Here's a press release from the King Cove Police Department: 

King Cove Police Department’s K9 
To Receive Bullet and Stab-Proof Vest

King Cove, AK – March 16, 2015 -- The King Cove Police Department’s K9, Faro, has been awarded a ballistic vest, thanks to a non-profit organization, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., and the Alaska K9 Center. The organizations raised $1,452 for Faro’s vest.

“It is extremely important to protect the dog with a ballistic vest,” said King Cove Police Officer Brad Schneider, the dog’s handler. “Just like every police officer, Faro has a very dangerous and important job.”

Faro, a two-year old German Shepard, and Officer Schneider were trained in narcotics detection and tracking at the Kasseburg Canine Training Center in New Market, Alabama. The training lasted five weeks. Faro and Schneider received certification through the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association in November 2014. Faro was put into service with the police department on Nov. 28, 2014.

“Faro has done a couple of searches,” Officer Schneider said. “Demonstrating to the community that we have the capability to use a K9 officer might make an individual think twice about using or dealing drugs.”

                On April 19th we are hosting Pat Hastings for a Structure in Action Seminar times to be announced! Check out her website http://www.dogfolk.com/. We’ll be looking for puppies 7 to 9 weeks of age for evaluation and nothing younger or older will be accepted. Then we’ll be looking for 8 to 10 adult dogs with structural issues. This seminar is open to everyone who is interested. Mushers, Hunters, anyone using their dogs with for any kind of performance activities are welcome and encouraged to join us! 

STRUCTURE IN ACTION is a new one-day workshop. It combines Pat Hastings’ Puppy Puzzle Presentation, as well as Hastings’ discussion of the value of structurally evaluating adult dogs that are being considered for a breeding program, working trials or performance competition, along with a veterinarian’s perspective on how to reduce the risk of structural injuries in working and performance dogs.

Dogs will do most anything we ask of them. The question is: Do we want to ask them to do things that they are structurally incapable of doing without breaking down? Is that what we really want to do to our most steadfast companions? The more we learn about canine structure, the more we understand what is reasonable to ask of our dogs, given their physical strengths and weaknesses.

AGENDA

·         How to evaluate the structural quality of puppies

·         The basics of canine structure

·         The weakest links

·         How to evaluate the structural quality of your adult dog

·         What your dog can do and should not be doing?

·         A vet’s ideas on how to strengthen structure and
reduce the risk of injury

·         Questions and hands-on work with attendees’ dogs

SPEAKERS

PAT HASTINGS
Pat is well respected in dog-world as an educator, author and AKC judge. Well-known for her Puppy Puzzle video, she evaluates the structural quality of over 300 litters per year.
