K-9 Unit Kudos

Police BadgeIt was a day for excellent performances, Sept. 9 at Tony Zupo Field in Lodi, during the Western States Police Canine Association event. There were 19 skilled canine teams from police and sheriffs agencies in the region, including West Sacramento, Stockton, Lodi, Elk Grove, Vacaville, Pleasanton, and Sacramento and Placer counties. Dogs were judged on search quickness, obedience, agility and ability to focus on tasks despite drill distractions. In the popular Protection event, teams were put through a series of events testing courage, stamina, speed and listening ability.

Officer Flatley and Bolo are judged during the agility phase of the K-9 competition event.
