BHAD Does Good Deed for Delaware State Police

December 01 2013 by BHADD

At our November 5, 2013, meeting, held at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, our club’s treasurer, Denise Jester, presented representatives from the Delaware State Police Canine Unit with a $2,000 check to go towards the purchase of two bulletproof vests for their canine partners. Corporal Lenny Aguilar, along with two other officers and their canine partners, shared their program and experiences with us. Aguilar introduced us to Corporal Chris Donaldson with K9 Ripper and Corporal Bill Brennan with K9 Dirk, who described their training with and personalities of their dogs. In turn, Ripper and Dirk showed us how eager they are to please their human partners as long as they can get their only reward, a tennis ball!

Because the meeting room at the hospital was too small to show us safely what Dirk and Ripper have been trained to do, Aguilar intends to provide us with a working demo at BHAD’s next trial at Heartland Stables in Frederica, DE, in February.
