The Blame Game

by Houndstooth on

There is one thing that continues to go on at our house, and that is dogs getting up early and wanting out around 3:30 in the morning.  With four dogs, the biggest problem is figuring out the instigator.  My husband and I both have differing opinions and experiences on the subject, but the blame game […]

Search And Rescue Saturday — Certifications

Eyes For You

by Houndstooth on

Not too long ago, someone offered me the opportunity to adopt a Greyhound puppy who had washed out of schooling for racing.  This little lady just didn’t have the interest and so they were looking to place her as a pet.  I saw her pictures and she is one adorable little dog.  My heart went […]

A Weekend Of Misadventure

Search and Rescue Saturday — Trailing

by Mr. Taleteller on

Finally, we discuss the trailing dogs.  Trailing dogs will follow the route of a specific person’s scent deposited on the ground as a person moves through an area. A scent article is necessary so that the dog can discriminate the scent of the missing person from that of other people or searchers in the same […]

Basically, what it […]
