We had a visit from Officers Chris and Sam who came to tell us all about their police dogs. One was trained to find phones who did a brilliant job of finding Mrs Madeley's which was hidden in our tractor and she was rewarded with her tennis ball. Luna is at school just like us and is learning to be a police dog and Champ is a bigger dog who is very experienced police dog. Officer Chris showed us the jacket he wears when training the dogs and also showed us inside his van. He has lots of dog food and dog toys for training the dogs!
