A handler is someone who is comfortable and competent with handling a K-9 and also competent to be able to listen, engage in conversation, pray, and proclaim Jesus Christ with those they are in contact when using the K-9 as the bridge between the handler and the person petting the K-9. All handlers will be trained and certified by LCC.
The photographer is available at many of the team activities to take photos as well as occasionally taking photos of the Comfort Dog to be used for Social Media.
