thanks! i have no idea about any of this, but it has always been on my list of things to achieve and pursue in life. a natural segue from GSDs and being a geologist with extensive field experience into wilderness SAR.
intermediate air scent tracking- setting trails/tracking, simulated "rescue" find work... that's what the handlers here have called it after we graduated from the basic air scent "find" work.
my gsd has too low a prey drive to excel beyond the intermediate 5 acre work.
my next gsd will be of working lines, though.
