Hundreds of residents came out to the Festival Grounds in Eagan Sunday to watch a K-9 demonstration. Eagan is hosting the annual United States Police Canine Association Trials this week. On Sunday, visitors met with different K-9 units from eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. This event takes place once a year, and serves as a certification process for the K-9’s as well as a competition. The skills tested include obedience, agility, suspect search, article search, and criminal apprehension.
