Colorado Training - May 2010

Sue and I left Seattle Thursday around noon, with AJ (and the brown dog, of course) and my daughter, Kristen, seeing us off. Getting through security, etc. went off without any issues, thanks to the input from all of our NDSD friends. Flying was interesting … Cody and Luau got settled under the seats in front of us, and when the plane took off, so did Cody!

New Dog - New Blog

I haven't written in awhile ... sorry! So, I found a new dog back in mid-June and brought him home at 8 weeks of age. "Cody" is 1/2 Border Collie, 1/2 Australian Cattle Dog. I've given him a designer name to keep up with the other desiger dogs - he's a "Bordattle Dog!" He's awesome, and shows signs of exactly what I'm looking for in a SAR dog. He's pretty fearless, has no problem climbing up or down on anything I ask him to, has a lot of drive, and is a little pain in the butt! Just what I was looking for.

I'm So Proud of Jasper - 4/16/08

Jasper is what I consider the "old man" of the new group of dogs in training with NDSD for SAR work. There is one other "newbie" who is older than he is, but that dog came from a Wilderness SAR background and has great groundwork for Disaster SAR. Jasper, on the other hand, has no background other than starting his obedience training with me, at home, as a puppy. I've had him since I picked him up Labor Day weekend in 2005. He was 8 weeks old so at least I know he's been very socialized to both people and dogs. Environmental socialization is where he comes up short.
