Portsmouth K-9 is a top dog at police competition
PORTSMOUTH - A police K-9 and his handler earned top honors after competing in the Region 4 United States Police Canine Association's field trial certifications in Manchester.
Portsmouth Police K-9 Officer Steve Blanding and his K-9 partner Max finished third out of 37 teams in both evidence recovery and total search.
This performance has come on the heels of the recent recertification in both patrol work and narcotics detection at the North American Police Work Dog Association seminar in Chicopee, Mass., during the last week in May.
