Dog handler Chris and trainee search dog Juno who have undertaken their Stock Test on Saturday 6th August 2023, and it is Congratulations as they now progresses to Stage 1 of their training following successful completion of the Registration criteria.
This is a test where the dogs are tested to their limits in a controlled environment amongst a flock of sheep. The dogs are not allowed to show any sign of interest in the sheep, this is a test that allows us to work our dogs out of sight at times in the open fells amongst livestock.
More information on search and rescue dogs can be found on their website: mountainrescuesearchdogsengland.org.uk
Well done to Chris & Juno.
