Talon at 1 year 10 months
Laurie spent a fun day with Steve, Kandi and their trainer, Carol Salverson. Talon’s assistance tasks were amazing. Pulls off socks, picks up and brings back cell phone, medicine bag, tennis balls, boxing glove and when told to go find Kandi and gives a paw alert when he is asked to find Kandi. They also showed off his new, long-awaited, specially made, mobility harness. They surprised Laurie with a beautiful, handmade crocheted blanket made by Kandi that Talon helped with.
Roxanne (Celhaus Turn On Your Red Light Roxanne) at 2 years
Roxanne is a Search & Rescue Dog, nationally certified in cadaver.
“Happy birthday, TT litter. No, I didn’t let her eat that whole thing. She had to share.”
Roxanne at 1 year 11 months
“Such a nice line. I brought Roxanne to a career high school last week and talked about SAR dogs. She was so wonderful with everyone, and we did a demonstration of her work. She easily went from love mode to work drive. So neutral with other dogs and easy in unfamiliar situations.”
Roxanne at 1 year 10 months
“Participating in search for missing person in Nevada. She did a good job!”
Kellan (Celhaus Truehearted Kellan) at 2 years
“Can’t believe my boy is 2 today. We are going to celebrate with Taryn and some others on Wednesday. On Saturday Kellan was in his first NACSW L1V Element trial. 4 searches on vehicles. He got his title and ranked 6th out of 37 dogs. Had 8 minutes (2 minutes for each search). His total time was 1:47. He’s getting so handsome.”
Kellan at 1 year 9 months
“’I know she will give me some popcorn if I just wait.’ He does that a lot even when I don’t have food.”
Kellan at 1 year 8 months
“Kellan is doing great doing scent work. This was from today. He’s focused. His tracking is great too. Yesterday I took him with to one my advanced dogs training. Someone didn’t show so I asked if I could work him too. He did as well as the others. He plays ball every time I sit in the chair – one ball in his mouth, while the other gets pushed around with either his foot or the ball in this mouth. So much for sitting and relaxing for a few minutes. I decided to enter Kellan in a USCSS Nosework trial host by a friend of mine. I knew it would be organized and I had trialed at the site last fall with Blair. I knew it would be a good trial for him to start at. He had 4 elements, vehicles, containers, interior and exterior. He did a Super job, very focused even when he start his vehicle search and someone started using a chainsaw on the other side of some bushes. Maybe 20 feet away. Did not phase him. He qualified in all the elements and got his Detection Dog Novice title. Not only did he get his title, he got 3rd in containers and 4th on vehicles out of 20 dogs. Very proud of my boy! One the judges said she loved watching him work.”
