NEW ORLEANS- K-9 competitions provide opportunities for highly trained dogs and their handlers to demonstrate skills they've attained through hard work and discipline.

The St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office recently hosted its first K-9 competition and training seminar for patrol, narcotics and explosives teams. The event was held on the St. John Airport grounds and at Riverside Academy in Reserve.
