We have a guy with a lab who is new to the team and they are awesome. The lab is 5 and it is his first test but WOW. He started training in OCTOBER and nailed it. The dog learns something once and it "gets it". As a plus, his dog always blows out his nose just before he indicates; it is very obvious. They are both absolutely amazing.

My skills as a handler have been earned slowly and painfully over time. You see someone else come in and do what it has taken you years to learn in a matter of months. You see others who struggle and struggle and never get to where you are. We are all so different but the common point is dedication. I am very excited about this guy as a team resource.

He is already talking with the folks at Maranatha (the primo place to get labs for SAR/FEMA) about getting the next dog.
