Explorers and teens
Working Dog Foundation Explorers are a part of the Portsmouth, NH Police Department Explorers. They are interested in K-9 and Law Enforcement and are an important part of all Foundation activities. Explorers' responsibilities include helping to coordinate and set up the annual Iron Dog Challenge™ Competition, the annual Open House and the various Training & Education Seminars. They follow the Explorer "Code of Conduct" of the BSA-Explorers. Explorers must be between 14-21 years old and in school or graduated.
