Perhaps the next Paw Patrol movie could star the amazing Peel Regional Police K9 team. Call it a Dog-Day Weekend.

“The pup-arazzi will be all over this and want to highlight not only their paw-some work, but also the paw-sibilities with   @PRPK9,” tweeted Peel Regional Police.

The writer of that tweet, Const. Akhil Mooken, is right. Unleash the autograph hounds, too. These K9 officers’ bite is definitely bigger than their bark.

In Peel, the whole K9 unit is very paw-pular.

“Two nights of paw-sitive results for the Shepherds on “D” Platoon this weekend,” tweeted the K9 unit. “#K9’s Griffin and Nitro made arrests and located evidence in four investigations: A stabbing, a wanted male, grocery store break and enter, and an impaired driver.”

Maybe this movie should be called Four Collars. There’s a bunch of people now in the doghouse. Here are the nail-biting calls that had the fur flying, courtesy of Const. Sarah Patten:

— Stabbing at Hurontario and Dundas Sts. where a victim, 37, flees to his residence and calls police. K9 checked the area with his uniformed partner and located a male matching the description, who once searched was found to have a knife in his pocket. A 54-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault.

— Responding to a possible person in crisis, police found a male refusing to exit a vehicle. With some K9 help, the window was “breached” and the driver was arrested for alleged impaired operation and possession of drugs.

— At Dixie and Britannia Rds., “K9 initiates a traffic stop” where a “male was arrested on an outstanding warrant.”

— At Howden Blvd. and Vodden St. in Brampton on a break and enter call, “two males were caught by uniform officers exiting store. PSD (Police Service Dog) Griffin locates break-and-enter tools” and “two grocery baskets filled with grocery items in the field behind the plaza.”  

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

These doggy bags have helped put detectives on the trail of the suspects as the investigation continues. Needless to say, there are no sleeping K9 dogs lying around in Peel Region.

“We pup-preciate our fur-legged colleagues and their partners, as well as their commitment to keeping #PeelRegion safe!” tweeted Peel Police.

There’s lots of puppy love going on in Peel, where these K9 cops were barking up the right tree. As these alleged criminals found out, every dog has its day.

And as Mooken said so well, Griffin and Nitro have earned a day off and a pat on the back.
