Here's hoping your 2022 is off to a great start!
Over the next couple of months I will be posting weekly about how to start training a dog to find people for the fun of it, for sport and for search dog work.
The upcoming posts will be a great way to have a fun activity to do with your dogs!
Plus, friends and family will be amazed at how quickly your dog can find them !
Some dogs need an activity that helps them to destress and relax just like people do. The upcoming posts will give you and your dog a great way to do just that!
Reactive dog? Hyper Dog? The skills you'll learn are a great way to redirect that energy in a safer calm controlled situation.
Here's my dog and I getting ready to track a hidden person down!
Did you know there are dog sports that use the skills search and rescue dogs do?
In the sport of K9SAR, dog and owner/handler teams practice and have fun finding hidden people with a dog. Here's a cool site to learn more about the sport which is slowly gaining interest in the USA and much more popular overseas. If you would like to get involved in the sport, feel free to contact me. I can help you train and participate.
All breeds and age of dogs are welcome.
Mainly though, I will be posting because with the increase in natural disasters we are seeing worldwide I want to help everyone learn an easy way to find family or friends in the event anyone was to go missing.
Also I want to encourage and help anyone interested in learning how to volunteer for Search and Rescue get started.
Although the posts will give everyone a fun way to spend time with dogs, family and friends additionally, those who wish to advance into dog sports and search dog work will learn how to get started.
Let's have some fun this year, and follow our dogs!
