- Police service dogs are bred specifically for duty use by a professional trainer at a professional facility. Service dogs cost about $15,000 to $20,000 per dog plus handler training.
- K-9 certification requires 6 weeks of intense training with the dogs.
Police service dogs provide an invaluable service not only to their human counterparts but also to the community at large.
K9 Demonstrations for Cub Scouts and Interested Citizens 2020
One of the requirements of the Cub Scout program is to meet with, and learn about, a service animal. We are receiving an increasing number of requests for small local groups who wish to have our K9s attend their meetings.
To be more efficient and not overwhelm our K9 Officers, we are scheduling set dates where those who wish can come and meet these requirements and see our K9 officers and their handlers in action.
We would invite any group, not just Scout groups, who wishes to attend any of the dates to RSVP to help us manage how many people attend at any one time. To do so contact Sgt. Chad Carter at his email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
