Eureka Police K9 officers all smiles during training

FORTUNA, Calif. (KIEM) – Eureka Police say it was a successful day of K9 officer “trailing training”.

That’s a tongue twister that basically means these K9 officers Max and Vex are learning how to chase criminals.

They were getting their trailing training in on Friday off Highway 101 near the Palmer exit, where an area was blocked off for them to practice.

The students were all smiles, and Eureka Police said in a Facebook post the dogs might be thinking, “Don’t run from us – you’ll only go to jail tired.”
