Today at 11 a.m., despite rain, the platform of the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre was crowded with little and grown-up spectators.

We also present service animals as well as the activities of police dog handlers and horsemen. As usual, the youngest visitors will be enraptured with the "police doggy" Arni performing various tricks just for them.

You can also meet top Slovenian athletes employed with the police.
