We have both licensed, which are fully operational, and novice/trainee dogs at various stages of training. Our dogs are first and foremost family pets, although they tend to be from the working breeds. Many breeds of dog could be trained to search as they all have excellent scenting abilities, but the working breeds in general have more drive and stamina.
Meet our dogs:

Kai is a 6yr old collie, who doesn’t know the word slow when he is working.
