Southern Maryland Animal Welfare League annual event. CK-9 attended and executed 2 separate multi dog demonstrations, participated in the pet parade, and won the handler/dog pie eating contest for both the large dog and medium dogs!!!.......(see pics in the photo section)
The 3 month effort culminated in a full blown NRP/MSP Mock Search. Our own operational dog Team of Ashley and Jett pariticipated in the excercise and made the find! Wu-Huuuuuuuu to all. (See Pics in the Photo Section :-)
CK-9 sent 4 members to Towsen MD to support the Natural Resources Police in their Active Shooter training. We got a super 45 minute brief on what to do if you are in a sitiuation like that. Then we participated with many others as wounded, and/or screaming for help vicitms in an old school building basement for the NRP teams to gain entry and quickly locate and neutralize the shooter......it was great fun for us.........a very stressful environment, but great training for the police (they did fantastic!)
Jebb, Sabre, Nyja, Starbuck and Bella all were big hits with the kids at the demo. Every kid got to be found by a real search and rescue dog, then got their picture taken with one! Loads of fun for all :-)
