Fidos with badges to compete in Mesa

Barking punctuated by the command “Police K9, stop or I’ll send my dog!” will echo through Cubs Stadium at Sloan Park next weekend as the Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association holds its 16th annual Desert Dog Police K9 Trials.

The free event will run 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 5-6, at the stadium, 2330 W. Rio Salado Pkwy., Mesa.

Officers and their canine partners will test their skills in tactical situations, competing for the title of Top Dog.

Food and beverages will be on sale and a number of vendors will be on hand selling K9 merchandise and products for pets.
