The Hoppings~Part 4~June 2017

Part 1 HERE, Part 2 HERE, Part 3 HERE

After the parachute display, the arena got ready for the police dog demonstration.  These are all working police dogs, except one which is still in training, and they are all German Shepherds.

After the agility round it was catch a bad man time

One of the officers dressed up as a ninja turtle (not sure why) and ‘stole’ a briefcase from a planted crowd member

You can see the doggy raring to go!

Of course the dog got him

but then wouldn’t let go..

nope..not letting go

I don’t care what you say, this turtle is mine

In the end the turtle had to release the padded arm protector and the doggy ran off happy as Larry, and everyone enjoyed the fun.

Was lovely to watch the dogs in action, and I sure wouldn’t want to be chased by one!

Stay tooned for the final episode of the Hoppings, when the Army does it’s display. 🙂

  7. I don’t love German Shepards, but dogs always seem so satisfied when they feel they’re doing a good job of something. You’ve really got some great action shots here!

  9. Cool shots, the ninja turtle thing is a bit random – maybe they’re expecting a turtle-orchestrated crime wave 🙂
