Read Dr. Coby Webb’s Full Bio
Dr. Coby Webb started her law enforcement career in 1992 when she knew her goal was to be a police officer and eventually a K-9 handler. While working a patrol assignment, she was asked to research the need of a Bloodhound for the Sheriff’s Department.

She began to attend the volunteer training and found other sworn officers were starting Bloodhound programs for their Departments. She was told and believed these dogs could track hours old trails and were able to scent discriminate. However, later she came to the realization that because Bloodhounds are dogs, they are not perfect, nor can they be a miracle animal. She wrote the proposal for her Department to start a Bloodhound program, but it was denied. She was told if she volunteered her time and proved the Bloodhound was “reliable, needed, and an asset” for the Department, they may adopt the program.
Coby Webb obtained a Bloodhound from a working litter and volunteered her time and attended tracking/trailing schools in Colorado, Maryland, New York, and South Carolina. She obtained tracking certifications for her Bloodhound and began call outs on her own time.
Soon her Bloodhound began finding suspects hiding and a lost hiker, which saved countless man-hours. Sheriff’s Administration realized the benefits of a bloodhound program and adopted the program into the Sheriff’s Department.
Coby Webb believed the bloodhound program was a success due to the:
- Numerous people she had located / found.
- Support she received from law enforcement agencies utilizing the Bloodhounds.
- High volume of requests that were received by officers who realized the bloodhound program was an asset to their investigations.
Coby Webb’s goal was always to be a patrol dog handler and she volunteered her own time with the canine team to agitate (position as a decoy) and help in any way needed. She tested for a canine position and was selected as a canine handler with a Belgian Malinois in 2000. Webb became the first and only “dual handler” with the Sheriff’s Department.
During her K-9 years, Coby received many distinguished awards that include; Officer of the Year, Distinguished Service Medal, CPOA (California Peace Officers Association) Officer of Distinction, Hero’s Award, and AKC Honorable Mention 2 years in a row, along with numerous commendations.
Coby’s Bloodhounds, Maggie Mae, & Abbigail, were on the FBI’s call-out list and responded to Samantha Runnion and Danielle Van Damm kidnappings along with other high-profile cases. She has also worked numerous SWAT missions with her Bloodhound at local and national levels including the Sierra SWAT Challenge for several years. She was also asked to participate and teach tracking/trailing with SWAT for Urban Shield.
Coby earned her Instructor, Evaluator, and Judge Certifications for tracking/trailing for all dog breeds. She does not believe Bloodhounds are the only dog breed that can scent discriminate and trail. She stayed in the K-9 program for years and worked four patrol dogs. Coby furthered her patrol dog experience by attending K-9 SWAT schools with her patrol dog and worked two narcotic dogs.
Coby became the K-9 Sergeant for a 22-dog program for her Department. Approximately, eight years ago, she traveled to Africa and assisted the Mara Conservancy with tracking poachers. Coby receives continual invites to travel international and teach tracking/trailing for all breeds.
Dr. Coby Webb is a Board Member of the National Police Bloodhound Association, a Police Captain in Southern California, and trains Bloodhounds in Southern California for several large law enforcement agencies on the west coast. She is a Recognized Court Expert in Scent Discrimination and Tracking/Trailing and is consulted on high profile cases regarding tracking evidence.
Dr. Webb earned a Doctorate Degree in Management with a focus on Organizational Leadership in 2010. It is during this period that she invented the Find’em Scent Safe to give bloodhounds a superior opportunity for successful tracking/trailing of individuals. She is a mother of 12-year-old twins, who also care for and raise their own bloodhounds.
