In addition to this latest certification, this team is also certified in Wilderness Airscent, Human Remains Detection and Avalanche.
Congratulations to Pam and K9 Cash and Claudia and K9 Moxie on receiving their certification in Land Human Remains Detection from the International Police Work Dog Association.
And to Suzanne and K9 Keb and their re-certification in Human Remains Detection with the North American Police Work Dog Association.
Recently our team hosted Search and Rescue K9 teams from all over the Northwest for a 3 day regional peer training event. We were able to offer tracts in Wilderness Airscent, Land and Water Human Remains Detection, Trailing and Disaster. In addition we held evening roundtables where people could share information related to the training of search dogs and maintain functional search teams.
David Minch graciously contributed in a very meaningful way towards our human remains detection training program as a result of sickness and surgery. Thank you David for making the best out of a trying situation.
