K-9 golf tournament in Waukon

By Becky Walz,

The Allamakee County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting the 3rd Annual Swinging “Fore” our K-9 Golf Tournament on Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Waukon Golf and Country Club. Each team registered before Thursday, Sept. 23, will be entered into a drawing for a prize. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and play begins at 10 a.m. Lunch is included with registration.
T-shirts and sweatshirts are also available for order. All proceeds from the T-shirt sales and golf tournament go to the Allamakee County Sheriff’s K-9 Fund for continued expenses such as equipment, training, veterinary services, etc.  
Recently, the Allamakee County Sheriff’s Deputy Ross Kolsrud and K-9 Tyr participated in the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA) Region 12 trials in St. Cloud, Minn. Ross and Tyr, along with police canines from Houston County Minnesota Sheriff’s Office, Wright County Minnesota Sheriff’s Office, Austin Minnesota Police Department and Sherburne County Minnesota Sheriff’s Office, won Top Region Team honors.
Police canines were judged on six categories consisting of obedience, physical agility, area searches for humans, article searches, criminal apprehension and criminal apprehension with gun fire.
