Hoofprint Flurry

Born: March 14, 2013. Sire: Hoofprint Tupac Dam: Hoofprint Pendana Bred By: Joanne Chanyi Owned and trained by: Cheryl Dash in Alberta, Canada. The test we took this July 2015 was with an American company (Objective First Tactical K-9) while we were attending a Cadaver/Trailing Seminar in Kalispell, Montana. The standards tested on were for the Human Remains Detection (Land) and Flurry passed with no problems, even in 100 degree temperatures. His bark alert is bang on. This is Flurry’s first certification in any profile. We are now waiting to be certified in wilderness and ditch through the Canadian Search Dog Association sometime this summer/fall. He shouldn’t have a problem with that. In addition to the SAR work, we have also been screened in for Zebra/Quagga Mussel detection. Check out the Working Dogs for Conservation website. This is a new initiative through my current employer (Alberta Environment and Parks) in which dogs are used to detect the invasive species. I didn’t want to take on a new dog, so I had Flurry tested and things are good to go for next year if I still want to pursue it. Cheryl Dash

Summit Search and Rescue Dogs is a 16 + year old SAR team that is based in northeast Ohio and is the search and rescue resource for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

She is now 19 months old. She loves the search "game" and has tremendous drive for the work. She is very agile which is required to do this demanding work. She is very serious when working and has great focus. In order to achieve this certification she was evaluated by three independent evaluators in several areas. These areas included a 40 acre and a 65 acre search wilderness search, a building search, a search in or on the shoreline of water and a search for buried cadaver materials of various types and age.  She completed her 40 acre search successfully locating the source in 67 minutes and her 65 acre search successfully in 2 hours. Special thanks to Joanne and Beth Barkley. This is the second pup that Beth Barkley has chosen for Lou Ann and both have been outstanding working dogs.
