NATIONAL K9 VETERANS DAY
Many things changed after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. Men were drafted, women rolled up their sleeves and built war supplies, and dogs were called to duty.
Dogs for Defense was a program initiated by Mrs. Alene Erlanger. Along with the American Kennel Club and a handful of breeders, the group aimed to train the dogs for military use....
Over the years the military, police and rescue have developed a variety of training methods for K9 units. Their training is tailored to meet the demands of the job and each animal and handler carries out his or her duties to the fullest.
Keep an eye out as you travel around this week. We are having a #findKwame Scavenger Hunt! the book "Solo" by Kwame Alexander will be hidden in various locations around Portsmouth. Be sure to check back to our F.B. page for hints. #PPL #TidewaterReads2018 #PortsmouthPublicLibrary
