I finally have procurred enough dogs to start my drug detection class, scheduled to begin, June 19th. I'll have 6 green dogs and two trained dogs with new handlers. The two new handlers with trained dogs will attend the 1st week, as it's mostly academics, then they will sit out and rejoin the class for weeks 7,8,9 and 10. The other six handlers, 5 Troopers (my department) and 1 city officer from a nearby city all have green dogs and will attend the entire 10 weeks. It's a good deal for any city, if I'm in class, they can attend free of charge on a space available basis. The class will have 3 Labs, 1 Golden, 1 Chessie, 2 GSD's and 1 Rottie. One Lab and the Chessie are already trained. I have 3 classes scheduled after this drug class. An explosives detection, patrol dog and another drug class.
