State and military dog it out in K-9 competition

Staff Sgt. Christopher Averill, 5th Security Forces Squadron military working dog handler, leads his 5-year-old German Sheppard Kety over an A-frame obstacle the 2013 North Dakota Peace Officer Association K-9 Police Trials at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., Aug. 14, 2013. In addition to competing against others from their squadron, Averill and Kety competed against handlers from state and local law enforcement agencies as well as security forces handlers assigned to Grand Forks Air Force Base, N.D. The course tested teamwork between handlers and K-9s in addition to serving as a chance for them to exchange advice and techniques. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Stephanie Sauberan)
