This weekend is the 9th annual “Desert Dog” Regional Police K-9 Trials in Scottsdale, Arizona. If you haven’t been to a trial before, I highly recommend it. Watching these amazing canine athletes at work with their handlers is fascinating. Teams from all over the southwest will be competing in building searches, an obstacle course, obedience, bite work and narcotic/explosives detection. I will be there on Sunday cheering on Kaos and Athos from Scottsdale Healthcare Security and their handlers, Lance and Gabe.
The action starts at 9am at Scottsdale Stadium. A one dollar per person gate donation is required. Bring your family and friends for a day full of fun. More information is available at www.desertdogk9trials.com.
