben Gibson is living the dream. Married to his high school sweetheart and with two beautiful young children, he’s also achieved his ultimate goal of becoming a member of the elite Victoria Police Dog Squad. For Ben life just couldn’t be better!
But then a series of personal disasters leaves Ben questioning his future. How can he continue in the job he loves when so much has been taken from him? As he struggles to overcome his own feelings of devastation, his boss presents him with the opportunity to make a fresh start.
He reluctantly accepts the challenge to become the first Victoria Police dog handler to relocate to country Victoria leaving his family in the care of his father and mother-in-law while he completes a six-month trial in the rural town of Clarkdale.
Overcoming the initial doubters amongst the locals that a city-boy can cope in the country, Ben and his police dog Sabre set about showing their worth.
From detecting drug stashes concealed in cars to tracking down violent criminals and apprehending armed and dangerous offenders, Ben and Sabre quickly become an invaluable asset to the local police members and prove that, even with many technological advances in crime detection, nothing matches the skill and tenacity of a well-trained police dog team.

About the Author

Brian Barnard served with the Victoria Police Force in Australia for 24 years, 18 of which he spent as a member of the elite Victoria Police Dog Squad. After leaving the force and a successful foray into the corporate world, Brian finally sat down to write the first of a series of novels about “the greatest job in the world”, being a police dog handler as told through the eyes of his composite character, Sergeant Ben Gibson. The Dog Cops has a rich blend of characters and gives an intimate insight into the extraordinary behavioural traits of the highly trained dogs and the bond that exists with their handler. The police dog action sequences are based on authentic operational experiences along with a rare insight into the day-to-day life of being a police dog handler.
