I've been doing some research into the whole search and rescue thing. Diva, unfortunately, very likely wouldn't pass their tests - due to some of her quirks. Maybe time and training will change that. Ryder, probably would. I emailed the Edmonton region group to get some more information. I think to begin with I'd like to take a lesson or two with a tracking person and see what happens. I'd like to take both young dogs and get an assessment done with a qualified person to see if they have any talent or interest.
And from there I'll make some decisions. The SAR lady gave me an email of a person she recommends for tracking training, so that's my next step.
