TSA September K-9
Volunteers Needed
3/29/19 6:32 PM
HPROA Members;

Thanks for your continuing support. In order for TSA K9 to conduct training, they must use role players.  Being a role player is pivotal to our training; and it just simply means acting like a flying passenger in the airport while maintaining the item the canine is searching for (provided by the handler). Role players are a pivotal component of the program and without constant role player support they cannot conduct this crucial training. 
 Sept 20             Friday. [More]
