Recent Search Dog Success
RATS search dog team members have been integral in 2 national assessments held in the last month- one for USAR and the other for Wilderness search.
The USAR assessments were held in CHCH at the end of October. Janelle was the Coordinator, Linda and Brenda were both assessors and Graham and Tala were one of only 2 new teams to be assessed operational.
The Wilderness assessments were held in Dunedin in the last week. Again Linda and Brenda were working hard as assessors and Brenda also re-certitified both her dogs, Easy and Milo.
These assessments mark the nearing of another very busy year for the dog team with some real successes, a couple of disappointments but more confirmation that we are on the right track with our training.
