PHOENIX -- Police, military, government and security canine teams will be putting their skills to the test at the Desert Dog Police K-9 Trial at Scottsdale City Stadium this weekend.

Although he didn't get into the bite suit and offer himself up as bait, 3TV's Javier Soto got a preview of the popular event from organizer Owen Keefe, as well as a live demonstration of exactly what police dogs are trained to do.

About 60 teams are expected to take part int he trial. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. Proceeds benefit the Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association.
