Search And Rescue Saturday–That Working Dog You Want

by Mr. Taleteller on

Okay, readers, today’s Search And Rescue Saturday is admittedly a re-post from a few years ago.  In the last two weeks, I’ve received a few emails from people interested in getting “working” dogs.  I thought this would be a good time to share our experience with my K-9 partner, Kuster during his early years with […]

Search And Rescue Saturday–A New Year

by Mr. Taleteller on

Last week we looked back, this week we look forward.  What does 2018 bring in?  Here are team Küster’s 2018 goals for the upcoming year.
