K9 Collection Presenting Our 1st Candle to Honor Explosives Detection Dogs
This is the first candle of our K9 Collection to honor Explosives Detection Dogs. Inspired by K9 Dexter from Amarillo, Texas. Dexter is a two-year-old Chocolate Lab trained in Explosives. He is Certified through NNDDA. Weighing in at 90 pounds of Muscle and as his Handler describes, "does not understand his body at all." Dexter's Birthday is 2/10/2018, make sure you write that on your calendar so you can wish this big boy a Happy Birthday.
Dexter's Handler is Bianca Weber. Bianca was lucky enough to have the Company she worked for, give her a Professional K9 named Hickory as she went through K9 Handler classes. Hickory was able to work and teach her everything a "green" handler should know. Bianca then worked K9s for about 3 years when she discovered she really wanted to train her first dog on explosives. Her company trusted her enough to do so and helped her pick Dexter. She got Dexter at 4 months and put in the many hours to train him. She was able to celebrate all their hard work together when Dexter, after imprinting, was certified with NNDDA.
We were introduced to this Awesome team through their Instagram page @k9_dexter_ They are one of the most uplifting teams you will find! The bond between this K9 and his Handler can make you smile even on your toughest days. Fox + Hound is so excited to be able to donate a portion of the candle sales back to help with Dexter's care.
The Candle scent is Cashmere Vanilla. We think it is the perfect scent for this team. Truly sexy and warm vanilla, elevated by woody cashmere and sweet amber and rounded out with slightly detectable notes of fruity citrus.
Other candles on the market may cover the smell of your dog, but our odor-eliminating soy candles will neutralize unwanted scents and completely remove them. This cozy fragrance has a rich warmth that will soothe away all the stress from your daily life. Relax and re-charge your Soul with every light.
