When working with the puppies they help to get the dog socialised with strangers and encourage the dog to bark on command. This is how our dogs indicate they have found.
As a Dogsbody, you will be part of an on-going Search Dog Training programme, in all weathers in winter and summer. With your help and time, hopefully, it will make an enormous impact in the different training aspects and stages that the dogs have to achieve.
New bodies are always welcome, and mentored at first. They are encouraged to start with the young puppy dogs in their socialising stage. Then move on through the different training stages.
It is most rewarding to watch a young dog, move through these stages, gaining more experience, getting and better and better till it hopefully make the grading of Full Search Dog
Knowing you have been there as part of that dog’s training is fantastic. Even more so, when that dog and its Handler help to save someone’s life.
If you have looked at the Training Dates, you will have seen that Training takes place in many different parts of the country, maybe even in your own area.
