OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/6/14) — K-9 teams participating in this week's United States Police Canine Association Region 5 Trials in Owensboro assembled Tuesday night for a free public presentation of how the dogs benefit police work.
The dogs performed several demonstrations including jumping over barricades, sniffing out "suspects," and engaging them to help apprehend them for their owners.
The event was held on the football field at Daviess County High School.
More than 40 K-9 handlers are in town this week for the certification trials, which are required to receive annual re-certification.
