Mysen and his handler, Const. Kent Wagner, will be going up against RCMP and municipal handlers and their canines from across Canada.

“Mysen has trained hard and is looking forward to the competition,” said Const. Wagner of the Kelowna Regional RCMP Police Dog Service.

The police dog teams will be judged on their skills and abilities in tracking, narcotic/explosive detection, search, obedience and criminal apprehension scenarios.
