A tiny humble SAR brag

So Tygo was not the hero dog or anything, but on a search he was the first contact with the subject and came back to do his jump alert and take me in.

This is his first legit find on a real search.

Six of us and two dogs on on team one, at a search. After 5.5 hours and locating some other campers, we were shouting and the dogs got interest and started moving away from us. Then we heard a whistle then shouts then Tygo came back and jumped on me and took me in.

We would have found them without dogs but I'm quietly super proud of my boy as only a newbie can be.

I am soo happy for you!! Awesome awesome job!! I have a small brag too, if I may, as we both had dogs certified within about 6mos of each other... My girl and I were called as the only dog team on a 74hr + aged trail.. We have never worked that long of aging, but we gave it a go... She was key in getting DOT over 30 miles (we jumped trail via car after a mile or more of trailing to next locale and did same thing).. When a man tracker (human) found footprints and pole prints my girl had to locate the track (we were positioned away from actual trail and didn't know LKP, but close enough for her to smell it) and confirm it was the subjects... She did...

This all lead to us believing she was mobile and still following the trail system even though it was different then her agenda.. She was found layer at a containment point.. So we didn't actually find the person like you did (which is AWESOME!! CONGRATS!!!) but we were intrigue in DOT, confirming DOT and footprints... I was scared!! My girl worked 8hrs and never gave up on grueling 44f pouring rain and rugged country... Very proud of her!

Karin, so happy for you and Tygo! You have worked so hard and this is a great success for you. Way to go! (and I am sorry if my little brag was ill placed, I was excited too and had to share )
