Can you picture it? Adventure Island overrun by DOGS?!

Well that’s exactly what happened last week! K-9 units from several different Florida police and sheriff’s offices came together at Busch Gardens’ Adventure Island to practice their tracking skills in water. As K-9 officers in Tampa Bay they are bound to run into water scenarios at some point in their career and what better place to train!

Adventure Island is now closed for the season so more than 50 of the dogs had their run of the park. The wave pool works well to mimic the rougher waters and the kids playground portion is perfect to combine water, ladders, and obstacles.

Yes, the pool will be drained after this to clear out any fuzz or drool left behind. 🙂
