I guess that's it...

...I'm officially off the K9 team. No longer a point in doing it. I will return the GPS. Took the advise to heart and I always said that I won't be a lifelong wannabe handler that's never going to certify a dog and if we are not operational within two years than I know what I have to do.

I take SAR K9 too serious for that. It sucks because she's actually passed the "Off Trail" ...

Makes me sad and I am pretty sure that some of you have seen it coming already...

You're not a wannabe handler. You were on a team and worked/certified your dogs. That makes you the real deal.

As for doing SAR or not, I think you are better suited for IPO. Just have fun and continue to work your amazing dogs

Sorry to hear this Mrs.K- clearly that's where your heart is. I always thought from your posts and videos that your dogs seemed to be doing just fine! So I didn't see this coming.

If you don't mind me making light of the situation, you know what this means right? Time to try out agility!!!!

Seriously though- sorry to hear it. Good luck in what you decide to try next!

Sorry to hear that. I don't really know you, but I am so proud of you for trying! Many of us do not challenge ourselves enough, you had the courage to pursue one of your passions, good for you!

I don't know what happened Mrs K but I agree, you're not a wannabee handler. I'm sorry it didn't work out, but have no doubt you'll find another door to walk through real soon.

Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but I had no clue... what happened? Sorry that it isn't working out, but there are lots of other things you can do to stay busy with your dogs, I am sure!
