SFPD horse stables – September 2011

SFPD horse stables

Portola sits in front of two holding pens for San Francisco Police Department horses.

Our puppies, raisers, and group leaders travelled to the west end of Golden Gate Park this month for exposure to large and unfamiliar animals. Puppies in training passed by geese, seagulls, pigeons, and a few off-leash dogs around Spreckels Lake. We visited the San Francisco Police Department’s horse stables next to the Polo Fields for an up-close encounter with another animal used to navigating through city crowds. Our dogs also had a chance to view the many bicycles of the Tour de Fat festival riding through the park and even spotted a few bison in their pen.
