Ektor with his handler, State Trooper Todd Brehm

The highlight for all was a demonstration by a 6 year old German Shepard named Ektor who works for the Wisconsin State Patrol. Ektor demonstrated how he works to sniff out drugs while his handler, State Trooper Todd Brehm explained the program and answered questions.

Organizer and Instructor, Ryan Frazier shared his thoughts. “It was a great event, for one, it was a great opportunity to network with people in the Veterinary field. I met someone who is interested in teaching here which is great. I most look forward working on our next open house. While planning, new ideas came to me that will make future opens house evens even better.”
