Dogs' day at the park is serious fun

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

With Adventure Island closed for the season, the water park went to the dogs on Tuesday.  But these weren't just any dogs -- some of the area's top K-9s and their handlers got special training in the park's pools.

With all of the water around the Tampa Bay area, it is not unusual for officers and their K-9 partners to find themselves chasing suspects or tracking down missing persons in ponds, lakes, rivers, and even the bay. 

But that water can pose a unique challenge for K-9s when they are not used to dealing with it, so dogs and trainers from the Tampa Police Department, Clearwater Police Department, Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, and even the U.S. Air Force got some practice tracking down a "bad guy" in the Adventure Island pools.
