At Dog Fair, Capital K9s President Kristen Fuhremann explained how this non-profit organization helps support the Madison Police Department canine unit – fund raising events and through the generous donations of individual citizens and local business.

President Fuhremann introduced Police Officer Henry Wilson and K9 Boris, of the Madison Police Department. Officer Wilson explained the role of the canine unit, as well as how the police officers and dogs are trained. He and K9 Boris mesmerized the audience by demonstrating performance commands, searches, and apprehension techniques. The Q&A session at the end of the program provided the audience members the opportunity to learn even more.

After the formal program, Officer Wilson and K9 Boris availed themselves for photos taken by enthusiastic attendees at Dog Fair. Kids of all ages appreciated this fine program.  Watch video.
