Meet Bandit

Bandit joined the team in the spring of 2012 when Wallace was managing a K9 ranch in Banning, CA.  One day, while trucking to the dump, Wallace and his associate spotted an Australian Cattle dog on the side of a freeway ramp. After several attempts to lure the confused pup to safety, Wallace realized that all he really wanted was water.  After one sip out of Wallace’s hand Bandit “loaded up” into the truck and the two have been partners ever since, adventuring from bear country in California to chasing trout in the streams of Maine.  

Bandit has a uniquely empathic and aware demeanor; he plays a great role in Coastal Canine, setting a positive example for puppies and providing socialization for all dogs. Whether pursuing Professional K9 Services or tracking missing animals, Bandit is always on a mission and loves meeting new friends!
