A fundraising effort started earlier this year by a determined and tender hearted young lady, SierraRose Sypult, to provide safety vests for the Beltrami County Sheriff's K9 program received another welcome addition this month. On Saturday, January 11, 2014, the Paul Bunyan Dog Training Association, Inc., represented by their President Kathy Lamping, contributed a check for $1048.00 to be used for Deputy Dan Rockensock's K9, Kayos in procuring a vest. Accepting the check on Dan and Kayos' behalf was Deputy Tony Petrie and his K9, Jessi. Tony and Jessi received a contribution from SierraRose earlier this year for a K9 bulletproof vest.

The Paul Bunyan Dog Training Association, Inc., (PBDTA) is an organization of dog owners and dog lovers who meet for the purpose of training their dogs in activities sponsored by national organizations such as the UKC, AKC, NADAC, USDAA, NAFA and TDI. These include obedience, confirmation, agility, flyball, rally, freestyle, Therapy dog, Reading Canines and tracking. They hold seminars on dog related topics. They are always interested in learning how to do the new "stuff" with their dogs and ways to improve their training methods. Check out their website

The Beltrami County Sheriff's Office extends their utmost gratitude to the generous citizens and groups that have contributed to keeping our K9 partners safe. We especially appreciate SierraRose and the Paul Bunyan Dog Training Association for their interest and dedication to this worthwhile cause.
