Early last summer, a former K9 SAR colleague referred Ron Schara’s producer to K9SM, asking if we’d be willing to substitute for Ron & Raven during the State Fair. Needless to say, we were ‘all in’. On September 1 and 2, we put on 30 minute shows at 10am and 3pm, at the Lumberjack Arena. As all K9 SAR handlers know, these kinds of demonstrations are great for PR, and great for K9 socialization, but can also be very stressful (for both humans AND K9s). Brian, Carla & K9 Squirrel, Andrew & K9 Dixie, Sarah & K9 Niko, Denise & K9 Eva and Chad all made points with the audiences. We hope we’ll be invited back!
