The Cascade K9 Jamboree is moving its annual fund-raising event, featuring extreme air dock diving, to two days during Sportsman’s Holiday weekend.
Connie DeBusschere, a Sweet Home Municipal Court clerk and a local dog trainer and enthusiast, and Sweet Home Police Officer Sasha McDonald began the Jamboree event last year as a way to raise funds to pay for the Police Department’s K9 program. McDonald is the handler for Gemma, a Belgian malinois trained to detect drugs, and as a way to educate the public in responsible pet ownership and safety.
