THE TOP POLICE DOG IN NEW ZEALAND - “It’s very rare to have a team win so many events.”
A police dog named Saegar won the top prize at the New Zealand Police Dog Championships this past week. Saegar won multiple awards in various categories which required them to perform tracking, bite work, and other tasks. Here’s more from stuff.co.nz:
Saegar and his Nelson handler Constable Julian Lewis cleaned up at the championships held at Trentham this week.
The team won the Frank Riley Cup for the National Patrol Dog Champion team, along with the Dazuhalten Cup and Keop Family Trophy.
The pair also won the Colin Guppy Trophy for tracking, the Monaghan Trophy and Bev Laybourn-Monaghan Memorial Cup for highest marks in heelwork, and the William Rose Bowl for criminal work disciplines.
Lewis and Saegar were competing against the top 12 police dogs selected from around the country.
Not only is Saegar an awesome police dog, he’s a handsome dog too. Congratulations to Saegar and his handler! Click here for the full story, and click here for more from the New Zealand Police Department.
