DONATION TO CITY OF DOVER POLICE DEPARTMENT

Blue Heron Agility Dogs of Delaware (BHAD) presented a $1,000 check to the City of Dover Police Department on May 6, 2017 at the agility trials in Frederica, Delaware to cover the cost of a new K9 protective vest.  The check was presented to Captain Spicer, Officer Figueroa and his K9 partner, Reeko.   Also attending the presentation were AKC (American Kennel Club) judges Ginger Robertson and Zach Davis. 

This donation will provide a protective vest to the newest 4-legged member of the department.  Captain Spicer indicated they will be purchasing a new K9 this month. 

BHAD is a small AKC sanctioned performance club.  We have been providing AKC Agility trials in Delaware and Maryland for 6 years.  The funds from the events go back into our community through the donations for protective vests and other canine needs.  The Club has been able to provide 7 vests over the past 4 years.  Another vest will be donated in September at our next agility trial to be held at Heartland Equestrian Center in Frederica, Delaware. 

Our Club goal is to make sure all of our K9 partners are protected with the best possible equipment.  We are very proud of the fact that a club as small as ours, (33 members), has been able to bring attention to canine training and awareness, and we are able to offer 3 agility trials per year in our area.
