Search and Rescue
In autumn 2002 we found our designation in working for the Search and Rescue Team of the German Red Cross in Kaufungen. Sophie trains Josy and Cookie is trained by me, Agnes. Thanks to a very effective and qualified training our dogs learn very fast and us people have to keep up with our studies. I'd like to send my biggest greetings to our team - they are fantastic people we love to work with!

Both dogs obviously enjoy the training and already passed their first test. They are very capable and qualified for further training.

Josy and Cookie don't show any shyness or reservation in new situations and are very confident in what they do. In working for a search and rescue organisation we have found a very senseful and fullfilling task.

Have a look at some training impressions :

Up: "Let's go!! We want to search!!!"

Middle: Josy and Cookie training the 'roping'. They don't really like it. But they were very calm.
