As a sanctioned Western States Police Canine Association event, it is expected to draw 45-50 canine teams throughout California.

The competition will begin at 9 a.m. with the Field Search phase which tests the ability of the canine team to locate hidden suspects.

The Obedience and Agility phases are combined and tests the dogs’ ability to navigate several obstacles and respond to the handlers commands of “right turn,” “left turn,” “about turn,” “turn into your dog,” “fast/slow” and “heel.”

The final Protection phase will begin at approximately 1 p.m. and judges the canine on their courage, drive, control and how well they bite. Handlers are sequestered and do not know the scenario until they walk onto the field.
