Desert Dog Police K9 Trials are April 13th & 14th, 2013

This is one of the best annual events in Scottsdale.  For a donation of $1 you can witness police, military, government and security dogs display their immense talent and lust for biting handlers in protective gear.  While the handlers look to have fun, the dogs have even more.  They love their work as evidenced by the tail (or whole body) wagging as they trot onto the field.  Please support this great cause and cheer for your favorite with the best bite technique.  Be glad you’re not a bad guy in Arizona!  More information is at
