In January of this year we received a grant from the PETCO Foundation, that will help us offset some of that cost to our members, and allow us to provide our members the best training possible. This training includes meeting state and national K9 standards, state and national member standards and continuing education. All of these are extremely important to the integrity and professionalism of our organization. In addition, since some of our cases do go to court for prosecution of offenders, we must be ready and well trained to properly handle evidence, and to testify in court.
In March with the support from PETCO we were able to send 3 of our handlers and their K9s to a trailing seminar, in addition we will be able to have the above handlers to attend a national certification test.
Thanks, PETCO with your help we have 3 handlers and k9s to help further our mission.
