 From battlefields to street beats, and from helping those with disabilities to searching for missing people, dogs are often called on to be more than companions. Dogs have been used as companions and protectors ever since they were domesticated 12-15 thousand years ago.

Join us for this informative and engaging program where you'll learn how dogs help humans and will meet Ranger, a two-year-old bloodhound who was laid off from the Polk County sheriff’s office due to budget cuts---but who found a job with Bend Police and Officer Kyle Voll. Officer Voll and Ranger will be joined Officer Supplee and Zlatan (a Belgian Malanois) and Officer Kinsella and Haras (also a Belgian Malanois).
