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.
