A few weeks ago in Prescott, AZ we had a dogtoberfest at the courthouse square. There were rescue groups with dogs to adopt, dog related businesses had booths, contests, speakers, even a Catholic priest who blessed all the dogs. Many people attended and brought their dogs with them. We left our 2 dogs home because Suzie likes to fight with other dogs.

A highlight of the day was a demonstration by the Prescott Police Department K9 squad. They explained how the dogs are trained to bite on command. They start by having the dog play fetch with the training sleeve and build on that. When the dog is commanded to bite the dog is “playing fetch”, not acting aggressively.

I took the following sequence of photos of the dog charging and biting the training sleeve.
