After starting to bite, Rico was commanded to let off. But then, he went back to business, taking the “criminal” to the ground.

Officer Casey Cox and K-9 Rico represented the Prairie du Chien Police Department at the Feb. 9 Pet Expo at Nelson True Value. Rico showed the audience how he would chase and bite a criminal under his handler’s commands. Volunteer Bob Witt wore the bite suit for the demonstration. Cox explained additional details about Rico, his training, his skills and duties, associated expenses and characteristics of the K-9. For more about Rico, find the Prairie du Chien Police K9 Unit on Facebook. The annual Pet Expo featured a pet parade, demonstrations and more. Event-goers learned about the Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter and adopting cats and dogs through the organization, along with how they can volunteer or otherwise assist. People also had the opportunity to shop pet sales specials at True Value. (Photos by Correne Martin)
