K9 Kait visits elementary students

Deputy Hunter, K9 Deputy Jacob Lewis, and K9 Kait came to visit Manson Elementary students today. K9 Kait is a border collie rescue that is trained in narcotics detection. Kait is partnered with Deputy Jacob Lewis and assigned to the Chelan County Regional Justice Center. Students learned that Kait is a “finder dog” and can smell 50-100 times stronger than a human. Kait is trained to detect specific oders using a toy reward. Students watched as Kait sniffed her way to a secretly hidden scent object and then had the opportunity to give her some love afterwards.
