We are excited to hold the 2nd annual Law Dog 5k/10k and Powerlifting event sponsored by the Gardner Police Department. In addition to this year's race, we add a virtual race for people who can't attend the live race. The event is held to raise money for the Gardner Police Department K9 Unit for training and equipment. This event is a dog-friendly event for any runner. All participants will receive a t-shirt; finisher medal, and K9 Zeus poker chip; the first three finishers in each age group during the live race will receive a medal.
The K9 Unit started in December 2016 with the purchase of K9 Zeus. While originally from Slovakia, he was selected for Officer Anderson from the Hill Country Dog Center in Pipe Creek, Texas. K9 Zeus is a dual purpose K9 - trained in narcotics detection and patrol. K9 Zeus is an essential part of the Gardner Police Department. In the past five years, he has located drugs, suspects and kept numerous officers safe.
Our goal remains the same, to finance an indoor/outdoor kennel as well as an enclosed obstacle course for police K9 teams in the Kansas City Metro area. Building a structure like this will ensure that K9 Zeus and other K9 teams have safe housing when their handlers are out of town.
