Sixteen dogs and their police officer handlers tested their skills against one another in the 10th Annual Art O’Keefe Memorial K9 Trials at Zupo Field in Lodi on Saturday. 

Among them was 5-year-old Kael and his handler, Lodi Police Officer Ryan LaRue. LaRue has raised Kael since the dog was eight weeks old. They spend four hours in official training mode each week, but the work continues with training exercises LaRue runs at home. Kale, a Belgian Malinois, has been certified as a working police dog for two and half years. He is the only K9 on Lodi’s force to be dual certified in sniffing out narcotics and in protection.
