The 2015 North American Police Work Dog Association National Workshop was held in Douglasville, Ga. In honor of the event, Pet Things, a locally owned and operated pet supply store and Emerald Pet Products donated 225 “goodie bags” for each K9 team.
The event was held June 7–12, 2015 and was hosted by Sheriff Phil Miller, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit, and headed by Lt. Barnhill. The master trainers, along with K9 teams of deputies and dogs, traveled from all over the United States to participate in training and annual certification for drug and explosives detection.
Lt. Barnhill thought the workshop was a tremendous success and that the “goodie bags” donated by Pet Things and Emerald Pet Products were “a generous and thoughtful action by businesses who believe in supporting their community.”
“We are proud to partner with Pet Things to supply all-natural Twizzies lasting chews as a healthy reward to all of the hard working K9 participants,” said Glenn Novotny, VP of sales and marketing at Emerald.
“It was an honor to be part of such an important network in our community and to have our vendors participate on a local level,” said Terry Brlecic of Pet Things. “All treats were exclusively made and sourced in the USA.” The bag also included other goodies donated on behalf of Pet Things.
