At a recent joint training with Allynwood Academy students, EVDOG’s Trailing K9 – Eme, enjoyed a great day of running trails with (and after!) some high school students. Here is Eme with her handler, Jenn Culver & participating students.
The students are members of a special ‘club’ at Allynwood – the Dog Corps, and regularly train with members of Eagle Valley. We enjoy working with the students – they make excellent ‘lost’ subjects for the live find dogs, willing to hide in the woods and enthusiastically play with the dogs after the find. Our more experienced students step in as flankers in the field while we train any one of our dogs. They all regularly attend Dog Training classes at Allynwood, and receive specialized training to equip them for Search & Rescue field operations.
