My name is Hennie Bolster and I am 56 years old. I started training K9 dogs in the year 1980 at the Royal Dutch Policedog Association (KNPV) club "HDC Twente", in Enschede. I switched, in 1984, to the KNPV club "Ons Ideaal", in Hengelo, of which I am still a member. In 2007 "Ons Ideaal" merged with the club "Speur en Verdediger", in Borne.
In the past 34 years I have trained multiple dogs through the KNPV. The following is a list of my KNPV achievements:
- 10 times the certificate PH I.
- 1 time the certificate PH II.
- 1 time the certificate Objectbewaking.
- 2 times PH II championsships (with Beau)
- 1 time Objectbewaking championsship (with Beau)
- 1 time PH I championsship (with Baron)
In 1986, I passed for "Afdelingshelper" at the KNPV. In 2003 I had to stop as a "Afdelingshelper", because of reaching the age 45.
In 1996 I passed for an exam to be a KNPV examiner. In the end I passed for the examiner programs of:
- PH I
- PH II
Since that I am a KNPV examiner, I have participated as an examiner in the KNPV championships.
