Watchdog Walkers event in Apple Valley

The Apple Valley Police Department will host the third annual Watchdog Walkers event 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23, at Kelly Park, 6855 Fortino St., Apple Valley. Dogs are welcome at the event, which will be held rain or shine.

The program is designed to encourage dog walkers citywide to serve as extra “eyes and ears” for the Apple Valley Police Department’s ongoing crime prevention efforts. Participants will learn how to become safer walkers, be more aware of various patterns and occurrences in their neighborhood, and how to report what they see.

Apple Valley dog licenses will also be available for purchase, and there will be a reduced-fee vaccine clinic while supplies last. All attendees will receive a free Watchdog Walker reflective tag.
