Wildfire Information and Safety Guide

Wildfire Information and Safety Guide

Hey everyone 

With fires burning in several states and other parts of the world I want to share with you this useful wildfire guide McKenna from Direct Energy sent to us. Please be careful out there! After the year and half of covid19 let's all try to be responsible and careful as we venture out into the world again.

This is from Direct Energy

The 2021 summer wildfire season is currently in it’s most dangerous summer stages. In order to protect and defend forests, farms, and homes, Direct Energy has proactively created their Wildfire Information & Safety Guide to distribute to the public. In recent years we have all learned wildfires can uncontrollably and unexpectedly affect any area’s population, from the rural Pacific Northwest to our major coastal cities. With Direct Energy’s guide, individuals nationwide can be well-planned and prepared in the event of a wildfire spreading in their area.

Mantrailing for Fun, Sport and Working Dogs from Family Disaster Dogs

Coming Soon...a new book that shows everyone how Mantrailing is a great activity to do with all breeds of dogs!



What is Mantrailing? 

Mantrailing is using a dog's natural hunting ability to find one person in a crowd.

Mantrailing is a bloodhound specialty that all breeds of dogs can do too!

Mantrailing dogs smell what we cannot see!

In my Family Disaster Dogs book I tell people how any breed of dog can find its family and friends who go missing. As a Mantrailing dog trainer for many years I use this type of training in my book and in person for family disaster dogs of all breeds. 

More recently, dog trainers, dog clubs and pet owners everywhere are starting to find out that this is a great activity not only for Search and Rescue dogs but for all dogs to learn as a fun play day outside or as a sporting event.

As I noticed Mantrailing becoming popular outside of K9SAR and after talking with a few trainers and SAR dog handlers/trainers, we realized there is a need for a book and step by step lessons to help show everyone how to do Mantrailing with all breeds. 

So I have been busy the last couple of months putting the knowledge I gained from 15 years of training and working with Mantrailing dogs and teaching others into a book with pictures and step by step instructions to help start dogs and owners/handlers on this amazing journey into the world of  finding hidden and missing persons with a dog. 

I'm writing the book in more or less three section, the first part covers a little history and what makes a mantrailing dog team. The second section gets everyone started in a very short time finding people with your dogs and pet dog owners who want to use this type of dog training as a fun game and outdoor activity will learn all they need in this second section. From there, you can go on to the next section to dig deeper and advance training for sport and competing in events or become a working search and rescue dog team. 

I will be posting more information soon.
