What are the dogs used for?
Blaine’s K-9’s are cross trained as Patrol dogs and Narcotics Detector dogs. They use their noses to find people, evidence, and illegal narcotics. They are also trained to protect their handlers and the public by chasing and catching suspects (they are much faster then their handlers).
