Chuck Kirman/The Star Police Officer Dan Borgstrom of the California State University, Channel Islands, Police K-9 Unit and his dog Hero visit with Nancy Shuster, left, and Kathleen O'Dea at the "Dining with the Dogs" event Saturday at the Camarillo Ranch House.

Zak lay at his master’s feet watching the myriad people and other dogs walk by. He panted, but was soundless and obedient as his handler, Larry Johnson of the Santa Paula Police Department, spoke to passers-by.

“He’s one of the bigger dogs in the county,” said Johnson. “He’s 95 pounds and can be intimidating.” Johnson and Zak were part of the first Dining with the Dogs event at the Camarillo Ranch House in Camarillo. Sponsored by the National Police Dog Foundation along with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit and Sheriff’s Department K-9 Search and Rescue, the event drew more than 600 people and tickets for the dinner and auction event sold out.
