If you like dogs, Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley is the place to be on Tuesday night, when the Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association will give a demonstration of some of the 100 police K9s in town this week for its annual conference.

Prescott Valley Police will host the conference through the week, beginning on Monday, with seminars, certifications, and scenarios to give dogs and their handlers the experience and training they need for their jobs. Handlers also will hear about veterinary care and law as it applies to police K9s.

More than 100 dog/handler teams will be part of the training, said PV Police K9 Officer Paul Hines, who started his K9 career with Belgian Malinois "Joey," and now works with shepherd, "Kio." On Monday through Thursday, teams will undergo testing for their required yearly certification. On Wednesday and Thursday, the teams will participate in scenarios in Prescott Valley and in Prescott locations, many in businesses where owners have made their establishments available for the training.

Tuesday night's demonstration will include scenarios in which dogs are sent into buildings to apprehend suspects, assist their handlers in searching buildings, take down fleeing suspects, and find drugs and explosives. The demonstrations are fast moving and exciting, and leave audiences with an appreciation of the dogs' abilities and their relationship with their handlers.

The free event will begin at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday at Tim's Toyota Center. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. so people can shop at animal related vendors and meet some of the dogs and handlers before the demonstration.
