I joined Oger SARdogs through my current four-legged friend Sammie. He is a Border Collie / Golden Retriever cross-breed. At the age of 6 months, Sammie came into my life on March 8, 2016.
After we attended an area-search workshop via Ccoons Compass in May 2016, I became addicted to the search work. During the mantrailing sessions at Ccoons Compass it turned out that Sammie has an enormous zest to work and enjoys finding people.
Via Martine I came in contact with Oger SARdogs. I was very curious to find out what the search work really meant, so in September 2016 I went to a training session. And didn’t leave anymore.
At Oger SARdogs we mainly do rubble search, area search and detection (learning to detect a specific odor). We get a lot of satisfaction from this.
It gives us a good feeling that we can help people find their missing loved ones.
