The Bend Police Department’s newest K-9s were getting some training reps in Wednesday.
Doug and Harry were at the training facility in Redmond, working on their on-the-spot looking skills and biting exercises — everything to nab the bad guys.
“Both Harry and Doug have completed their first week of patrol and we deployed them a few times,” said Cpl. James Kinsella. “They’re expected to basically complete all basic patrol dog functions at this point.”
It’s all about practice. The two-year-old shepherds will continue to train with other K-9 teams from agencies around the state to refresh their skills.
