Ventosa Kennel has been purchased by Cobra Canine. Jeff Franklin, owner of Cobra Canine and Tracy Bowling prior owner of Ventosa Kennel had planned for years to work together in the kennel business. Tracy mentored Jeff in many ways and of course Tracy's early departure interrupted things. Jeff stayed in contact with Tennessee Bowling and Ventosa Kennel over the past years and eventually made arrangements for the purchase of Ventosa Kennel. Many or our training programs are centered on the extensive experience of Tracy Bowling who had for over 35 years provided canine training services for the military, law enforcement as well as private industry. He trained and utilized Patrol K9, Narcotics K9, and Tracking K9 teams for Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies to include training the first narcotic detection canines for the state of North Carolina in 1971. Tracy also developed explosive and tunnel detection canine training programs for US Department of Defense for use by the US Military along with K-9 teams deployed during the Viet Nam war. Tracy's career included four years of street experience as a full time police officer and K-9 handler. He provided contract Bloodhound tracking services to the FBI, US Army CID, US Marshals Service, NC State Bureau of Investigation, NC Department of Corrections, NC Highway Patrol, and numerous local law enforcement agencies resulting in over 400 apprehensions and rescues. Tracy was also a founding member of the North American Working Dog Association and the Author of "Police K9 Tracking: A Guide to Training and Deploying the Police Tracking Dog."
