Wyoming K-9s Hit the Ground Running for Yearly Cert Training

This week Casper has been the main hub for Wyoming Police K-9 certification training.

At various locations around Natrona County sixteen different dogs and their trainers have been chasing down and searching for narcotics.

Campbell County brought seven dogs from their sheriff and police forces along with dogs and trainers from Cheyenne, Douglas and a few from Rapid City.

The dogs were learning and working with their trainers to renew their yearly certifications.

Steven Dillard from the Gillette Police Department and K-9 instructor shared, “It's a very stressful week, it's a very long week but this is probably the most important week of the year for me as a k-9 handler for the police department and for most of these handlers here."

At the end of the week they will select the best dog and handler combo for another year of bragging rights.
